Just started up a community page for hubbers called "What The Hub?" for really cool hubs that deserve to see more likes on Facebook!
Feel free to post your own or someone else's hub.
★★★ POSTING RULES ★★★
1. The posted item must be a hub, published at Hubpages.
2. Please like the page before posting.
3. The posted hub must be cool, witty, funny, interesting or weird and of interest to the general public (no historical, religious or informational hubs unless they are FUNNY or AWESOME). Recipe, poem, story and tutorial hubs are allowed if they are AMAZING and UNIQUE.
4. This page is moderated, so your post will appear as soon as the moderator checks your hub fits the rules.
You can read but not post if you are not a FB member.
If you are wondering how I check the FB posts, I visit an activity log on the page and it shows me who has posted what. I have a look and see if it is appealing to all and sundry and if it is, I change the status to public.
Hello Suzanne! I liked it! I saw your post on my group page If you haven't used scheduled posts, I think they will be of great advantage to you. I also have another great idea for hubbers who do use FB actively. For those of us with large, niche specific pages, we can share each others content. For example, I have a large animal lover's page (and blog). The page has about 5,800 fans. I don't know if any other hubbers have large fan pages- but that is a good idea! We all need a bit of SEO, and what better way to do it than with clean, non-spammed, social & blog networks? We're ALL writers with trusted accounts.
Well, now you've gone and done it Suzanne. I can see that I'm going to have to start using Facebook. I really do get a lot of Facebook likes on my Hubs – several thousand – but they've all come from 'the kindness of strangers.' Facebook is a great marketing tool for people who have time to play the game. The two big viral Hubs on HP in December earned thousands of dollars and it was all due to Facebook! Thanks for starting the page.
Thanks Writer Fox! I usually post at company pages and have received tons of likes that way, but when I'm on Facebook, I'd like to take a break from all the boring marketing and read something of value and use in what I am doing (ie Hubpages stuff).
It was easy! Though now I will need to be committed for awhile as page admin etc...... Other people might be interested in starting up niche pages, like an arts page, or a gardening page etc the same way. The idea came to me because the weird and funny hubs need a fair few likes and shares to get started, then they take off (that's what I've seen anyway).
Great FatFreddysCat! The idea for this page came to me when I was sorting through a heavy newsfeed full of informational, crappy and sales hubs and wished I had something a bit more exciting to comment on for the day. Here, I hope we can build a page which has stuff worth sharing around on Facebook and get the cool hubs some more likes and shares etc.
Thank you to all that have replied. If people "like" the main page, then you'll be able to see the new posts in your Facebook Home Page Feed. I'll be making sure the posts are weird, funny and interesting with no boring ones
Feel free to click "like" on anything or comment. I will be running some campaigns to get outsiders to enjoy our action too.
I have gotten this message too. However, I think it's because the moderator has to approve the entry before it shows up. I have just let mine sit and,usually within a few minutes it, has been accepted.
Hi everyone, unaware of this message. But I can see that people are trying to post their hubs multiple times, so I think that it is a Facebook glitch and even though it says it won't do it, it is sending it to me. Please post once and if your hub doesn't appear within the next 2 days, just email me from Hubpages with your post. I am receiving lots of hubs now, so I suggest it does work, just has the strange message on it.
UPDATE: I have amended the posting rules bit to indicate the weird message is normal.
I liked it! I'm a new Hubber here and will definitely write something that is worthy of posting on your FB page! I've only published 3 hubs so far and am looking to publish a few centered around the Memorial Day holiday for this weekend so I'll think about submitting one of those for you. Thanks!
This thread got messed up somehow. I keep getting "post not found" or some such. Thanks for the admin idea. I'm already overwhelmed by other "admin" on my plate. As an example, excepting for clicking the occasional Like, I've already pretty much given my own FB account a fond farewell; haven't followed anyone in months over there. Hopefully, you can find someone as equally cute and fuzzy as I am.
Yes you are cute and fuzzy! Just feel free to post weird and funny stuff at What The Hub and shovel a few likes on there as well (people from here seem to "like" when you like it too). I've scheduled in more for this week, seems putting them up 1-2 times a day is adequate as more than that seems too much for the audience. So I will work with that pattern.
Great idea, Suzanne! This is an excellent way for others who may not come up on our homepage feed to have their hubs read by us (and ideally make a nice profit from it too). Thanks for setting this up!
Well I could just buy heaps of likes, but that is not what I intend. I plan to run some campaigns on it to get the public on, but it will take time etc. as it is a slower process plus I've been busy working at nights as well as days.
Thanks for the heads up and promotion! You can promote your own or other's hubs as long as they are weird, funny or of interest to the public (but nothing too ordinary please).
Yes, if you want to become an admin and help me out with posting scheduled posts from the activity log, you can. Can you message me from Hubpages with your email address that you use for FB and I'll add you as admin? Cheers x
By the way, for everyone on this thread, I should probably mention that a polite way to do business in social media is to post your hub, like 5 hubs and then move on until next time. I notice lots of people enjoy posting, but they don't get the social media aspect of clicking the "like" button. If we all did this, all our WTH hubs would get more likes, which is how this type of thing runs well. You don't have to be precious with likes, Facebook won't penalise you! And it won't appear on your timeline.
WTH was created on a whim one evening and it's been a bit of fun. Joween has kindly volunteered to admin with me. We'll see how it goes for awhile, but if it ends up being a dead page (ie, I'm the only one liking stuff) then it will eventually be retired unless things turn around. You can't have a community with only one or two people doing the work....
I was planning to run some campaigns to get the public involved, but a dead looking page just scares them off, so unless activity picks up, I probably won't!
In other news, the WTH page on Google + is doing better, with more activity.
Hi Suzanne, some of the hubs put on here I have already read at hub pages so haven't bothered liking, but I should in future. Others I go to read the hub and leave a comment on HP but then don't return to Facebook...so forget to like there....duh. Despite this, I have still been liking some hubs.
Not a prob, Jodah. I think some people are new to Facebook and might not understand how things can work. On social media, you give love to people in order to receive it from other people (and both of these groups might be different people too). It's funny how it works but it does work
Hi I spent an hour researching online but no one seems to have the answer. On other sites I've been able to post my articles via URL on my Facebook FAN page with the picture, text popping up, but not HUB articles. No...

Since Google AdSense hasn't approved me, my hubs aren't earning anything from anywhere. I've been told that ads show up on my page but that they belong to hubpages and I won't get paid for those. I guess hubpages is...
