The feed has been my number one way to get update on new hubs and has been a very useful feature! But now it is "spammed" by people who "share" every single thing they do on hubpages without any consideration of what it will do to the followers. I know I can unfollow these people but is that the only way?
The same hub can also occur several times on the feed even if the hub isn't shared and to get pass all those unnecessary updates I have to constantly click "show more". I am grateful for suggestions and also want to know if anyone else have the same problem!
I know what you mean, thougtforce. I love discovering new hubs through the feed, but I agree that it’s full of the same hubs or the same people’s activities showing multiple times. I’ve just been clicking “Show more” all the time, but I wonder if perhaps there should be a limit on how many items a person can share each day.
I was under the impression that these appear automatically without anyone sharing them. For instance, every time I comment on a hub or forum post it shows up on my feed. But I haven't done anything.
I'm still fumbling around with it, but click home to go to feed, and then click filter. Apparently we do have some control. But as to whether it's output, input, or both; the mystery continues.
I think (although I may be wrong) that one of the things that the OP is concerned about is the fact that some people send lots of extra items to their follower's feed by “sharing” information that wouldn’t normally appear in that particular feed.
I have found that it is driving me nuts when I want to read a hub posted by someone I haven't seen in awhile. I finally gave up on the "feed" and went back to emails or searching the long way.
Thanks all, for your answers! And I don´t mean the automatic notification that turns up when someone comment or publish a new hub. It is the sharing with all followers that many hubbers use seemingly for everything they do at hubpages that becomes almost like spamming. Sharing something you think could interest your followers is one thing, but sharing every move is something different. And besides that, the feed has changed, so a popular hub can be shown many times, which takes up space in the feed. I want to use the feed to see new hubs and not the same hub several times. I have also tried the filter, but without result so far.
Maybe it is better to give up the feed!

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've noticed a lot of people share their own hubs, is there a particular reason for this? Or is it just trying to revive a hubs traffic that has fallen/extra traffic?

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 didn't think this was allowed and it is rather annoying spamming a link to one article every couple hours.

I would love to see a feature that Hubbers could explain - in say, maybe 100 characters? - why they are sharing a particular Hub with their followers. I just shared a Hub but would love to have been able to tell people...
