Facebook's Subscribe Button Unveiled

Facebooks' new "Subscribe Button" is being unveiled over the next few days and you'll start seeing it on Facebook profiles. 

What does it do, you ask? The Computer Whisperer is here to help explain. 

The new "Subscribe" button: 

  1. Allows you to choose what you see from people in your News Feed
  2. Allows you to hear from people, wheter you are friends or not
  3. Lets people see your news feed, even if you're not friends. 

You can choose what you see in News Feed

With the Subscribed button, you can choose how much you see from your friends`posts in your News Feed:


  • All updates: Everything your friend posts
  • Most updates: The amount you'd normally see
  • Important updates only: Only highlights, such as a new job or move

You can choose what types of updates you see. Perhaps you just want to see photos from one friend, no stories about games from another and nothing at all from someone else....the Subscribe button gives you full control. 
It is much like Twitters`s "Follow" button. 

Hope that helps!

Google Plus...What?

So what is Google Plus (aka Google +)?
In a nutshell, Google + is Googles' answer to Facebook. It started with a simple "like" button which was called the "+1" button. (See article above.)

It is a social network that features "Google Circles", which allows you to organize people into Friends, Family, Business Contacts, etc. You simply drag your contacts into these circles and you can then choose who you send information to.

"Hangouts" is used to chat in virtual rooms with people in your Circles.
"Sparks" is like Google Reader and will send you tidbits such as video, articles etc. based on your interest and automatically is grouped into like-minded items.
"Hurdles" is used to group message people in your circles. The "Stream" page is similar to Facebooks' news feed. You can share content and see what your friends are sharing.
Google+ Photos allows you to upload and share photos with your friends. You can use the simple image editor to add tags and manipulate the images.
Google+ Profiles page is what you think - allowing you to create your profile and list interests, photos and occupation, etc. 

It's invite only at this point, folks but stay tuned, the next-generation, HTML5-powered web app is headed for the mainstream. It already has 10 million users - nowhere near Facebooks' hundreds of millions, but mark my words and watch this one, it's going to challenge Facebook!

How do I get an invite to Google+? If you contact me via my Contact Page and "Like" my website via Facebook (when signed in to Facebook) or Google +1 (when signed into Google), I will give a limited number of users an invite! Simply let us know you've 'liked' us using our contact page (be sure to include your email address) and we'll send you the Google Plus invite.

     The Day the +1 Button was born.

Everyone likes birthday parties. This day is the first day that Google released the Developer Tools publicly for web owners to figure out what to do with and for users like you.....well, you're probably not even sure what it's for, right? Well, whats what I'm here for.

This brings us to my first question: What's that "+1" Button fuss about anyway? Initially it's a new Google feature that is similar to a facebook 'like' button but let's your friends know what "items" you like and let's you know what "items" your friends like. This could be a website, a pair of shoes, a magazine article that was particularly compelling, your favorite sports team like the Canucks, the Computer Whisperer ( articles, services or it's great get the idea! 

It's also a way to organize groups of items/articles/things etc you may want to find later. My preliminary guess is this is going to be the next big thing in Social Marketing. That's why I have it on every page on my website so people can find out about me. We can help do this on your website and have many other marketing strategies. Contact us to find out more!
