Just started up a community page for hubbers called "What The Hub?" for really cool hubs that deserve to see more likes on Facebook!
Feel free to post your own or someone else's hub.
★★★ POSTING RULES ★★★
1. The posted item must be a hub, published at Hubpages.
2. Please like the page before posting.
3. The posted hub must be cool, witty, funny, interesting or weird and of interest to the general public (no historical, religious or informational hubs unless they are FUNNY or AWESOME). Recipe, poem, story and tutorial hubs are allowed if they are AMAZING and UNIQUE.
4. This page is moderated, so your post will appear as soon as the moderator checks your hub fits the rules.
Visit it: https://www.facebook.com/pages/What-The … 81?fref=ts
Suppose that you are not a FB member? How do you check?
You can read but not post if you are not a FB member.
If you are wondering how I check the FB posts, I visit an activity log on the page and it shows me who has posted what. I have a look and see if it is appealing to all and sundry and if it is, I change the status to public.
Well, you said in the first post "Visit it: (FB URL)" Since I have never been on FB, I just automatically thought that meant checking it.
Oh OK. I guess I meant "visit the page", but you can still read the page without joining Facebook if you want to.
Okay, thanks. I did not know that since I have never been there.
This is an absolutely awesome idea! Love it. Bookmarked the link. I'll contribute one masterpiece a week until I run out.
Hello Suzanne! I liked it! I saw your post on my group page If you haven't used scheduled posts, I think they will be of great advantage to you. I also have another great idea for hubbers who do use FB actively. For those of us with large, niche specific pages, we can share each others content. For example, I have a large animal lover's page (and blog). The page has about 5,800 fans. I don't know if any other hubbers have large fan pages- but that is a good idea! We all need a bit of SEO, and what better way to do it than with clean, non-spammed, social & blog networks? We're ALL writers with trusted accounts.
Thanks AngryElf, was thinking along those lines myself of creating niche pages but haven't yet because there is only one of me! Yes, definitely go there
Will check out scheduled posts, never heard of it but would probably come in handy.
Okay . . . Liked and looking forward to the adventure with this venture in sharing, writing, and authoring Cool . . . a marvelous idea and unique too!
Well, now you've gone and done it Suzanne. I can see that I'm going to have to start using Facebook. I really do get a lot of Facebook likes on my Hubs – several thousand – but they've all come from 'the kindness of strangers.' Facebook is a great marketing tool for people who have time to play the game. The two big viral Hubs on HP in December earned thousands of dollars and it was all due to Facebook! Thanks for starting the page.
Thanks Writer Fox! I usually post at company pages and have received tons of likes that way, but when I'm on Facebook, I'd like to take a break from all the boring marketing and read something of value and use in what I am doing (ie Hubpages stuff).
I am not an experienced Facebook user, but I'll give this a try. Thanks for setting this up!
What a neat thing to do, Suzanne! I think this is a great idea and a very nice thing to organize for your fellow Hubbers.
It was easy! Though now I will need to be committed for awhile as page admin etc...... Other people might be interested in starting up niche pages, like an arts page, or a gardening page etc the same way. The idea came to me because the weird and funny hubs need a fair few likes and shares to get started, then they take off (that's what I've seen anyway).
Here's hoping for more viral hits!
I am in. I like the idea. Now, please consider few of my hubs. Thank you Suz!
Sounds cool...I'm in.
Great FatFreddysCat! The idea for this page came to me when I was sorting through a heavy newsfeed full of informational, crappy and sales hubs and wished I had something a bit more exciting to comment on for the day. Here, I hope we can build a page which has stuff worth sharing around on Facebook and get the cool hubs some more likes and shares etc.
Good initiative Suzanne. I'm sure it will take off.
Thanks Jodah. I'll probably have to calm down and allow only a few posts a day to prevent overspamming FB newsfeeds, so let's see how it goes. Gives me something to do at work besides working too.
Thanks for doing this, Suzanne ... I have a few humor hubs that normally get very few views.
Thank you for establishing this page, Suzanne. It sounds very interesting.
Thank you to all that have replied. If people "like" the main page, then you'll be able to see the new posts in your Facebook Home Page Feed. I'll be making sure the posts are weird, funny and interesting with no boring ones
Feel free to click "like" on anything or comment. I will be running some campaigns to get outsiders to enjoy our action too.
By popular request, we have now extended WTH to be on Google Plus as well!
https://plus.google.com/u/0/communities … 5838626909
Good. I am on there. :-) Can I post a Hub to that?
Yes, just read the rules! On the right hand side. Don't forget to +1 someone else's post too.
I always read the rules. That is what I meant, someone else's Hub.
Well the Hubs on the site so far are entertaining and fun as well as odd, so I like it all. Thanks for some refreshing activity!
Thanks Patty, I am scheduling them now, thanks to AngryElf's tip, so that they turn up throughout the day so whenever people logon, they might catch one
I'm in! Thanks for making the page, we writers need all the good promotion we can get :-) And sharing is caring :-)
I just tried to post my latest Hub on the page and got an error message that sez "Sorry, your wall post could not be added at this time. Please try again later."
...wazzup with that? Anybody else have this experience?
I think that she told me that we were only allowed to post others Hubs, not our own.
The "rules" on the top of their FB page say "Feel free to post your own or someone else's Hub."
(shrugs) I'm not losing sleep over it, I was just wonderin'.
I think that I was wrong. I checked back after I posted the previous comment and she did not really say that to me. Sorry. It must have been an error, try again.
I have gotten this message too.
However, I think it's because the moderator has to approve the entry before it shows up. I have just let mine sit and,usually within a few minutes it, has been accepted.
