Huge spike in traffic from l.facebook.com, m.facebook.com and facebook

    According to my stats, on one hub for the past 24 hours, I have a ton of incoming traffic as shown below.

    I don't mind the traffic and am thankful for it, but I have never seen quite a spike like this before.

    l.facebook.com: 280
    facebook.com: 269
    m.facebook.com: 134

    This hub averages only a few hits a day on a normal day.

    In the past, I have had some views do this from a big sharing on Pinterest on a particular hub, and I was able to confirm there was nothing "wrong" with that large influx of traffic.

    Are the above domains anything to be concerned about?  I have read some on this and have learned that m.facebook is mobile and facebook is simply good old Facebook traffic.  The l.facebook seems to have generated quite a few opinions in various forums online.

    I was hoping that I could get some HP input here from tech support.

      It sounds like you may have had some Hubs that were popular on Facebook.
      There is nothing about those sources that strikes me as problematic.

          Congrats! There are people out there who really like your hubs and want to share them with everyone else. I hope they get so popular they go viral.

      Hi Dale,

      It looks like your Hub has become popular on Facebook. Congrats! It's nothing to be concerned about. Hubs often get sudden, unexpected bursts from Facebook and Pinterest due to the nature of social sharing. People on social media tend to read, like, and share content quickly in a short period of time based on what their friends are posting at that moment (referred to as "trending topics").

        Agreed, maybe they have not gone viral but those Hubs obviously do well on social media.  So you should see if they enjoy the same success by sharing them on other social networks like Tumblr & Twitter.

    I had that happen to a hub last week, sadly a short lived burst of attention, but it was nice while it lasted smile

      I went back on FB several months ago but still cannot get the hang of it.

      Don't know how to get friends to my page, and believe me, I have tried.

      Yet, every day I might get 1 to 3 views...cannot figure that out at all!

      Any advice?

        You don't really need to 'get the hang of' Facebook.  Just create content people will share on Facebook, then they do the work promoting your Hubs smile

        Yep m.facebook is the mobile site.  As for l.facebook, no one on the Internet knows yet!
