This is not so much for discussion, rather, I need an immediate help from any experienced Hubbers. I am a new member and have just posted my first Hub. I am ready to share with friends, but there is no Follow button on my profile page. Instead I see Edit Profile where Follow button should be. I finished editing my profile and saved it. Would anyone please help me? I don't want to lose my followers.
Thank you for your reply. Sadly and frustratingly, I still don't see the button. My friend also tries to see from his computer, and still no Follow button on my profile page. How could this be? I sent a question but they don't answer, that's why I asked for help from the community. Thank you anyway.
You can't see the follow button because you can't follow yourself.
Yes, you have a "follow" button. I just checked your hub. It is above your number of published hubs, followers etc. you can't see your own follow button, as has already been said. Welcome to HubPages.
Thank you. Jodah. Now I understand that why I don't see the button. There is another mystery. My friends cannot see the button either when they see my post in their own computers. After lots of thinking, I am concluding that the follow feature is for Hubbers only; in order for my friends to follow me, they have to become a Hubber whether they write their Hub or not. Do you think this is right?
Yukiko, do you mean how do you add "Follow me also on..." buttons? If so, go into your profile, edit profile then scroll down to Links. There are several boxes there for Facebook, Twitter, etc. Enter the links to your media sites and those buttons will show up on your profile.
It's right there. And as "following" is a Hub Account feature, it is true that people who do not have accounts or are not signed into them will not see it.
Thank you for the assurance, Psycheskinner! Do you know how to close this conversation?
We never close conversations. Once they start we keep them going forever
Yep - four years from now someone will come to this thread, not read all the posts and tell you how to find your follow button. LOL
Oh, Phyllis, thank you for another laugh!!
You people Habbers are so helpful, kind, wonderful and have a great sense of humor. I never thought I would have such a welcoming experience when I found this blog site. Thanks to Hubpages for the opportunity for us to come together. I am touched. :-)
My goodness - you are most welcome, Yukiko. This is a great community and a sense of humor is always a good thing to have. Just be careful not to call HubPages a blog site, for it is not, and some hubbers will get upset over that. Ha ha ha. It is a writing site or content site where we write articles. So glad you are part of the site and having fun.

I know that you can choose to display your idle hubs on your profile page, but I don't, because I don't want Google to see them at all and get confused by all those "do not follow." What this means is that my idle hubs are not available for anyone to see, and I have to actively...

Is there anything you don't you like about the new hubpages profile pages?I believe changing over is irreversible and ultimately inevitable for all hubbers but for all those who find change difficult :-) it would be good to hear of any negative observations regarding the new profile pages that you...

I just updated my HubPages profile a couple days ago and in my profile linked to some of my favorite hub topics that I wrote about. Is this bad to do this since on the profile page we have those same hubs randomly come up below? I just don't want overkill but like the thought that I've got my...

Would the hubpages staff ever consider building tools that allow hubbers to personalize their homepage / profile page? Are there some design options you could build to allow for our profile page to reflect a little more about what we hub about or who we are? For example, what about the freedom to...

Hard to believe I still can't figure out how to do that!

It would be useful to be able to sort our hubs into categories on the profile page. This would make it easier for readers to see what else is available in subjects that interest them, and also remind writers to work on a niche. I think the option was available on the old profile page - was it...
