    Social Media Buttons do not show at all on Mobile devices. Is this yet to be changed? Otherwise this should be fixed, surely.

    On Mobile devices the Hubpage Author information has not been updated. nor is the update date displayed.
    "We also removed “HubPages Author” as a qualification. Lastly, we replaced the date with more information about you, like the number of published Hubs and followers you have." => not on mobiles

      Social media and other sharing functionality is included on all major mobile browsers, so we made a decision some time ago to not render these buttons on mobile.

      In Chrome, for example, you can find the share option by clicking the stacked triple dots icon and then "share".

        Why not put them in the  '\/' button, to the right or the author, that pulls up when clicked with the 'More Hubs by listing' if you want to save load time. Or add a 'Share' button. I really think that share buttons + Pinterest are very important for getting traffic. Howstuffworks and Ehow both have social media or share buttons on their mobile versions.

        The three dots does not appear on my mobile version and it is a terribly long pathway to share the hub. Surely having a quick upfront set of share buttons is vital in the Social media age!!!!

          I hope the decision made to remove the share buttons choice for mobile devices can be reviewed. I can't  see the 3 dots using a Windows device in either mobile or desktop mode. I really want my readers to be able to share my Hubs easily. A significant amount of my page views (Over 60%) are from mobile devices and if readers can't easily see how to share the page they might not. I feel that being visible they prompt the reader to share. Also using the alternative method for sharing on mobile devices, at least on my device doesn't have the option to share to Pinterest, and with the share buttons missing I can't share my work with my Hubpages followers. I have 40% less page views per less since these buttons were removed. My hubs were previously shared up to 100 times a week and now I'm lucky for 20 shares a week. This decision really has affected my page views and income because I create Hubs I want readers to share on their social media timeline and this is now challenging and not simple and obvious for readers to do. Can I also add that my stats had remained constant through all the changes (Inc Google updates) over the last few years, and have only dipped since having the share buttons removed for mobile devices, so this problem is a major concern for me.

    Why does it feel like the ad space in the right hand column is squeezing out my hub? Is it necessary to be that big?
