I've got a Facebook page that I promote onto. In Hubpages when I am looking at one of my hubs and want to share it o Facebook, the icon says I need to "switch" to my personal account (which I hate/don't use)
Is there any way round that? Is this the norm?
Not got round to setting up a page before, so it was a surprise when I finally did it that I still can't simply share from sites.
Facebook does not allow Pages to Like or Share content with the Like button. It only allows individual users to do so. You can read more about it here: http://amplexity.com/blog/facebook-swit … ike-issue/
There are other options, though. If you use the Google Chrome browser, there are several apps, such as Buffer, that allow your Facebook Page to share content easily by pressing a button. Hope that helps!
I had that problem too. I wanted to keep my personal account separate from my articles page. It seems the only way to do it is to physically enter the link on the page. Its a bind but at least it gets your hub on there.
Cheers. That's a bit of a nuisance. I can share, of course, by posting onto the page, but it'd have been handier if I'd just been able to click "share" when I saw it anywhere.
I have Chrome, but don't use it as it clogs up my PC and is too slow.
I find the most easiest workaround to be posting on your page via Facebook itself. Describe the topic, give them the link and attach a related image with the post. That's the best option.

The social network share button in hubs is too small for people to notice.I feel that if it is made larger more people can like/share our hubs,given they like it.
