A facinating tool you may want to check out. HP sort of hid this.

    I never knew this tool existed and frankly never would have.
    If you click your profile then in the url bar /profile  *without deleting anything in the url bar*
    and press enter.

    The results are facinating and refreshable. You can click on any pic to go to that persons profile.

    That is kind of cool.  What made you decide to enter the word profile in the URL?

    That really is kind of cool. 

    Is there an actual link to this somewhere on the site? It seems like an Easter egg or something as it is

    Maybe epsonok0 has found a feature HP wasn't yet ready to reveal.  smile  Somewhere in San Francisco a programmer is grumbling.

        LOL, perhaps.   It's a fun thing to play with and discover different hubbers.

    Yeah, that was pretty cool. I wonder what it is though. I refreshed a few times out of curiosity and some of the pics were repeated. It's amazing to see how many people are on HP, the majority of those I've never seen before.

      It's kind of fun to see how many you recognize just from their photos. For me, it was only 4 or 5 after about 7 or 8 refreshes. I need to get out more!

      while on your profile page, add /profile to the url and click enter.  It will look like the above.

        hubpages.com/profile gives the same kind of screen, full of photo profiles.

        The one to a specific hubber MAY indicate those following; I wasn't able to tell.

          Interesting to note how many of the people I clicked on - are no longer active.

    I am thinking this is an Easter egg. I was trying to direct googles fetch program in webmaster to my profile. But when I tested the url, surprise! It is a cool thing. I followed about 4 people just because i clicked them and like what they wrote. To my knowledge there is not yet a tool or button to bring you to this. Its all raw url typing for now.
