I just read an blog post from Digital trends regarding the subscribe button on Facebook personally I am correction I have never been a fan of the subscribe button on Facebook how a. How about you have you used the subscribe button?
This is really good news about the subscribe button being changed to a follow button. I love the idea that Facebook is quote borrowing quote from Facebook Twitter here is the statement that Facebook had to say…
The functionality will be the same, but the button will now read ‘Follow’ instead of ‘Subscribe’.
Is this yet another warning sign that Twitter is closing the gap on FB
Or is it simply clever copywriting on FB’s part, due to the fact ‘subscribe’ inherently suggests some form of payment? (People tend to only want FREE stuff on FB!)
While Facebook hesitated, for obvious reasons, to make a more direct correlation to Twitter’s with using the same language when it first introduced, it’s caving now and will replace Subscribe with Follow.
There aren’t any changes to the buttons or how it functions, for the record. Instead the update is simply a superficial change. Instead of seeing sites and users within and outside of Facebook advertising a Subscribe button, it will read Follow. That’s it, we promise. Since the Subscribe button can also be found not only on third-party sites, the word change will take effect in user’s Facebook Interest Lists.
The rewording makes the feature more recognizable. Twitter of course popularized the use of “follow,” however many other services like Quora and Instagram use it too. I love the idea of consistency between the different platforms!
