Is it just me or are others finding that it takes too much time for the green 'share' to respond? Sometimes I have to click 2 or 3 times.
Yes, it takes forever to turn green it seems to me! I keep waiting patiently and almost give up and sometimes click it twice and then it finally turns green. It has never done that before in the past, so maybe all of the influx of writers from Squidoo are slowing down the system possibly?
Yep, me too. Slow, and takes two or three clicks.
It could be a system resource or network connectivity issue.
Can you see if your system CPU or RAM is maxed out?
Do you see the same thing in another browser like Firefox or Chrome or is it isolated to Safari?
No problem for me either. Maybe your computer doesn't like cookies.
Thanks David and Jodah. Obviously it's my computer. Good to know that others aren't having this problem.
This problem has been reported: http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/126237
That has happened to me also recently. I shared one I had updated today and I wasn't sure it worked, but I think it did because I then saw a comment from one of my followers. I clicked it twice and hope it wasn't shared twice! Sorry if it did.
My share button is slow, too. I only click once and wait. I takes about 5 seconds or so.
I've been having the same problem. At first I thought it wasn't working then I realized it's just very slow.
I have to click it about five times for it to work, sometimes it doesn't and i give up, only to find that it had actually shared the hub but didn't say!
It took about forty seconds for me, which isn't really that long, but it seems like an eternity now that most internet things are done instantly.
I never know if the hub was successfully shared. The pop up box keeps asking if I want to continue and I don't want to keep clicking continue. Are others still having this problem? It makes sharing hubs an interesting experience because I don't see any kind of confirmation.
I just tested sharing Hubs with my followers and it seems to work.
It takes a few seconds from when you click Share to it showing "Shared!" but it is working properly in my testing.
Matthew - the site itself seems to be slow to load, too. I used Chrome and Safari, BTW. I think I saw a reference to it being slow on Google Analytics, too (or somewhere there).
Thanks for hanging in here on New Year's Eve, by the way - stay safe, and have a great 2015!
I have noticed that there are some new video ads (Sekindo) that may be having an impact on the site responsiveness and have passed this information on your our ad and engineering team to see if there is any issue we need to address.
Happy New Years!
Glad you passed it along - I just now shared a hub & I agree with the OP - it took too long to load & share. This was on Chrome, if that helps.
You're the best, Matthew - as always!
To which of the sharing buttons are you referring?
H+, FB, etc?
I just click Share and count to 5 or 6, it usually turns green within that time.
Slow for me as well. There is definitely a noticeable hesitation.

I think there should be a daily limit on sharing. Some hubbers go overboard with the button! I find it frustrating having to work through shared hubs just to locate newer content. Sharing is a nice gesture and should continue, especially for worthwhile material. But there should be a limit on it....

Okay, so I had the habit of using the share button to routinely share my new or even some of my old hubs with my followers. Well, when I tried to share my last one, I got a warning, I don't quite remember the words, but is said in effect that it was frowned upon. Well I missed that point in...

Do you read hubs that are shared by hubbers who often 'share' their own hubs?Just wondering what your thoughts are ....by often I mean, several times a day or several times a week....

I think it would be useful to have a column added to the statistics page that shows the total number of shares for each hub (Tweets and Facebook likes). There is not enough room to add two columns. So this could be a sum of all tweets and all Facebook likes in one column labeled "Shares"....

Do you always share a new hub with your followers? How many of your own hubs should you share?Is there a specific number of times that you should share your own hubs with the Share button?

My feed is full of "shares" by a Hubber. HP recommends we do not share our own Hubs too frequently, why can't that apply to multiple sharings by the same Hubber for other Hubs. I don't think they can possibly read all those Hubs, I think it's done for other reasons.
