Facebook goes Twitter-esque with “Subscribe” feature

With Google+ just around the corner and while it’s not getting that steam recently, Facebook still sees it as a threat and has been launching features here and there to rival Google+. The latest of these is their new “Subscribe” feature. Like in Google+ and first seen in Twitter, this allows users to “follow” and connect to each other without being added as a friend. Unlike Google+ and Twitter however, the subscribe option only appears when the user actually chooses others to subscribe. Furthermore, only updates posted as public will be in the subscribed users’ feed. Those who will subscribe then has an option to either receive all updates, most updates or only the most important of updates.
