Boy, this is a jolt! When I click on a new Hub to read, I get this loud video that plays, and it isn't the one the Hubber imbedded. It's an advertisement. I know we can't control these ads, but it's very distracting , and I just want to hurry and X out! How do you feel about this???
My other concern with these is that some of them have a 'roll over me' indicator - does this constitute a click - if so, I've seen these on my own Hubs am I in danger of 'fraudulent clicking' by accident!
I'm going to start a log on when this happens. Thanks for the warning about the "roll over me" thing. I won't do that! It's bad enough when we have "pop-ups" that force us to watch something on our computers, but this is just TOO much.
Got up early so I could read some Hubs, and the first two I tried to read had this annoying video advertising "something". It's SO distracting.
I know! And this sort of ad trick is going around on other sites as well. I hope I don't end up getting into trouble when I click on my own hub to check out the comments and accidently click the ad.

Is anyone making their own videos for hubs?I am almost done making my first one from scratch. I was wondering if other people have ventured down this road. It is pretty time consuming.
