Are we allowed to use the 'share on FB or to followers' buttons to promote our own Hubs? Sometimes, I publish late at night, and by the time the next day rolls around, the original new hub auto-posting is buried past the bottom of the page....
I am not sure about the follower's button, but I do use the Facebook button to promote my own material. Sometimes I simply go to Facebook and post as well.
I reckon we are "allowed" to do it, but I could be wrong. I know, it is hard to believe that I, a Virgo, could be wrong, but I have been wrong once or twice......... just today, lol.
We are technically not supposed to promote our own hubs with the sharing button. We are to share other hubs, but people hope that it will encourage further sharing.by everyone. Several hubs have been written on the sharing topic.
Well, doggone it, anyhow! Then how do I show a Hub that got buried by the next day? I'm a night owl...and apparently that is not a good time to publish...
Lizzy, yes you can share your own hub to your followers, however a message will pop up warning you that it is not recommended that you do it regularly (I've done it twice and got the message each time, but I did it on hubs I updated). It is allowed however, and I assume it's for the exact reason you are talking about.
PS congrats on that lovely 100 hubscore!!
If we do a share with followers, does it go on the home page? I don't see shares there anymore. I did a share of a follower's hub, and never saw it on the home feed.
I haven't been seeing them either. In fact I haven't been seeing my new hubs after I publish them on the feed. Quite strange. I wonder if it has anything to do with the new layout. It's been really glitchy since it went site wide.
I'm glad you noticed it too. Thanks for responding. I guess it must be the new layout. I was just starting to share. Oh well!
Ah, ok, then. Thanks, Daughter of Maat... Much appreciated... ;-)

I think it would be useful to have a column added to the statistics page that shows the total number of shares for each hub (Tweets and Facebook likes). There is not enough room to add two columns. So this could be a...

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

The social network share button in hubs is too small for people to notice.I feel that if it is made larger more people can like/share our hubs,given they like it.

I'm thinking if we post all our Hubs on Google+, it would be a good way to "archive" them. Is this a good idea or a very bad one??

I don't get into these fights and disagreements with what HP does on a regular basis. But I looked at my Hubs and I only saw the four sites; Flipboard, Pinterest, Facebook and email in my share icons over the past week...

My feed is full of "shares" by a Hubber. HP recommends we do not share our own Hubs too frequently, why can't that apply to multiple sharings by the same Hubber for other Hubs. I don't think they...
