All of us are subscribed to our friends by default on Facebook. Like it or not, that brings in the bad with the good. Apart from this social networking side of things, Facebook also gives you a Public Subscription feature. Using this you can subscribe to anyone’s public feed without being friends with them.
Subscribing to ‘strangers’ is easy – Hop over to their timeline and click on the Subscribe button. Once you subscribe, you can see their public posts in your news feed.
You can go to the subscriptions suggestions page to discover people from all strata of society. The list includes famous names as well as not-so-well known ones.
To control the types of updates you want see about someone you’re subscribed to, hover your mouse over the Subscribed or Friends button at the top of their profile (timeline) and click Settings. Uncheck the type of update you don’t want to see in your news feed.
