You can download this PDF, courtesy the Face book Public Figures page, to learn more about the new Subscribe option and how it differs from a regular Face book page. 
On a related note, Face book is using the standard RSS icon with the new Subscribe feature which is confusing because, technically, these aren’t really RSS feeds – you can’t get them in, say, Google Reader.

Why face book Recommends subscription button:
                    There is a lot more similarity between face books subscribe button and twitter but with one key difference ie if you follow someone on Twitter, you get to see all their shares whereas if you subscribe to someone on Face book, you only see stuff that they have specifically made 'public.'

                  Today, Facebook has added a new feature where they recommend you other public Facebook profiles to subscribe to and these recommendations are probably based on your existing subscriptions. Twitter too has a similar recommendation engine which offers suggestions based on who you are currently following.

The reason behind that twitter has to be worried because twitter just touched 100 million users while Facebook has a 750+ million user base and people spend more time on Facebook than any other site on the web. Twitter only recently added support for multimedia while Facebook does a far better job at rendering shared content with rich snippets and inline previews.
