Have People Found Greater Success With Automatically Generated Hub Summaries or Manually Writen Ones


I have a lot of 'A' symbols next to my articles in my Account overview, this is because I haven't done a Summary for the hub it corresponds to, Hubpages explains that in the absence of a summary from the user, it will automatically generate one for you. My Question is, do people find it neccasary to do your own summary, is it worth it? considering it does take time in itself or is it better to just let HP do it for you, or are the summaries that HP produce good but not good enough?

    Thanks for the length tip. I hadn't thought about that regarding social network sites. Now I'm going to have to look at my old summaries and make sure they're not too long!

    I would like to see the system generate a summary that I could then edit. And not just the first 140 characters of my article. Generally speaking, having worked with computers I trust myself better when writing, but computers more when counting.

    It takes your first few sentences of your hub. If it's catchy like a fark then that would be good enough.
