    Hi, is it still impossible to have the Google+ button on HubPages?

    I know we had it a long time ago, then it disappeared. Just checking for an update. Thanks!

      Although this is a request that we get regularly, the reality is that we currently do not get much traffic from Google+ as compared to several other social media platforms that are not available as buttons on the site. Each button displayed increases the amount of time it takes for each Hub to load (significantly in many cases as the image are loaded from servers other than HubPages'), so we made a decision to limit those available.

      We understand that Google+ is growing and if we get a large number of people who request this feature, then we may revisit the social media options on all Hubs.

      UPDATE: Here is a toolbar like @moonlake mentioned.

      It is not available for all browsers.

        Thanks for the info, Matthew. I get most of my social traffic from Pinterest, so at least we have that button.

        Even so,  you can still post hubs there simply by copying and pasting your URL to it.

      I just shared one of your hubs to Google+. You can add your own button to your toolbar works great.

    I would love to see Google+ added to Hubpages. Google+ has grown into a major social network. It would also be a benefit to everyone. I'm surprised it hasn't been added, as well as other social platform options. Would love to see one for sure.

    I agree with timetraveler. I share my URL on G+ and a pretty box shows my article with a picture and allows me to comment on the article. It's fast and simple to do if you keep G+ on your bookmark bar.
