Facebook: Releasing a ‘Subscribe’ Button?

Facebook is testing a new feature that will raise privacy issues again.

Facebook is testing another feature that will allow you to receive alerts from a specific friend. Whether a crush, loved one, daughter, son or enemy name it and you’ll have it.

A site called AllFacebook reported earlier that there is a new feature popping up on friends’ profiles. Facebook responded to the psot on the mentioned blog:

“This feature is being tested with a small percent of users. It lets people subscribe to friends and pages to receive notifications whenever the person they’ve subscribed to updates their status or posts new content (photos, videos, links or notes).”

Just like YouTube and Twitter, when you hit on “subscribe” you will automatically receive notifications on your new notification bar on top of the site. We’re not yet sure if this will work on a non-friend which is more or less stalker-like. The notifications will include, comments, status update and recent activities of the person you happen to “follow”.

This will be a good feature for those who wanted special update news on friends, family, and loved ones but somehow the nosy people might just subscribe to you for them to know your every move.

Let us know if this Facebook Subscribe is good or eerie for you.
