Subscribe Button in your Facebook Account

In facebook most of the things people post will be really personal to them, family or friends. Non-Friends will not have any interest on these posts or feeds. But there are some posts which may interest a wide range of users even who are not your friend on Facebook. So to resolve the issue without making your profile as public Facebook introduced a new feature called ‘Subscribe’.

Now even a non-friend can follow your posts in Facebook by subscribing to your posts [ Twitter got the same functionality ]. So once anyone subscribe to your posts, he/she will get your posts listed in his/her Newsfeed and this is restricted only to the posts with a privacy set as “Public’.
