I don't know if this is a problem with fake traffic (I know that there were reports of fake Facebook traffic last year) or if the social buttons aren't updating correctly.
Last week my pregnancy myths hub got a few hundred Facebook visits. It still only shows 9 likes though!
Today, my canker sores hub has nearly 100 visits from Pinterest and only 2 pins.
Just wondering if anyone else is experiencing social traffic discrepancies or knows about this?
Edit: Note that these are not Editor's Choice and I do not have Editor's Choice enabled on my account, so that's not the reason.
I have lately noticed that my number of friends does not increase at all, although I have added several friends I met on a workshop, so I knew them?
Facebook is having major issues right now, so my guess is that this is related as the numbers come from their system.
It looks like they are claiming to have addressed the issue, but it usually takes hours or longer for them to catch up.

Thanks Matthew. Guess Pinterest is having issues too? I'll keep an eye on it.
I am not aware of specific Pinterest issues.
I would anticipate that most of the Facebook issues have subsided as it appeared to be up and working later in the day.
If you are still having issues, please share as many specific details as you can and I can see if I can help.
Matthew, this hub has gotten 33 pins from my Pinterest account today, but the counter still says 3: http://wrylilt.hubpages.com/hub/Pain-Re … r-Remedies
My understanding is that we get the button and counts from Pinterest. I tested Pinning that Hub and it didn't seem like it was incrementing the counter, but then it went from 7 to 10 and showed all my Pins.
This seems to match up with the number of times that it shows as pinned here, including my three test Pins.
Strange. This pin has 41 repins coming from that hub: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/104497653827528031/
I think what Pinterest may be tracking is the image/URL combination.
This image and the one on it now that I pinned in my test are different.
The link you just provided illustrates this as well.
See the section that is titled "other pins from..." in the right column under the "follow Board" button and notice the different images, that Pinterest is showing as other Pins.
