Spamming by Sharing

    Has anyone else been overloaded either here or on one of the FB groups by Hubbers who endlessly 'share' their own work?  After seeing the umpteenth 'share' on Facebook by the same writer, I finally blocked the person on that site. I hate doing it, but when the front page of a group has five or so posts by one person in a period of three days; it's overload.  And it's counter-productive.

    Thank you for letting me vent.  Thankfully, I won't have to see that person's posts now that I blocked them.  Sad.

      I meant, THANK YOU for letting me vent.  Or for tolerating it, at least!

    Unfortunately, I know exactly what you mean.  I've given up being members of groups for that reason.

    Too many people misunderstand the value of sharing and go overboard.

    Thank goodness for the option to leave groups and drop people from Facebook feeds!!

      I agree, Simone - I was looking for the 'like' button here, to affirm your post!

      Yes, I have left a few groups, and I am still in a few of them.  But I did indeed block someone who abuses the sharing thing.
