THE Facebook news subscription feature gives one the ability to subscribe to news and control the information one sees from friends or businesses.
One can now subscribe to see all, most, or only important updates.
Facebook’s blog explains it in more depth but basically, if one select to see all updates from someone, then they will see everything that person posts. If you select most updates, then they will see roughly the same amount of posts that they are used to, but if one selects to see only important updates, then Facebook will only show them important highlights once in a while.
This new subscription feature allowing one to elect to see all the posts from certain people will obviously be more beneficial for businesses and can save one a lot of time as one won’t have to remember to check out various different pages throughout the day.
All the information one wants to see will be automatically siphoned through their personal news feed and the ‘Live News Ticker’ will give real time updates from people as it happens live on the web.
With the live news ticker, if a friend comments on someone else’s status, one gets to see it right away even if not friends with the other person without having to visit either page. Another useful bonus for businesses as now all one’s friends get to see one’s recent activity regardless of whether they visit their page or not.
As always they have the option to unsubscribe, but chances are if they are friends they will want to see what one is posting or “liking.”
See you all next week.
