I'm not complaining at all, however, it would be nice to be notified if someone links your hub to theirs. That way you know where it is going. Am I right or wrong? Just like with photographs and getting permissive use, isn't this the same thing?
I don't think it is the same thing. If I read a book and talk to a friend about it, I don't have to tell the author that I talked about their book. That's the same if I write a book review - I can talk about the book all I want, even link to the author's website without getting their permission.
I would love to know when someone links my hub to theirs, but they definitely don't have to tell me. I appreciate the fact that they linked my hub in the first place. They are already going above and beyond just linking my hub, and I can't require them to go even above and beyond that.
They're sending YOU free traffic, they're not taking anything from you. In which case you should be grateful.
Unless they are shared on a hub titled "The Top Crappiest Hubs of All Time".
Really, it doesn't bother me and if I get any significant traffic from the link, the referral will appear in my stats.
I always ask before I link to another Hub. The problem I have run into (and it certainly is no big problem) is that if that other Hubs gets deleted or taken down, then I'll have a broken link to repair.
I am complimented if someone want to link to my work.

Internal sharing means internal traffic - and internal traffic doesn't make money the way external traffic does. There is already external traffic counts for tweets, pins and likes.

If I come across a hub shared by someone I follow, which was written by someone I also follow, is it better for the original writer to go the their profile to read the hub, or read it from the shared info? I seem to miss some hubs from people I follow. Help, as always, appreciated.

Hey! I've recently published a few hubs and tried to share them on Facebook as always. What usually happens is a photo from the page I'm sharing pops up, so the viewers can get a preview of the webpage. Now when I paste the link, no photo is loading, and I'm just sharing a plain old link to the...

I've been seeing hubs that have been "shared by" another hubber (i.e. the person posting it is not the person that originally wrote it). What is the purpose of this? Is there some benefit to this or are people just "sharing" hubs they like? Do you have to have...
