Here's how it works:
  1. Anybody can ask a question
  2. Anybody can answer
  3. The best answers are voted up and rise to the top

So the Facebook Subscribe button is pretty great for those who want to maintain their social life and start building a public persona, and is a great alternative to pages for those people.

But switching to this alternative loses the brilliant one-click Like button for websites.

Do Facebook offer a solution which allows you to add a subscribe button for your website?

It's pretty easy, facebook offer a generator here http://developers.facebook.com/docs/reference/plugins/subscribe/ essentially it's a like button with different text.

I don't think this was available when I originally asked the question, thanks :) – sanjaypoyzer Apr 19 '13 at 18:46

I am not sure to understand what you mean. The "Facebook Authentication" button is totally different from the like/share button and not an alternative.


I personally have both on my website, you can also add Facebook comments to posts linked to share/posts with optional facebook registration for your guests.
