For your profile. This is big as it addresses the 5,000 friend limit for Profiles.
from the FB Blog:
Until now, it hasn’t been easy to choose exactly what you see in your News Feed. Maybe you don’t want to see every time your brother plays a game on Facebook, for example. Or maybe you’d like to see more stories from your best friends, and fewer from your coworkers.
You also couldn’t hear directly from people you’re interested in but don’t know personally—like journalists, artists and political figures.
With the Subscribe button, we’re making it easier to do both. In the next few days, you’ll start seeing this button on friends’ and others’ profiles. You can use it to:
- Choose what you see from people in News Feed
- Hear from people, even if you’re not friends
- Let people hear from you, even if you’re not friends

Technically the Subscribe for your Page is the LIKE Button. Here’s a difference between the two.
