New profile facelift's are here

The hubpages profile has been completely revamped, and there's loads of cool looking goodies on the new one that's soon to be rolling out. This news comes straight from the hubpages blog, where Hubpages Elite Simone Smith gets into the details as to what its all going to be about.

Its quite a spectacular addition to our whole new hubville here, and all of us are soon to be seeing this awesome new upgrade, and we all will get the chance to make the official transition very soon.

For those recent new comers to hubpages, it may come to them as a shock, but to those hubpages veterans who've been here for a long time, and have been experiencing many of the changes all along, they're much more use to this sort of thing occurring from time to time.

Heck! the hubpages team of staff members are full of awesome surprises for us all, which makes it super fun and exciting to be a writer here today. We all need to thank them for working so hard on it all, and for making us writers on hubpages stand out.

Thanks from all of us to you, and I will write a special thank you hub for all of your efforts, for I know you did for us all as well as for the sake of hubpages to keep up and be much better in this new age of online everything.




Another look at the all new! Hubpages profile, link to it below

Costumizable Background

We will now have the ability to change our profile's background into a more custom designed look and feel.

This is something that may be a wowing experience for those folks who are more creatively tech savvy with background photo's or images, and when it comes to fully editing original images they prepare for graphical implementation. Follow link below to learn more....

The changes are in stay tuned!

I recently joined hubpages about 11 months ago, and its been an amazing adventure into writing thus far, and so I'm so pumped up to finally get my hubpages profile officially pimped out!

There are many cool sections of this new profile to come, which highlights all of our hub performances here, hubtivity, fan area's, and many of them are so digitally beefed up its intense.

Its going to make it hard for many of us to resist playing with at first I'm sure, and we may even fall in love with its super attractive appearance, let alone once the more visually talented folks get their slimy fingers all over it, in their illustrious already fun packed hubpages accounts.

Once you've made the switch you won't wanna go back to the old hubpages profile, and no matter if you will lose much of the links you've placed onto it. There is many new options to choose from to share much of your networking actions though for sure.



This is the new 'Featured Hub' section, & we select which hubs

"We" refers to all hubpages account owners, basically we all will be able to select our very own favorite hubs, we like to add to our hubpages profile, which shows up on the new 'Featured Hub' section shown up above.

Awesome functionality

When you choose to click on these cool new optional links, the screen of your hubs contents transitions to whatever info you click on. These new changes are sure to give us all maximum exposure to the online world of web surfers, making it the most awesome update hubpages has ever done thus far.

Other things to consider will be our social profile feeds, such as FB, Pinterest, Google+, and Linkedin, which all can be loaded onto this new hubpages profile, and can send folks externally to them as outbound links. This is a awesome new treat for us hubbers, thanks once again to the Hubpages Staff & awesome Hubpages web developers.

New options and totally new beautifully attractive sections

Each section of the new profile is also set out to be much more interactive for the visitors of our profiles, making it impossible for us all not to stand out. Our hubs are being placed as the focal point of the profile starting out when the profile page first loads, with a cool area now titled My Content. We also have the options to place our most favorite hubs at the forefront and center of its page area as part of a cool new Featured Hub section, which auto scrolls across the screen.

Then there's the accolades area towards the right of the screen, which is very much the same in appearance as our current profile now, but its background is all white, which brings out the importance of its appearance if you utilize a contrasting darker profile background (The background is fully customizable ).

Directly under the accolades area, which is also on the far right of the screen is the optional area to switch your profiles contents to reveal actual hubtivity, following, followers, fan mail, and recent images that you either loaded onto your my account section, or in a new hub you've created recently, or else where on the hubpages network.

I love the idea of being able to select the featured hub and I enjoyed your review of the new features we'll soon be seeing on our profile pages.

Thanks for sharing this info. I knew changes have been in the works for quite some time but didn't know what they would be in the final version.

Voted up, useful, beautiful and interesting.

Dear Mike,

As someone who doesn't follow the forums too much, I truly appreciated this helpful tutorial on the upcoming changes to our profiles.

I can absolutely see you as a university professor... as you have just taught us beautifully. Your voice is fabulous, understandable and engaging. The work you put into this hub is most evident.

Thanks for the great preview, CloudExplorer! It's nice to have an advanced scout like you helping us out through your reconnoitering maneuvers. Yes, I'm looking forward to this new and dynamic profile page. It's already got my head spinning with possibilities!

I was blessed to stop by and read this very interesting article. Voted up, awesome, interesting, and useful! Shared as well!


CloudExplorer profile image

CloudExplorer 4 years ago from New York City Author

No doubt Ash, I seen the initial new profile updates in May as well, and back then I thought to make a hub about it, but there wasn't enough info on it all, it was just a prototype of what it actually has become today.

So, I simply quit the idea, but then yesterday night I visited the hubpages forum by chance, and walla there it was Simone Smith created a cool forum posting that lead to the hubpages blog, and I located the cool new profile from there from off a few of the new Staff profiles there.

I just had to write this after I seen it, and so there ya go, my path to least resistance to a brighter new hubpages profile, and the inspiration to write it was the beauty of them.

Well it is important for us to try and share it all for greater visibility you know, maybe they wanted to see who would give writing a hub about it all a try. Who knows, I'm just happy to be getting the new facelift, hehe!

hanks again for sharing @Lathing.

Hey there @Tina Truelove, now that's one cool screen name, nice I see you have a way with utilizing cool names. I'm definitely going to give your hubs a try as well, I'm assuming your creativity is pretty high as well when it comes to hubbing.

Who are the "WE" who select the hubs you speak of above?


CloudExplorer profile image

CloudExplorer 4 years ago from New York City Author

@Lady Guinevere

Oh sorry about that, "We" up there, refers to all of us hubpages account owners, meaning the owner of a given Hubpages account, will be able to select which hub to feature on that cool new section on their own hubpages profile, which is now known as "Featured Hub".

I so wish it was just pressing a button and everything happens automatically. I'm probably gonna make more of a mess than good. lol I don't even know if I have the courage to try. Really me and technology. lol Perhaps if I view your video at least a dozen times.

The new HubPages profiles look good, but if I read the comments beneath the HubPages blog post correctly it seems some are saying we will no longet be able to link to our own sites or own blogs from our profile page. I hope this isn't so.


CloudExplorer profile image

CloudExplorer 4 years ago from New York City Author

Thanks @Gypsy for the awesome comment up above, you'll figure it out for sure.

Hello @Teresa Schultz, you can add your links to social profiles on the new hubpages profile, and your allowed up to one official blog or website link, which ever you prefer.

The social links are set to FB, G+, Pinterest, Linkedin, and Twitter, so those are the only networks we can share our social profiles from.

@mary615, I am too Mary, but like you when I seen how beautiful these profiles appeared to me, I was blown away and had to even write this hub and a few others about it all, besides being so anxious to upgrade, which I recently done like 2 or 3 days back.

Thanks for the cool comment, and I'll try my best to pay you a visit soon as well.
