Today Facebook announced a new feature they’re simply calling the Subscribe Button. This option will allow users to “subscribe” to other users’ public posts in what can only be called a shot over both Google+ and Twitter‘s collective bows. The truly interesting aspect of this feature is that it will allow all of Facebook’s 750 million users to connect in this manner – even if they aren’t friends.
Facebook has announced that this feature will be available in “a few days” and tops off an exciting run of new features – including smart lists, video chatting, and group chatting – from the social networking giant.
