"Share with followers"

    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?  hmm

    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.
