    How important does everyone think it is to share our articles on social media as far as revenue and exposure? Any input or advice? Thanks.

      My Google traffic has always been negligible so over the past year or two I've had to seek out views via other means. I've done the best with Facebook. I belong to a lot of Facebook groups devoted to the topics I write about (mainly music and movies) and I snag a fair share of eyeballs through those. Not every Hub is a hit but I can usually count on at least a few dozen pity views per post, haha. I also belong to a number of forums/message boards about the same topics and pimp my stuff on those. Some of my movie related hubs have done pretty well thanks to the message boards on IMDb.

      Some folks around here do very well attracting views via Pinterest, but I've never had much luck with it - I still Pin my stuff there, but rarely see much traffic from it.

      I've only recently started messing with Tumblr, and I haven't been at it long enough to decide if it's worth the trouble.

      There are various Facebook and Google+ groups specifically for sharing hubs on, which I do from time to time. I get a lot more traffic via Pinterest though than any of those, but they all help with exposure though traffic directly via social media doesn't count as far as HubPages is concerned, only that via search engines such as Google, Bing, Yahoo etc.

      I think it depends on how closely your FB friends are aligned to your target audience. I never post on FB, at least not yet, though I might through groups related to the topic of particular hubs.

    I tried Twitter a few years ago. That didn't go anywhere, lol.
