    Hi, all,

    I've been writing here for some time and can remember a time when there was a sliding social media gadget that offered a "count" of FB likes, Pinterest posts and all that on the hubs. I noticed the gadget is still there but no longer offers a count. Just wondering what the thinking might be behind removing the numbers?

    Thanks!

      It was slowing down the page load to wait for the statistics from social sites, so HP removed them.

        Very interesting and totally makes sense. Thanks for the insight. I just read two of your hubs and am going back to read more!

    Also, Google downgrades websites that have longer loading times, so HP is working hard to have a high pagerank, which is good for all of us.
