What are your thoughts on "Shout-Out" Hubs?


Shout-Out Hubs are what I call articles that primarily exist to thank followers, fans, and friends for their support on HubPages. What are your thoughts of these? Are they simply nice gestures, or are they against the spirit of Hubs, which are supposed to be more informative than personal?

    Thanks Tim. I've seen some prominent Hubbers employ these, and it always surprises me a bit that they're featured. Makes me wonder if a Shout-Out Hub about non-Hubbers would be less favored by HP (though I have no intention of making one).

    Agreed, I don't plan on ever making one. They're sweet but just don't have much to offer most people because of how personalized they are.

    My thoughts exactly, there are better ways for showing gratitude on HP. I always get taken back when I see a successful Hubber write an entire article that's just a list of Hubbers they happen to know.
