Here's another way to look at this.

When I subscribe to a page, I expect to get updates on new postings.

Because Facebook is using their EdgeRank to filter out those postings, I'm no longer get updates on all the postings. As such I've to go to the subscribed page manually.

No wonder I'm getting so few updates lately. Because Facebook is filtering out everything. How backwards is that?

Go to your profile, find the list of things you like.

https://www.facebook.com/[user ID or name]/favorites

Tell me, do you want to receive updates on all of 0.5k things you liked? Because if each of them writes even one post a week, you can forget about ever reading things from your family and friends. And the latter is what Facebook was designed for.
