Facebook Pushes the Subscribe Button

Facebook is making yet another change to its set up along the lines of Google+.

The Palo Alto-based startup has launched a Subscribe button for websites, which allows users to get updates from journalists, celebrities and news organizations.

The plug-in is already live on several sites across the web. Once a Facebook user clicks on the subscribe button, that person's post will begin showing up in their newsfeed.

"The subscribe action is also shared -- allowing others to subscribe directly via the News Feed stories, and further increasing viral distribution," Facebook wrote on its blog.

The button was first launched in September.
