No you are not alone. This has been an ongoing issue for me. Some people just don't think about what they are doing I supposed. I Unfollowed all topics so my feed was empty and am adding them back one by one. I don't want to do that though. We need a solution to the problem.
"She," is also relatively new, compared to most of us....She may simply not know that it's not good practice or that there are now about 7 contract hits out on her. Someone should gently tell her? Not me....I'm going to bed. Good luck......LOL
Take a look at the "filters" on your feed. You have to edit each one individually, which is intensely annoying, but you may find you're following a lot of things - like status updates, or posts from people who follow you, or Hubs you don't want to follow - because things are checked in the filters that you don't want.
From posts I've previously seen, a woman's lot is not a good one. Seriously; getting propositioned, harassed, and receiving tacky comments every day; that has got to wear on a person... Don't know how you guys put up with it...
para......It's a plot......maybe a scientific experiment, a test, it is only a test....were this a real issue, you'd have been notified how to avoid it. I am feelin your pain......what the HELL is that weird looking avatar, anyway?? It's rather annoying, but I'm learning to whiz past it all. Yes, she is nice enough......just a little over-the-top, with more than just the "shares." I use my feed and my notifications. You're not able to shake this, no matter what you do?.......and you don't think this is "funny" do you.....I'm not laughing. honest. Good luck.
IT'S ME ISN'T IT? IT'S OKAY. YOU CAN JUST COME OUT AND SAY THAT YOU HATE ME. IT HAPPENS SO OFTEN IT DOESN'T EVEN HURT ANYMORE. AT LEAST THAT MUCH. I ONLY CRY FOR AN HOUR OR TWO NOW.
Actually I know it's not me because I never share anything. I'm wayy too lazy and I don't like to share. It happens to me as well, but I guess I just don't care what goes on in my feed. I don't really pay it much attention.
This is the problem. I don't pay attention to mine either because I don't follow 90% of the hubs listed on my feed. I have limited time to read hubs, so when I visit a hub I like for that hub to be from my followers... not the followers of my followers. I thought the feed was supposed to give us easy access to writers that we follow, but it has become a spam page full of shared stories and new hubbers. In moderation that would be fine. How about limiting the amount of shares per day, or at least give us a filter option to remove all of the shares.
I do understand, though; I un-followed & did all sorts of things after one dear person continued to relentlessly share her own work. Like, several a day. Enough already! I really hate to say anything to her, but it is counterproductive for her to share so many things, so often.
Jesus christ can't help you here paradigmsearch! I think we're dealing with the same problem. Don't wanna say the name, but she seems to share everybody's stuff, even things I have no interest in, and I have tried to block stuff. I simply just mostly ignore my feeds. Which means that I sometimes will miss good stuff.
I suspect this hubber also shares the HOTD with you as well. Just so you can see her avatar and see the HOTD splattered on your feed as well as when you log in and continually along the right side of the page?
I had that problem once and I unfollowed the person and hid them in my feed. It did work, but it seems like it took a day to take effect. Sorry, paradigm, it's bound to work at some point, huh? Well, I agree with whoever said that this has been an entertaining feed. Sorry, paradigm, as it's at your expense. heehee Really, I am sorry. Hope you figure this out!
I guess you have taken into consideration the fact that Sleeping is a human condition that often retards one's ability to: drive in a straight line, lick stamps, or express a generous and sharing nature, via an HP feed!
Have you not noticed the snoring that has been shared around here lately and during the last few hours??
Okay, I need an update on this before your PST bedtime hits - otherwise, I won't sleep. It's almost as bad as worrying about the earthquakes. If you get a chance, let us know if it still looks like you stopped the flow of 'shares' in your feed?
Everyone knows this thread is about GMWilliams, and my Hubpages feed is also quite imbalanced with respect to posts/hubs/comments/questions that are shared by her. If I scroll down the feed now, it's about 80% stuff shared by her, and 20% stuff shared by other people.
First off, I just want to say the problem isn't her, but some hidden mechanism that we can't control. I have tried unfollowing her and unfollowing people who follow her, but still I see everything she shares. My best guess is that if people follow both you and her, then you will see her stuff. And since you can't control who follows you, therein lies the problem.
The feed should be set up so that you only see hubs/posts/comments/questions by people you are following and comment/forum threads you are following and that's it. The way it is, it seems to be showing you stuff by people who are more distantly "related" to you in the follower/following scheme.
I don't think limiting how much you can share per day is a nice solution, since GMWilliams apparently finds many things worth sharing and that's her prerogative.
I also see all of paradigmsearch's activity and I'm not following him either.
I am laughing to hard to type with all the comments posted. I quit viewing my feed when I kept seeing my comments pop up. Now I just check my emails for notification. Unfortunately I am really behind in reading and commenting.
but none of it worked. I wonder if one of the technical staff could chime in on the algorithm that determines what is shown in the feed and what's not. The bottom line is that unfollowing a person and his or her activity does not prevent it from showing up in your feed.
PDS, did you find the solution to this problem? I read this entire LOOONG thread and did not find an answer. I followed someone about six months ago but when I noticed that she shared every single thing she read, I unfollowed. Despite that, her "shares" keep showing up. Any ideas?
Tnanks for letting me know, PDS. I was sorry to unfollow her since she seems like a nice person and a good writer, but when she logs on my whole feed will just be what she is reading. She even shares HOTD! (I think she read one of those hubs that said "share a lot and everyone will share your hubs.)
While I understand that hubbers might occasionally want to share some of their own hubs with their followers, it can be frustrating to see multiple 'old' hubs shared by their owner when looking at the 'feed'. I'd like to suggest that HubPages limits the ability to do this to a certain number...
My feed is full of "shares" by a Hubber. HP recommends we do not share our own Hubs too frequently, why can't that apply to multiple sharings by the same Hubber for other Hubs. I don't think they can possibly read all those Hubs, I think it's done for other reasons.
How do I use RSS feed so that non-Hubber ...How do I use RSS feed on HubPages so that non-Hubber-member visitors can click on "subscribe to dabeaner's RSS feed" so that they will be notified whenever I post a new Hub? I want them to be notified automatically without having to join,...
How do you react to hubs with comments disabled?As a hub reader, how important is it to you to be able to comment? Does it frustrate you when you are not allowed to comment on a hub? Will you still vote on that hub? Will you follow an author who disables comments? I wonder if disabling comments...
