3 months back in September Facebook introduced Subscribe button for profiles which lets users to subscribe to your public updates on Facebook. When you subscribe to a user’s public updates, his/her updated will start showing on your Facebook wall. Now Facebook has introduced subscribe button for websites which give visitors the option to subscribe to contributors in one click.
The Subscribe button for websites works in the same way as the button on Facebook; once clicked the user will begin seeing the public posts of the person they have subscribed to in his or her News Feed. The subscribe action is also shared – allowing others to subscribe directly via the News Feed stories, and further increasing viral distribution.
How to Add the Subscribe Button
The subscribe button can be added in the same way as we add the Facebook like button using XFBML or an iframe.
Please note that users can only subscribe to your public updates if you have enabled subscriptions on your profile. To enable the subscriptions click on Subscribers tab on your profile and then Allow Subscribers.
