Rumbling,

I haven't yet added my HP feed to FB because I was thinking that I actually want people to visit the HP site to click on ads...I have another blog that goes to FB now, and it seems to have shrunk my traffic to the actual blog. Am I mistaken? Am I thinking incorrectly? Please let me know your experience.

Thank you.

Leslie

broussardleslie,

I think it depends on your your feed settings , if you are showing the full feed then people have no need of going to your blog to read the post. But with HubPages it is different. It only shows a summary of your hub in the feed so if someone want to read your full hub then they have to come to your Hub. Does this answer your question ?
