    Liking it! I've only used the twitter share button so far and it seems that it uses the long url for the article I'm sharing rather than the shortened one which is a bit rubbish. Does anyone know how to get that shortened url?

      Thanks for the feedback! This is just the first iteration of the static buttons. I will see if we can change the sharing URL(s) to use the short version.

          When you shared the Hub on Twitter, did they (Twitter) not automatically shorten the URL?

            I noticed that the url was shorten when I shared an article on twitter!  Great job Marina!

            No, Marina, all of mine included the long URL. Too bulky, I like the short one, more space to add lead-ins to the tweet.

              Twitter doesn't (or shouldn't, at least) count the characters in the URL towards the 140 char max. I think if the text of your Tweet is short enough, more of the URL will be visible and vice versa. Let me know if you're having problems, though.

                Yes, I see what you mean, it works fine. Thanks.

        I have tried to share with followers a couple of times today, and I don't think that button works.  Is it just me??  I love the Google+ button; sure saves time when sharing there.

      A shortened url to your hub will appear at the top of preview as soon as you publish a hub.

    Wow! this is great. Can you include 'number of shares' as before?

    Love those share buttons. I still need to know how to share publicly on G+  It is on a drop down menu I can't find.

      When I share a Hub on Google+, it goes straight to them, no problem.  Wish I could help you.....

      1. janshares profile image89
        jansharesposted 3 years ago in reply to this

        Straight to the person's Gmail account? Or the Google wall? I want to use it now, too.

    @mary615.  Thanks. I will go back again and read instructions for public viewing on Google+. It is nice to have that option again.  I was surprised.

    I love these buttons, BUT did all our stats disappear with the old ones?  It seems like I lost all that data and I was proud of the numbers of likes on some of my articles after having accumulated them over the years:(

    1. Marina Lazarevic profile image82
      Marina Lazarevicposted 3 years ago in reply to this

      You can use Like Explorer to get the number of social shares for any URL. It's pretty nifty!

    2. goodnews11 profile image87
      goodnews11posted 3 years ago in reply to this

      Yes.. I was had about 25 shares in one of my article. Now all disappeared.

    Just saw this now. I like it and feel visitors may be more inclined to use them to share our works.
    Great job HP

    These new buttons are looking great, it's nice to see that HubPages have made them in the style HP itself rather than the generic buttons that come from the social networking sites.

    I'm loving the button for us Hubbers to share the Hubs we like with our followers as well. I might be wrong but I don't remember seeing that before.

    I think it would be more beautiful if the share count is also been included!!.. What do you think?..
