Paying It Forward: The Effects of Sharing People's Articles on Social Media Networks
What Are You SHARING?
Have You Noticed This "SHARING" Phenomenon?
You may have recently noticed the phrase: "Thanks for SHARING" lately in Hubber's Comments lately. I am referring to the all-caps in the word SHARING. What is that all about?
Well, the idea came from Brett.Tesol in the recent Hub: "Do You Like to Share? Let's Help Everyone Get More Readers!"
Brett's Hub started off as a great idea that seems to be going viral on HubPages.
So what is this all about? Well, if you know Brett, than you will know that Brett likes to share Hubs. Whether in the Hub Feed, on Facebook or Twitter, Brett likes to share!
See, Brett understands that when you share other people's work, they just might share yours. And if you read Brett's Hub, you will get a very simple message: Pay It Forward!
- Select a few low score or outdated Hubs (or new Hubs) from people you follow.
- Comment on those Hubs. Be sure to leave insightful comments!
- SHARE the Hubs on your Social Media Network!
That is the first part of Brett's ingenious strategy. The next part illustrates how to let those followers know that you shared their article. How can we do that? Well, as Brett suggests, we should add to the bottom of our comment, the phrase:
"Thanks for SHARING!"
When the Hub author sees this, they will know that this article has been shared by the commentor and to keep it going, the author will in turn do the same for the commentor. He or she will go to a Hub of the person who left a comment and leave a comment on one or two of their Hubs, and will leave the same message at the bottom of the comment once they have SHARED in their own network.
So that is what all the "SHARING" chatter is about. Make sure to read Brett's Hub from the link above. I urge you to jump on the bandwagon and start "Paying it Forward"! We have nothing to loose by sharing great articles and the HubPages community becomes tighter and more accessible when we all lend a helping hand. Let's face it, we can all use the traffic and what better way to gain traffic than to help out our friends and colleagues? SHARE something today!
Here's to you Brett! Cheers and Bottoms Up!
