share buttons were all in their individual colors of each icon to match their site, instead of all a solid black. I believe those colors looked better - and they were still in their regular place on the Hub page.
Yeah just checked mine.
They REALLY stand out now.
Purdy, aren't they?
I think this is a really interesting experiment on HP's part. I'm really curious to know which elicits a better visitor response; the color or the monochrome? Personally, I don't know which way to predict.
What they'll be testing is the effect on ad revenue.
People will not click an ad and a social button, so more social shares could actually decrease revenue which wouldn't be good.
If more social shares bring in more traffic than it is more likely that each are likely to click on the ads. Even if each customer clicks on less ads, if there are more customers clicking on the ads than it is still an addition.
They look great. I prefer the colour buttons over the black ones for sure.
Yes, Kevin, they look great now! I had been wondering about them being all black instead of their own unique colors. So glad that they made the change. Blessing for a great weekend.
They look much better, Kevin. I noticed them earlier today and like them now.
I liked the chic simplicity of the monochrome buttons, but I guess the colored ones are more attention grabbing.
Yeah, they are really nice! The colour really increases the chance of a share, since people feel more obliged to share if the colours are different.
I hope that maybe the HubPages team could publish which social media buttons, the colour or the monochrome received the most shares. Maybe they could publish it during one of the week's newsletter after the experiments?
When I used them when they were all in the same black tone the other window appeared for a minute for your action. When that window was gone I might look back two and ask myself, "Did I do that one?"
Now that they are the specific icon tones I automatically remember. I like it this way. I hope that they stay with these ones.Thank you HP.
I thought that it would be just me on the one Hub and the colors would be gone by the time anyone read this. Hooray!
Definitely. They are easier to see, easier to separate from each other. I can pick them out by color and/or letter now - I think it is faster. For the HP share I just count to 10 and within there it says 'Shared'. It is not just "loving pretty colors", they are the exact matches of their own sites.

What does it mean when a person likes all colors of one intensity? Like all rainbow colors?If color choice reflects personality, what does color intensity choice reflect about a person?

When guys say the want to be left alone do they really mean it?I think a lot of girls are like me, when I say I don't want to talk to anybody, I usually do want to talk to someone. Is it different for men?
