    I just noticed the Twitter and other social media buttons are missing from my articles, does anyone know why?

      I'm not sure why, hopefully Hubpages is working on that issue. I have that same technical issue as well. It only allows me to promote my articles on Pinterest, but I also want to promote on Google plus, Twitter, and Facebook again.

        Hi Ann. The link above by Matthew has a lot of information about this problem. I am now able to see the social media buttons on the left hand side. I am using XP and I had to change my screen. Hold down the CTRL key and at the same time use the wheel on your mouse and just one click towards you will change your screen for hubpages. I hope this helps. I am now able to tweet my articles again.

          The problem is that we are not in a position to instruct our readers how to find the share buttons so our hubs are simply no longer shared. The share buttons should be visible to all and should also be visible on mobile and tablets which, at the moment is not the case. This issue alone could have a lot to do with the enormous decrease in traffic everyone is experiencing at the moment.

          Please, HP bring back the share buttons where everyone can see them.

            You can't even see them on a desktop with a screen resolution of more than 1100 pixels wide if you zoom in, as my mother does in order to see properly.

          Thanks Sam Montana, that actually worked, the social media buttons appeared instantly.

    My Dad said this yesterday, so I told him to reduce the zoom on his screen. That allowed the buttons to fit on the screen.

    This might be a lesson for Hubpages though. Presumably, all visitors to hubpages who have their screens zoomed in too much are not being exposed to the share buttons, which will impact overall traffic.

    Which may be an indicator of not so friendly design, a major factor related to Mobilegeddon.
