    Whenever I share a link on FB it is not shared. What's the reason? Pinning to Pinterest is showing up on FB but not the direct sharing on FB. It is quite confusing.

      Are you getting a confirmation that the Hub is shared when you share it? Is it that the Hub isn't appearing in your Feed, or is it not appearing on your Profile either?
      Have you tried sharing your Hubs in a different browser?

    Sorry to reply you a little late. Neither in my feed nor on my profile the FB sharing is appearing. It increases the number of liking while I share but on FB nothing appears.

    I have not tried in a different browser. I always work in Google Chrome. Earlier there was no problem but for the last one month I am facing this difficulty.

      Are you referring to your feed and profile on HubPages not showing posts you made to Facebook?

      There is no mechanism to show your Facebook activity on HubPages.
      I looked at your Facebook profile and see that you did post one Hub on your wall/timeline ( … -New-Level)

      I just tested Facebook connectivity by using the social media buttons on your Hub to "like" a Hub on Facebook. I used the same operating system and browser you are using.

      It posted fine to my Facebook timeline including a thumbnail.

      Occasionally, it seems Facebook does not show thumbnail images for shared links and this affects all sites, not just HubPages.
      It seems to be due to high traffic volume times.
      In these situations, posting the exact same link using the same method will result in an image showing if "liked" at a different time (later when traffic is lower on Facebook)

      The screenshot below shows the resulting post on Facebook.

        The link you mentioned about which I posted a day ago was posted by me through copy and paste method.
        I am not very technically sound so it is quite possible that may be I am unable to explain the problem. I am talking about the sharing I make from HP to FB. It does not appear on FB timeline as well as homepage. Today also I tried to share a hubber's hub and it appeared on my activity box but in the timeline or homepage.
        Today I also faced problem in pinning a hubber's hub. The moment I try yo pin on the Pinterest the board name changes and another box comes up asking to write about the pin. It is completely confusing. Earlier after pinning thr shared box appeared but today it didn't.
        I am really unable to understand.

          You can share a Hub to Facebook via the "like" button on the Hub.
          I just tested once again and it is showing on my Facebook timeline as it was earlier today.

          Make sure you have your Facebook account linked to your HubPages profile here:

            Whatever you mentioned exactly the same way I am doing it. Even I checked the connected link, it is very much connected as I opened the link there is one button which says disassociate with FB if you want.
            Kindly see the matter how to rectify it and I will be grateful if you check the Pinterest problem too. I tried once again to pin but totally in vain.

              I'm not inclined to think there is an issue with HubPages as I was unable to reproduce the issue using the same browser and operating system you are using.  I tried it multiple times and each time it worked.
              You may want to try a different browser, like Firefox, and/or clear your browser cache.  It may even help to restart your computer.
