@marytrimble, I think the difference lies in your page category. If you are a person (personal page), people can subscribe to your updates. Like this, they can see your public posts even if you didn’t ‘friend’ them.
If you are a (company) page, people can ‘like’ you. There is no subscribe option since it wouldn’t make sense. Like = subscription to updates
Subscribe is the ‘like’ button for people profiles. Like is the ‘subscribe’ button for pages. I hope this makes sense…
