KOMPAS.com – Many people love Twitter because of the practicality compared to Facebook. In Facebook, if you receive a friend request from someone, then you will automatically be able to get all the status updates, and vice versa. However, in Twitter, if you do not follow someone, then you will not see the status of a person even if he or tweet to follow you.

Weakness Facebook is if you want to follow a celebrity status, you have to send a friend request. If the request is ignored, you will not be able to get the update status of celebrities. However, Facebook has now changed. Social networking sites with the largest user makes a feature like Twitter.

The feature is called Subscribe. Subscribe button is already available in stages so that any Facebook user can use the key. Subscribe is a service that helps the users to still get status updates from someone despite not being friends on Facebook. Try clicking the following link http://www.facebook.com/about/subscribe then click on “allow subscribers” and fill that up.

There will be a question of whether you allow others to become your subscribers, if so, choose on. Then there is the question of whether you allow Subscriber you submit a comment, if so, choose on. Then click okay, then people will be able to get your status updates without having to be friends on Facebook. Other people who have become friends on Facebook can choose if the subscriber is ignored by your friendship request.

“Now you can find out information from journalists, celebrities, and political figures, and others as well. Click the Subscribe button on someone’s profile to get their public updates in your News Feed,” Facebook said as quoted by the Telegraph website.

Subscriber is a new button will appear on every page of Facebook users, to the right of the message and adding friends. This button allows everyone to subscribe to public updates from people you want. Conversely, you can also read the status of other people around the world without having to make friends with your subscribers.

The move is seen by experts as a direct challenge to Twitter, and efforts to make more people share a large amount of public information, not just with their friends. Interestingly, when a Facebook user sends a friend request to someone else, now they automatically become a subscriber user status updates, without having to click the Subscribe button again.

On 2 September 2011 will also be announced Facebook rumored digital music service in partnership with Spotify and MOG. Let’s see what else will be done up to provide services for hundreds of millions of active users.

Maximize List, Facebook Try to Block the Circle Google +

Facebook continues to add new features to meet the challenges of the social networking service providers. In addition to features similar Subscribe Follow on Twitter, Facebook recently also maximize the features list to break the power of Google+ Ciccle.

List is a feature grouping friends on Facebook and restrictions on who can see a status us. This feature is already there before Google+ launched. Just how Facebook groups less interesting with the way Google displays Circle albeit with the same function.

Previous feature terkesna hidden under each state to be created on Facebook. There will be a choice, a group who can see the status of whether everyone or friends only include exceptions anyone who can not see.

However, now grouping has been done since the beginning. When going to add a friend on Facebook, will be asked to list where new friends. Each person can add the names of the desired list. For a list of friends who are already there, in the Friend also there is the option to post to the list each list based on profile information.

There is a difference in the concept of adding friends on Google+ because it looks more like a follower and user than Facebook that can only be 2-way when a friend request is accepted. Google+ Facebook digadang be a tough competitor but I instead let the slow development in Google+ so Facebook has a lot of time peering Google+ excellence gap.

Now, whether these Facebook features would be enough interest to retain users into tidka switch to Google+? Wait for its development
