Hub-Sharing ButtonTakes Too Long

    Is it just me or are others finding that it takes too much time for the green 'share' to respond?  Sometimes I have to click 2 or 3 times.

      I haven't noticed a problem Audrey.

      Yes, it takes forever to turn green it seems to me!  I keep waiting patiently and almost give up and sometimes click it twice and then it finally turns green.  It has never done that before in the past, so maybe all of the influx of writers from Squidoo are slowing down the system possibly?

      Yep, me too.  Slow, and takes two or three clicks.

      It could be a system resource or network connectivity issue.
      Can you see if your system CPU or RAM is maxed out?

      Do you see the same thing in another browser like Firefox or Chrome or is it isolated to Safari?

    No problem for me either. Maybe your computer doesn't like cookies.

    Thanks David and Jodah. Obviously it's my computer. Good to know that others aren't having this problem.

    That has happened to me also recently.  I shared one I had updated today and I wasn't sure it worked, but I think it did because I then saw a comment from one of my followers.  I clicked it twice and hope it wasn't shared twice!  Sorry if it did.

    I just click it and slowly count to 3.

    My share button is slow, too. I only click once and wait. I takes about 5 seconds or so.

    I've been having the same problem.  At first I thought it wasn't working then I realized it's just very slow.

      I have to click it about five times for it to work, sometimes it doesn't and i give up, only to find that it had actually shared the hub but didn't say!

        Click the share button first, write your comment, then hover over the button for starting your Internet. It will show two boxes, one being the share tab, click on that and it will return. It should be ready to share now.

    It took about forty seconds for me, which isn't really that long, but it seems like an eternity now that most internet things are done instantly.

    I never know if the hub was successfully shared.  The pop up box keeps asking if I want to continue and I don't want to keep clicking continue.  Are others still having this problem?  It makes sharing hubs an interesting experience because I don't see any kind of confirmation.

      I just tested sharing Hubs with my followers and it seems to work.
      It takes a few seconds from when you click Share to it showing "Shared!" but it is working properly in my testing.

        Matthew - the site itself seems to be slow to load, too.  I used Chrome and Safari, BTW.  I think I saw a reference to it being slow on Google Analytics, too (or somewhere there). 

        Thanks for hanging in here on New Year's Eve, by the way - stay safe, and have a great 2015!

          I have noticed that there are some new video ads (Sekindo) that may be having an impact on the site responsiveness and have passed this information on your our ad and engineering team to see if there is any issue we need to address.

          Happy New Years! smile

            Glad you passed it along - I just now shared a hub & I agree with the OP - it took too long to load & share.  This was on Chrome, if that helps.

            You're the best, Matthew - as always!

              To which of the sharing buttons are you referring?
              H+, FB, etc?

                To H+  - it was very slow.

                  I just tested using Forefox 34.0.5 and it took less that 1 second for the H+ button to bring up the share dialog and about 1.5 seconds for it to show as shared once I clicked the "share" button in that dialog.

    vocalcoach,
    I just click Share and count to 5 or 6, it usually turns green within that time.

    Slow for me as well.  There is definitely a noticeable hesitation.
