The new features that are getting added to Facebook, make it very much unique than its competitors. The addition of new social games, new applications and new features on Facebook is an attempt to look different from other social sites. Currently a new button named “subscribe” has been added on to Facebook, which allows users to follow the person without adding them to their friend’s list as well as being able to subscribe to their own friends feed.
According to the recent blog post of Facebook, it has been stated that,” The subscribe button is going to make it easier for the user to follow the actions that are taken by their friends as well as to follow the people who you personally do not know like journalists, artists as well as public figures. The subscribe button will soon appear on every Facebook user profile which will allow you to follow them. “
The use of the subscribe button will help you in following ways:
- Choose what you can see from Facebook users in the News Feed

The subscribe feature on the Facebook is having the juice of Twitter and made the improved friends list. The subscribe feature is also similar to the Google Plus circles that allows friends, colleagues at work to connect with you in a smarter way.
