I just noticed the Twitter and other social media buttons are missing from my articles, does anyone know why?
There is a related forum thread here.
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.
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.

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.

If we pump up our use of social media, i.e., marketing our articles more, will it help increase our traffic much? Or won't it make much difference because we are more dependent upon organic traffic? Something tells me we might have to wait out this drought. What say you?

A few weeks or maybe a month or two ago I recall being able to see the number of facebook, twitter, pinterest shares etc next to my hubs. Now the social media buttons have changed and I can only see the social media share buttons but not the number of times my hubs have been shared. Is there any...

How many of you use social media for getting users to come to your Hubs?