Are you telling me that you received the same message as FatFreddysCat? If you are then you should be replying to him.
Edi: I tried to reply to FFC-- but hub pages saidd I had already posted a similar message. I'll try to be more careful next time,
If you have trouble again then I will tell him about it.
Hi everyone, unaware of this message. But I can see that people are trying to post their hubs multiple times, so I think that it is a Facebook glitch and even though it says it won't do it, it is sending it to me. Please post once and if your hub doesn't appear within the next 2 days, just email me from Hubpages with your post. I am receiving lots of hubs now, so I suggest it does work, just has the strange message on it.
UPDATE: I have amended the posting rules bit to indicate the weird message is normal.
PS - Just so you know, I am scheduling posts, so they won't show up immediately on the page, but are spread throughout the day so it doesn't spam newsfeeds too much!
PPS - Yes, can see your (rather good) hub FatFreddy'sCat. It is scheduled. Don't forget to like some other posts while you visit!
I get that message every time, just ignore it and in a couple of minutes your hub appears on the left of page. Probably just because it needs to be approved.
Ah well. When I write a funny page I might have a go at it. Facebook you say?
Never heard of it.
I liked it! I'm a new Hubber here and will definitely write something that is worthy of posting on your FB page! I've only published 3 hubs so far and am looking to publish a few centered around the Memorial Day holiday for this weekend so I'll think about submitting one of those for you. Thanks!
It's a great idea. I liked and tried to add a Hub but it wouldn't let me. It said try again later.
This is a standard notice from Facebook for this type of wall. Yes you have submitted. Don't worry about it, it is scheduled, I can see it. Don't forget to like some other hubs while you're there!
I have just perpetrated my contribution for the week there.
Just keeping this thread active.
Just made my contribution there for the week. Hope I get a good time slot.
Found and posted. Unfortunately there is only one page admin and I'm based in Australia. You're quite welcome to help me with the project by becoming an admin if you like!
This thread got messed up somehow. I keep getting "post not found" or some such. Thanks for the admin idea. I'm already overwhelmed by other "admin" on my plate. As an example, excepting for clicking the occasional Like, I've already pretty much given my own FB account a fond farewell; haven't followed anyone in months over there. Hopefully, you can find someone as equally cute and fuzzy as I am.
Yes you are cute and fuzzy! Just feel free to post weird and funny stuff at What The Hub and shovel a few likes on there as well (people from here seem to "like" when you like it too). I've scheduled in more for this week, seems putting them up 1-2 times a day is adequate as more than that seems too much for the audience. So I will work with that pattern.
Great initiative. With so many Hubbers on Facebook, we can all benefit from each other's captive audience there. Thanks for the great work.
Thanks everyone, it's chugging along!
Great idea Suzanne! A way for us all to help each other get more traffic! Im in!
Great idea, Suzanne! This is an excellent way for others who may not come up on our homepage feed to have their hubs read by us (and ideally make a nice profit from it too).
Thanks for setting this up!
Perhaps you could use some likes? Hehe This is an awesome idea indeed.. Am I allowed to promote my own hubs here? or can make me an admin? hehe
Plus, I invited all my friends to like the page, and gonna promote it on a group as well..
Lastly I also noticed that the page URL is not optimized,
you may want to change it to
if you wanted to... well, when this page reached 100 Likes..
Well I could just buy heaps of likes, but that is not what I intend. I plan to run some campaigns on it to get the public on, but it will take time etc. as it is a slower process plus I've been busy working at nights as well as days.
Thanks for the heads up and promotion! You can promote your own or other's hubs as long as they are weird, funny or of interest to the public (but nothing too ordinary please).
Yes, if you want to become an admin and help me out with posting scheduled posts from the activity log, you can. Can you message me from Hubpages with your email address that you use for FB and I'll add you as admin? Cheers x
Bumping this thread by announcing my once-a-week hub contribution. And it's my most demented one to-date.
PS - Here's another place you can post hubs: https://www.facebook.com/groups/612365392135978/ run by AngryElf - you need to join up to do it.
By the way, for everyone on this thread, I should probably mention that a polite way to do business in social media is to post your hub, like 5 hubs and then move on until next time. I notice lots of people enjoy posting, but they don't get the social media aspect of clicking the "like" button. If we all did this, all our WTH hubs would get more likes, which is how this type of thing runs well. You don't have to be precious with likes, Facebook won't penalise you! And it won't appear on your timeline.
WTH was created on a whim one evening and it's been a bit of fun. Joween has kindly volunteered to admin with me. We'll see how it goes for awhile, but if it ends up being a dead page (ie, I'm the only one liking stuff) then it will eventually be retired unless things turn around. You can't have a community with only one or two people doing the work....
I was planning to run some campaigns to get the public involved, but a dead looking page just scares them off, so unless activity picks up, I probably won't!
In other news, the WTH page on Google + is doing better, with more activity.
Hi Suzanne, some of the hubs put on here I have already read at hub pages so haven't bothered liking, but I should in future. Others I go to read the hub and leave a comment on HP but then don't return to Facebook...so forget to like there....duh. Despite this, I have still been liking some hubs.
Not a prob, Jodah. I think some people are new to Facebook and might not understand how things can work. On social media, you give love to people in order to receive it from other people (and both of these groups might be different people too). It's funny how it works but it does work
I just accepted your friend request though its weird that you have not received mine.
I must say, this one was a worthy hub.

