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.

Dear staff, is there anything that can be done to the feed where I can choose not to receive notice of hubs shared by other hubbers? There are people who share every hub they read. If I want to read a hub or follow...

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...

I am currently testing out the new video feature with my latest hub. When I tried to share on Google+, the screen was partially blocked by my video and would not let me write a comment and share with my followers. I was...

Okay, so I had the habit of using the share button to routinely share my new or even some of my old hubs with my followers. Well, when I tried to share my last one, I got a warning, I don't quite remember the...
