You’ve always been subscribed to friends. Now you can hear from journalists, celebrities, political figures and other people too.On Wednesday, Facebook announced a new Subscribe feature that allows users to share updates with a wider audience without having to befriend them. Now you can click the Subscribe button on someone’s profile to get their public updates in your News Feed.
This new feature came in right after the recent launch of smart lists, better suggestions, and new categorizing options for friends.
Facebook’s new feature doesn’t only give users control over what they want to see and share, it’s also a straight shot at Google+ and Twitter. Since the Subscribe feature is newer than other social networks, it is a improved version of what other social networks have established since the begining.
