I just published my latest and when I shared it with twitter it was fine, but when I copied and pasted the url to facebook it brought something up completely different! But only the 'front page' so to speak. when it was clicked on my hub came up.
But being completely puzzled I copied the false page writing and to my surprise found it was someone else's hub, similar interest! not sure if it will sort itself out? thanks.
My latest was an Outlander hub.
Did you go back into after you hit Publish and before you shared the URL on FB?
Unless you hit the FB button, as you do Twitter, you'll have to close it, reopen, then copy the URL. Otherwise, the URL will show /done at the end (or whatever it says when you first hit Publish).
This usually occurs when a Hub is shared while it is pending evaluation by the QAP.
You can fix it after it is published, but can avoid the issue if you wait until a Hub has passed the QAP and is published before you share it.
The FAQ talks about this as well.
From the FAQ
Be aware that Facebook and other sites cache the state of a URL when it is first shared. You should share a Hub on social media (Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, etc.) or via email only once it has been evaluated by the site QAP and featured. If you share a URL while it is pending evaluation then sites like Facebook cannot view the Hub and will cache the state of the Hub when it was shared. You can see the status of all of your Hubs in My Account.
If you would like to check or fix the way a link shows on Facebook you can use the Facebook debugger tool.
That happened to me as well Nell. Last night I copied the url of two of my hubs to share on FB and Google+ and someone elses hub showed up.....luckily I checked it and didn't hit post. Did them again and it was ok, with my own hubs showing up.
lol! seems we are both losing it Jodah! I never did that before!

I think it would be useful to have a column added to the statistics page that shows the total number of shares for each hub (Tweets and Facebook likes). There is not enough room to add two columns. So this could be a...

Just wondering if it is spamming to submit your hubs to the same social networking sites more than once? For example, if you wait a week or so between and you are trying to get your hub more traffic can you submit it...

My feed is full of "shares" by a Hubber. HP recommends we do not share our own Hubs too frequently, why can't that apply to multiple sharings by the same Hubber for other Hubs. I don't think they...

I've never had a hub go viral, so I have no idea what I'm talking about. All that qualifies me is that I regularly share and read "viral" material. As we look at alternatives to Google for traffic,...

I didn't think this was allowed and it is rather annoying spamming a link to one article every couple hours.

I think there should be a daily limit on sharing. Some hubbers go overboard with the button! I find it frustrating having to work through shared hubs just to locate newer content. Sharing is a nice gesture and should...
