Facebook on Wednesday announced it will begin to change its terminology for profile "subscriptions" to "follows," using the same phrasing as social network rival Twitter.
Currently, you can allow people you are not friends with to "subscribe" to your Facebook profile and see your public posts, but in the future, that feature will be referred to as "follow" instead.
"Today we are updating the term "Subscribe" to become "Follow" across the site, as we found it is a term that resonates better with people using the service,” a Facebook spokeswoman told The Times in an email.
The move changes Facebook's terminology to the same one used by many other social networks, including Facebook-owned Instagram.
Of course, the term "follow" was made famous by Twitter, Facebook's biggest rival in the social network market.
The company said the change will roll out slowly to all users over the coming weeks.
