I was just wondering about the facebook and twitter like buttons in our hubs. If someone likes your hub at either site, and clicks one of those buttons, what happens? Do you have to be signed in to one of those social networks for a like to be counted? How does it work? And, what is Pin it?
Pin it is Pinterest.... you can Google the site. In order for someone to use the Twitter or Facebook option, they need to have an account. When they like it or share it, it shows on their Twitter feed and/or Facebook feed. The count is from who clicks the like. So if five like it on Facebook, you will see the number "5" showing there next to the Facebook button. The same for the Twitter and Pinterest buttons.
