H+ a hub and it is not in the feed

    Sometimes I give a H+ to the hubs of other hubbers when I think they merit more attention.  I used to see these hubs in my feed with a caption saying I shared it. I'm not seeing it for the past week or so.  I have been very careful to wait for the "shared" notification to appear after I click H+.  Is this another glitch?  It seems to be working for other people.  I don't share excessively--only a few a week.

      I was told that we do not see the hubs we have shared in our feed.  I used to see them a long time ago, but it has been a long time (months, maybe even a year) since I have seen a hub I shared in my own feed.

      Millionaire Tips is correct.
      Sharing a Hub using the H+ share button shares it with you followers and it will show on their feed.
      Since your feed is primarily to keep you informed of content you might want to read, we didn't think it made much sense to show you Hubs that you shared as you are already aware of these Hubs by nature of sharing them.

        I would actually prefer to see the hubs I have shared.  One, I can make sure it worked (and in case I forgot whether or not I shared it if I got distracted).  Two, it will show other people when they are over-sharing!

          I had wondered about this too, and would also like to see it on my feed. I know it used to be this way, and sometimes, if I don't see it, I think I have not clicked the button properly.

            Ok. It doesn't work as it used to work.. Either it was changed without notice or I missed the notice.  I kept thinking I was doing something wrong--like maybe if you shared too often, the shares wouldn't be allowed. What can I say except "Never mind."

        I just realized something.  I used to get a nice morale boost when I'd browse my feed and I saw that someone had given me a H+.  I haven't seen that in a long while and it made me feel bad. I felt like no one thought my hubs were good enough to share.  Also if I see an uptick in views, I may attribute it to my promotional effort when in fact it was due to a share.  I recently changed a title and it looked like the title change got me more views. Now I'm not so sure. 

        I'd really like to have this feature restored. I want to see that my share was completed when I H+ a hub and I want the nice surprise of seeing my own hub shared.  Also I'm losing information about what works or does not work when I change or promote my hubs.

          Like Matthew said, you are still able to see shares when someone you follow shares one of your hubs.  I see everything people I follow share.  There also may be people who you don't follow that are sharing your hubs, you just aren't able to see those shares.  Every once in a while I'll see something of mine that one of my followers has shared and you are right, it is a nice morale booster.  I've always thought that sharing hubs is a nice way to find out about hubbers and topics I'm not familiar with.

          The feed does not show Hubs you have chosen to share, but it does show what the people who you follow are sharing with you.

          If you are not seeing your Hubs being shared in your feed, it means no one you are following is sharing your Hubs with others.  Admin can't do anything about that.

            So the bad news is no one is sharing my hubs.  I know admin has nothing to do with that. My question is about whether or not I can see their shares of my hub in my feed.

              There may be many people sharing your hubs Catherine, but you are only able to see the hubs that are shared by the people you follow.  From your profile page it looks like you follow 198 people.  Only when one of those 198 people share a hub, yours or someone else's, are you able to see it in your feed.  I know I've seen one of your hubs shared on my feed by someone else before.

        1)This is the doubt I also wanted to clear. If I click share, does it appear to me on the main page of hubpages or not. Because, when I log on to the main page, I see only shares by others but not my share of others' hubs. Do they go down and I am unable to see them?
        2) Another doubt is, can I share my own hub by clicking H+?
