Facebook has now come up with a new subscribe button. This button allows you to view the feed of a friend or anybody else on your wall, even if you are not a friend tom them on Facebook. This means that even if you haven’t added a friend on Facebook, you can subscribe to his/her feed and can view their feeds on your profile.
The subscribe button will appear at the top right corner of every profile. If you are a friend the you will automatically be subscribed to the other person’s feed. But subscribing comes in handy when you want to view the feed from a celebrity or someone famous. Just hit the subscribe button and all their status updates and new will appear on your wall. This subscribe button is kind of like the Follow button on Twitter. Facebook is really trying hard to improve what is already good. Hence the subscribe option.
But make sure to check your privacy options as anyone who subscribes to your feed can view everything that you post on your wall. So make it a point to ensure that subscriber’s are not allowed to see what you don’t want them to see. You can control what type of updates you would like to receive from the person you have subscribed to and also what you want others to see from your own profile. You can even unsubscribe from a friend’s feed. This does not mean that you will no longer be their friend. This only means that you will no longer be able to view the updates from your friend’s wall.
So only time will tell whether this new addition to Facebook will be “liked” by users or not. But do make sure to check it out and tell us what you think.
