Unlike other "social networking" sites, getting fans is not the point on HubPages.
The point is to write quality content that people want to read, and that pulls in search engine traffic.
The number of fans one has here is irrelevant to their success - you want people using Search Engines to find the high quality written content that you provide!
I would recommend cruising around the forums and seeing what other successful hubbers have been doing...
Good luck on HubPages !
