Did you read that title? Yeah! Facebook is now releasing a brand new subscribe button with which you can hear updates from people who aren’t your friends! Facebook wrote a blog post titled “Introducing the Subscribe button” in their blog. That’s when I came to know about this new subscribe button introduced by Facebook. As we can see there, Facebook has now started to roll out this new subscribe button to all it’s users.
So What’s This New Subscribe Button About?
This new subsribe button has three main uses. With this button:
- You can control what you see in your News Feed
- Subscribe to people who are not your friends, and hear their voices!
- People can hear your voice, even though they are not your friend!
You have the power to control your News Feed
You can also control, what kind of posts you want to see like photos alone and app requests too! You can hide photos from a particular person but see another friend’s photos. And the list goes on.
Subscribe to interesting people
The subscribe button is not available to everyone right now. It is being rolled now to all Facebook users. So if you don’t see a subscribe button in someone’s profile, just don’t get crazy. Wait for a few days and check back again to see the subscribe button.
Others can subscribe to you
If you want others to hear you, you must set the default sharing option to public. If a particular post / status is shared only with a few of your friends, your subscribers cannot see that post.
So what do you think about this new update?
