What happens when I click "Share with followers"?

    When I click on it, it just says "Hub shared!". But what happens with the hub? Where does it show up for my followers? How did I share it?

    I never noticed that before.

    It can't be that it just adds it to the stuff that gets send out in email, because that happens automatically, I think.

    I think I'd be leery of that one until we know what it does. I don't want to be annoying people with extra notifications!

    I can't find anything in the learning center that addresses it. The intent may be that if I read YOUR hub, I can share it with MY followers and that clicking it on your own hub is meaningless?

      Yes, exactly. I want to know what I'm doing smile



      That sounds reasonable really. But HubPages should indeed have documentation on this so we know what happens and how we can/should use it.

    I think it means that all the naked pictures on your desktop are emailed to everyone you know! smile

      So did you get the ones we sent?

    your followers get an email notification that you have published a new hub.

      No, they get that anyway.

        Doesn't it go there anyway and automatically?

          nope, as far as I am concerned.

            I think it does. That's the email we get every morning about 'New hubs by your favorite authors".  I don't think you have to do anything but hit Publish for it to be in that.

              Well, not sure.

              But one thing for sure is that you can share again if you wish. I mean you can re-share using that option. Many a times I get notification about a much older hub that means the author has shared the hub again. First time after being published the hubs may be shared automatically but for sharing again you can certainly use share with followers option. At least new followers get notified then if not including the ones that have been notified already.

    it publishes to the hubfeed

      I think feed update is automated, it appears even if you don't share. not?

        sure - hubs publish to the feed when they are brand new and just published , they also share to the feed when you hit the share with followers button

        might be good to notify followers when you make an update or edit


        and yes, if you share another hubbers hub it will show up in your feed for your followers to see.


        its all about the feed (   .   )

    For the heck of it, I just did that on an older hub I have recently updated.

    I do not see it in http://hubpages.com/feed.  Not yet, anyway.

    i think thats somehow related to the same issue that has stalled hubtivity for the last 8 hours.

    there is no question about what the share with followers feature does.

      I'm sure that's it, though everything else is showing up there.

      Didn't somebody get upset with you a few months back because you had updated something and pushed it to the feed?  A "follower" who apparently didnt really want to know anything? I forget the details, but it seemed very silly of them.
