Facebook just made life easier for lurkers and stalkers!

Finally! Facebook answers that age-old conundrum — What if I DON’T WANT to “friend” those jerks from high school?! — with the introduction of the Subscribe button.

Today’s Subscribe button announcement follows Tuesday’s official launch of Facebook’s greatly-improved Smart Lists, which allows you to sort Close Friends (people you want to hear from all the time) and Acquaintances (people you hear from when they change profile info such as where they live or if they’re “expecting”).

About Ryan Almodovar

Ryan Almodovar was born in Queens, NY, but was transplanted to Lancaster, PA – the heart of Amish country, at an early age. Growing up in a small city that is completely surrounded by fields has let him develop many interests, including jazz music, songwriting, short stories, and exploring the vast farmlands – simply because there wasn’t too much else to do there. A love of writing, thinking outside the box, and his Puerto Rican culture led him to a bachelor’s degree in Economics with a minor in Spanish from the Millersville University of Pennsylvania. Currently, Ryan is a mild-mannered banker during the day, and though he may claim to fight crime at night, you are most likely to find him relaxing by playing guitar, watching baseball games, or working on a novel that never seems to get finished. You can read more of Ryan’s work at his blog, Awkward and Dangerous.
