Facebook Testing Follow Button On Pages?

FollowButtonPagesIs Facebook experimenting with a follow button on pages? Reader Matteo Gamba of Wimdu shared the screenshot above, in which the Wimdu Facebook page featured a follow button directly to the left of the like button.

The follow button did not appear when we accessed the Wimdu Facebook page, and it was unclear what the ramifications would be for advertising, marketing, analytics, and insights if Facebook users are given the option to follow pages, rather than liking them.

Readers: Have you ever seen follow buttons on pages?
