When I use Hubpages for mobile, my Hubs do not have any share buttons on them. I have no way to share them accept by copying the URL. But I can't share my Hubs with my Hubpages followers that way. So I switched to the desktop mode, and the share buttons do appear, but they aren't functional, nothing happens when I click on any of the icons. This wasn't a problem before the recent margin and ad changes I would share my pages with Hubbers and on social media sites regularly using these icons, but now I can't unless I log on to my laptop, but it's inconvenient. I'm usually here on my phone. Are the new margin changes incompatible with Window mobile phones? Is this a known issue? I want my readers to be easily able to share my Hubs, and this problem is also making it difficult for me to share them.
Most mobile browsers include a native share function.
You can find instructions for Internet Explorer on Window Phone at the bottom of this page.

Hi Matthew, thank you for that link, now I see I have an alternative to copying the URL when I want to share a page on my Social networks, but still there doesn't seem to be a way for Hubbers to share Hubs with followers from a Windows phone, and I'm really missing being able to do this with the new margin changes. Do you know if they're going to fix this issue with the share buttons not appearing for readers visiting Hubpages on a Windows phone? They were fully functional until the margins were changed so surely it's a glitch?
iOS, Windows Phone, and Android all have their own sharing mechanism included with the browsers. Since the function exists on all the major mobile platforms, we removed the social sharing buttons from the mobile site and currently have no plans to add the sharing buttons back to mobile.

New superb share buttons replaces the old share buttons. These include share buttons of facebook, google plus, twitter, pinterest and hubpages.

We recently rolled out a change that makes viewing hubs using a mobile browser a better experience. Basically, we've removed the sidebar and stripped away anything that wasn't essential. We've tested it on the iphone and some versions of android and it works pretty well. However,...

Is anyone else missing all of their share buttons? I can't even share on HP never mind FB or Twitter. I have no share buttons on my page. At first thought it was my iPad, but its my computer too.

Been trying to share hubs I'm reading with pinterest, twitter, hubpages, etc. The logos usually found on the right side of the page are gone. Have I missed something? Anyone else noticing this too?

I think the share buttons for hubs are poorly placed. I think they should either be at the beginning or immediately at the end of the article. The share buttons we have now do not appear until you scroll down in the end of a hub. Even the design is too, well, dull and invisible.I think they should...
