I posted one of my hubs on Twitter yesterday and for the first time, I noticed that an image from the hub was immediately displayed. That has never been the case in the past.
Sadly, it was a once off! I find it a real nuisance having to find a photo on my computer every time I post a hub on twitter. If this function had worked properly in the past I think it would have been a good idea to retain the Twitter button. I also think more people would have used this function if the images had displayed properly. I wish someone would take a look at this getting this so that an image from the hub will display every time without us having to go hunting for one on our computers.
True, Sally. It is wonderful. Just, I also shared one of my hubs and it is showing an image from the article. Never seen before.
But, we have to copy the URL and then post it on twitter or on G+. They have removed the buttons long ago. I don't understand why.
Very nice but the image is only shown infrequently. In fact, so far, it has only happened once. I always copied the URL before like you so that I could add an image. Not always easy when you have to go hunting for one on your computer though.
True. It is somewhat irritating to search for images each time. It should catch automatically. But, who will fix it? Hub Pages or the Twitter people?
Perhaps there could be a collaborative effort! Many more people would use it if it worked correctly.
I think we all would. There would be no need to add a button. I have one on my google chrome browser. I just want the images to display every time I post a hub and that is fairly regularly:) Appreciate the support thanks, vocalcoach. So far I have had two images work correctly, that makes it two steps closer.
I don't keep the button for twitter. Already, I have one button for Pinterest and one for the Grammarly. So, I don't want more buttons on my browser. I am at ease by pasting the URLs whenever I want to share my content at G+ or Twitter.

A couple of weeks ago, I realized that I had not read the ToS about image use correctly and had to go back to all of my hubs and make sure the images were cited properly and were available through the creative...

Did HubPages provide an explanation regarding why you can no longer easily share a Hub on Twitter using a button on the Hub? Why did they replace it with Flipboard?

Don't know if this is the correct term, but my back button, arrow thingy, doesn't seem to be working for question/answer. It's also refused to work on a hub just now. It seems to work fine everywhere else. Have tried...

I'd like to know if the main image you use on your hubs affects either ranking or traffic. I know the thumbnail plays a huge role in YouTube videos but what about our hubs? Does it matter?

I have not used hubpages for around a year and have recently started to get back into it, I must admit that in the beginning I was a little Naive and posted images into my hubs willy nilly without thought of where they...

Okay, Hubpages. I was giving you all kinds of love because you have a track record of being sensitive to copyright issues. Because of that, I'd started posting my original photo essays here even though they make more...
