Yes it has...
The button is still there. It's just the counter that is gone.
I checked multiple subdomains.
Can anyone else confirm?
Note: yesterday, both the FB button and counter went AWOL. However, that was an FB snafu, not HP.
I love the internet...
The counter portion is on the Facebook end of things.
I just looked at one of your Hubs and it is showing the count.

If you upgrade to the current stable version of Chrome, do you still not see the counts?
If you are asking about the FB counter, it's been alive, well, and showing since yesterday.
If you are asking about the Pin It counter, it is still not showing. And I don't care enough about Pinterest to bother with a browser upgrade. I just thought HP would want to know. If it is a browser version issue, it still might be worth looking into. I have no idea what percentage of visiters drop by HP with the non-latest browser versions...
You replied to my post before I posted it! I'm going to have to keep an eye on you guys.
edit: On further thought, I think I went into a screen trance. No wonder my eyes hurt all the time...
Download f.lux, it's free, it helps, I no longer squint or wake up with headaches.
I'm doing some research to see what might be going on.
I just noticed that the Pin It counter was also missing on a non-HP site. That should help narrow things down.
The counting part is on their end.
I wonder if they disabled the feature due to traffic or something similar?
This certainly makes it look like a counter should work in some implementations:

Still doing research, but wanted to give you an update!
I dropped by squidoo (forgive me).

If you see the Pin It button, but not the counter, that would seem to be that. Not our problem. It confirms what you said that it's Pinterest. Could you delete the link when you are done? It makes me cringe.
Well, a half-hour, and no one else confirmed it. Never mind...

We added the Pinterest "Pin It" button to the small collection of popular social-sharing buttons at the top of Hubs on Thursday. Pinterest has rapidly become one of the largest social media traffic drivers to HubPages, already substantially larger than Twitter and Reddit. Maddie wrote a...

when I upload pictures to my hubs, the last several that I have uploaded only show broken links instead of the actual pictures. I already tried going in and re-uploading the pictures but I can't get it to work. anybody know what to do? I don't know if it's a website glitch or not?

I have 62 hubs and was getting about 500 views a day during good times, before Panda until they went down to 200.Then I started using the "Pin It" button in my Chrome bookmarks bar which allows you to pin every picture featured on a Hub (unlike the HP sidebar pin button which only pins...

I noticed tonight that the Flipboard share button is missing on all hubs. I checked a few niche sites and they are all missing. It doesn't matter if you're logged in or not. In addition, the problem I reported a few weeks ago with Pinterest banning ToughNickel is still not fixed.

Hi there,I'm not sure if this has been suggested before, but wanted to mention it.With the rising popularity of Google+ and the upcoming SEO refocus on social sharing and authorship, are Hub Pages considering adding Google+ +1 buttons and counts to hubs? I'm a big Google+ user and share my hubs...
