Facebook Launches 'Subscribe' Button For Websites And Blogs

Earlier in September, Facebook added 'subscribe' button with which Facebook users could subscribe to any one's Facebook posts and read them, if that particular user had enabled subscriptions. Facebook added this subscribe button so that you could connect with interesting people who aren't your friends.

In similar fashion, Facebook has launched a new social plug in for websites, the 'Subscribe' button which the developers can add on their website, allowing their site visitors to get updates from their reporters and journalists in their News Feeds. It essentially works like the Twitter's 'follow' option. Previously we could only like a single post on websites. The subscription features for the websites is an extension of Facebook subscribe feature.
The Subscribe button for websites works similar to the like button on Facebook; once clicked the user will begin seeing the public posts of the person they have subscribed to in his or her News Feed. The subscribe action is also shared -- allowing others to subscribe directly via the News Feed stories, and further increasing viral distribution.
Facebook developer,
Stoyan Stefanov.
