I missed something. I attempted to email a hub to a friend that's outside of HubPages, but I ran into a problem. The link for sharing has turned into "Share with followers," and doesn't allow for emailing to outsiders. Does that option still exist somewhere else?
It has been removed by staff due to absue issues. Share with followers means that the hub will appear on the HubPages feed.
What do you mean by "Hubpages feed" here? and
What is the benefit of sharing with followers?
Here is the link to the feed, which is where the shared hub will appear - in the followers' feed. So if they are tuned into the feed, they will notice the story.
Thanks Website Examiner, but I don't understand how one could abuse the link. But at least I understand how the new link works.
A member of staff reported they had a serious abuse issue. After all, people were using HubPages to send out emails to whomever, which makes HubPages in a sense responsible for any misuse that might occur. Someone wanted to send out mass mails to social networks, for example.
FF, here is a link to a forum post http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/60586
I guess some people were sending spam mail, etc.

Trying to see if I understand this correctly. The trackers only work from outside of HP, correct? So if I have a new affiliate tracker on my profile page or in a hub, it's worthless to me, right? And if I link from one...

For the last several days if I wish to share a good hub from a HP author with my followers, it won't do it for some reason. Is anyone else having this problem?

While I understand that hubbers might occasionally want to share some of their own hubs with their followers, it can be frustrating to see multiple 'old' hubs shared by their owner when looking at the 'feed'. I'd...

Hey Hubpages Staff,I've been a member for 15 months now and have been told countless times that "Share with Followers" is NOT to be used by the author of a hub.Then why is it that the FEED is loaded with...
