The Hub phenomenon is rapidly gaining grounds. The potential for growth is massive.
To take this further, can the Admins add a new element to hubpages, called ‘hubanswers’ (just like yahoo answers) where Internet users can ask real questions to real people (hubbers) to get specific answers to their concerns? That way the whole Hub experience becomes much more interactive, targeted and not unidirectional..
I think it would change the direction. And be a distraction.
If people were to submit questions for others to thoughtfully research and publish a hub it would be a different matter. Because then it's real content, rather than instant answers.
the forum covers both those points, you can ask questions here for instant answers and hub readers could use the forums to submit ideas for hubs.......jimmy
I did not suggest that the answers had to be instant.
This is just a suggestion which could be built on and in the end provide a better user experience.
I do not think it will neither be a distraction nor a change in direction, but rather an addition providing with specific information.
When I first stumbled on hubpages, I was looking for information on a specific topic and a related hub post happened to be on the first page of google search results. Although the post did not address my concern specifically, I was impressed with the quality of its content and joined hubbing.

I'm planning an advice hub where somehow or other people will ask advice - the advice will be wacky - I think it would be great if I could get one or two other hubbers to also contribute their advice (on the same...

I have had many personal requests that stem from this feature. Sometimes I am not sure what the person is asking because I'm not sure what hub they came from.A question that just says "my reptile," doesn't...