Went to it. Ended up sharing it all over the planet.
Hi, guys and ladies, please don't forget to share and like hubs posted in the Facebook page.
+1 - It doesn't cost anything to click "like" and show your support!
Hi, Miss Suzanne, just wanted to make a friendly suggestion.
Why not modify the facebook address from:
https://www.facebook.com/pages/What-The … 6869234581
https://www.facebook.com/what-the-hub or other names that are much easier to remember..
And Thanks for making me as an editor.. Cheers!
All done - we are now at https://www.facebook.com/what.the.hub
Thank you for your help joween, means a lot to me!
We updated our link! We are now at: https://www.facebook.com/what.the.hub
You can now send your hub submissions here (even without a Facebook account): http://goo.gl/JxGfoK. Happy Hubbing!

Since Google AdSense hasn't approved me, my hubs aren't earning anything from anywhere. I've been told that ads show up on my page but that they belong to hubpages and I won't get paid for those. I guess hubpages is earning money off my hubs but I am not. Is this the case? I have other hubs I would...

Hi I spent an hour researching online but no one seems to have the answer. On other sites I've been able to post my articles via URL on my Facebook FAN page with the picture, text popping up, but not HUB articles. No problem posting to my FB profile. But with my fan page it comes up with just...

We're testing out a Facebook Social Plugin at the bottom of the sidebar on hubs. It shows personalized activity feeds (the most interesting recent activity taking place on HubPages) and personalized recommendations (hubs). You can read more about it and other plugins here.

When the share window pops up for Facebook, it only allows us to post to our Facebook personal profile. However, I typically post hub shares to my Facebook Page. This option is usually available on other sites, but not on HP. Thanks for listening!

Hello everyone!Thanks so much for all the feedback you've provided regarding the new Hub design. We've taken it to heart and have rolled out two updates to the design:1. If you put your Hubs into a Group, the Hub featured in the top right sidebar will be the next Hub in that Group2. The footer will...
