Facebook Subscribe Button

Till now it was not easy to customize what appears in our Facebook news feed.  That’s a big issue if you do not want to see game updates in your feed, or would love to read new posts from a Facebook user that you do not want to or cannot befriend.

The new Facebook subscribe button supposedly takes care of this by providing users with better news feed controls. The button will appear later this week on profiles of friends and other users provided that they have activated the feature for non-friends.

Facebook Subscribe Button

According to Zach Rait of Facebook it servers 3 purposes

  1. Choose what you see from people in News Feed
  2. Hear from people, even if you’re not friends
  3. Let people hear from you, even if you’re not friends
If you are already seeing your friends updates in the news feeds now you can customize them.
  • All updates: Everything your friend posts
  • Most updates: The amount you’d normally see
  • Important updates only: Just highlights, like a new job or move
One can also decide what types of updates you see. For example, you could see just photos from one friend, no stories about games from another, and nothing at all from someone else.

Subscribe to Interesting People

The Subscribe button also lets you hear from interesting people you’re not friends with—like journalists, artists and political figures.If you see a Subscribe button on your favorite blogger’s profile, this means you can subscribe. Just click the button to get their public updates right in your News Feed.

You can Also Get The Subscribe button

To let people subscribe, go to the Subscriptions Page and click Allow Subscribers. Once you allow subscribers, you can decide who can comment and what notifications you get. You’ll also see a Subscribers tab on your profile, where you can see who subscribes to you
