Facebook Planning a 'Subscribe' Button For The Web [thenextweb.com]
Speaking on stage at LeWeb 2011, Joanna Shields, VP & Marketing Director EMEA at Facebook announced that the world’s largest social network is to launch a new Subscribe button that will allow Facebook users to subscribe to user updates anywhere on the web.

Similar to Twitter’s Follow button, Facebook is to debut a new social plugin that can be embedded on websites to allow visitors to subscribe to updates with the click of the button – perfect for brands, personalities and journalists that wish to use their Facebook account to deliver breaking or important updates.

But it won't be the 'click of a button' - every time you click on an FB link, there's that dialog box that says (roughly translated from FB-talk):

Hey, Idiot! You do realise that if you click the button below, you consent to us giving all your data and your grandmother's phone number to the scammer who sponsored this link?

Please click the "I Am An Idiot" Button to Continue


So I guess it'll be a total success ;)
