In an announcement, company posted features of subscribe button:

  • Choose what you see from people in news feed.
  • Hear from people, even if you’re not friends.
  • Let people hear from you, even if you’re not friends.

Facebook subscribe button has one good point, it’s not switched on for everyone and hence user can choose to be apart from it. Users who are already friends with someone, will see a Subscribe button with a drop down and they will receive all, most, or important updates by that person.

With the addition of Subscribe button, users will no longer have to use multiple services for different relationship based on real-life friendship or interest. Also, users will no longer suffer from annoying stories of scores or item earned on social game by their little brothers.
