Do not miss any new update

Add a Subscribe Button to your Facebook Profile

Posted by aamir khan

Facebook has just added a new option to profile pages that would let people “subscribe” to your profile just like the way people follow you on Twitter. Whenever you post an update on Facebook with the privacy set as “public,” it will appear in the news stream of your subscribers. To put this in more simple terms, Subscribe is to Facebook profiles what Like is to Facebook pages.

The only difference is that you get each and update when your “like” a Facebook page whereas you only get public updates when your “subscribe” to a Facebook profile. You can subscribe to my public Facebook updates at Add the Subscribe option to your Facebook Profile If you would like to add the Subscribe button to your own Facebook profile, go here.

Before you do that, it may be a good idea to double-check that only stuff that you really want to share with non-friends is public. To confirm, go your Facebook profile page, hit the “View As” button and then click the “public” link to see what updates in your profile are public.

You can have unlimited number of subscribers to your profile but you can subscribe to a maximum of 5,000 profiles. You can download this PDF, courtesy the Facebook Public Figures page, to learn more about the new Subscribe option and how it differs from a regular Facebook page. On a related note, Facebook is using the standard RSS icon with the new Subscribe feature which is confusing because, technically, these aren’t really RSS feeds – you can’t get them in, say, Google Reader.
