When is it necessary to share something with your followers?
What do you mean? Can you be more specific? Sharing of what kind?
When you write a new Hub, your followers automatically get an email letting them know. So there's never a need to notify followers of a new Hub.
You might share if you've totally transformed an old Hub, as there's no other way to let your followers know about that.
Bottom line, though, is that followers are other Hubbers. You share with them for social reasons, not in the hope of building traffic. For that, you need to share outside HubPages.
I don't want to be a pest to my followers. So I am wondering when it would be appropriate to utilize the share button on hubpages. For example, when a new hub is published by either you or others, there is a share button next to it in the public news feed. I believe this button also appears for forum discussion topics, questions, and status updates. When do you share things with your followers, and how often?
Thank you. I have a better understanding on this now. :-) Appreciate everyone's feedback.
I have a second hub acct for fiction that I recently started, so about twice when I published fiction I've shared it with my followers on this, my older and more established acct.
But they're already getting notice when you publish on your acct, so there is no need to share unless there's been major revisions. It's like pestering so I don't bother with it.
I do like to share exceptional hubs I find by other hubbers with my followers.
Personally I treat it as a step up from giving a hub a thumbs up.
Generally, if a hub is good I'll give it a thumbs up and try to leave a comment. If its excellent or if its particularly original and interesting I'll tweet about it and click to share with followers on Hubpages; I probably only do that for 1 in every 20 hubs that I read or something like that.
Hello Melinda from Texas and "Welcome to Hubpages!" Good to have you here in our great writer's community!
I will take your question quite literally and simply say, It's never "necessary" to share with your fellow hubbers, but it's fun, interesting, helpful and leads to better understanding of one another.
We share our comments most often, when we've read a hub or when someone has commented on a hub of ours. We share information ...and don't ever hesitate to ask questions. You'll find most hubbers are eager to help and a very friendly group. We also share opinions in the forums.
"Sharing," in general is a very nice part of being an HP member. At least this is what I have found.
I wish you luck and success!

Did HubPages do away with the share button to my followers or did I over use it?I was sharing the hubs I read with my followers earlier today, but now I can see the button anymore. I was wondering if I over used mine or is this the same for everyone else?

In our hubfeeds, there's a 'share' button under the hub for sharing hubs with our followers. Are you okay with using this button to share your own hubs with your followers or are you too modest? Is it appropriate to do or is it seen as similar to sharing your hub links which is frowned upon?

We added the Pinterest "Pin It" button to the small collection of popular social-sharing buttons at the top of Hubs on Thursday. Pinterest has rapidly become one of the largest social media traffic drivers to HubPages, already substantially larger than Twitter and Reddit. Maddie wrote a...
