That share button is no longer on our hubs.
I've noticed a lot of other mainstream websites don't have it either.
What's up with that?
paradigmsearch . . . are you talking about the black button with white "H" on the ride side of the hub you can hit and share the hub you are about to publish with all your followers?
The last three hubs I have published, it is still there. But a warning pops up telling me that "frequently sharing hubs with followers is not recommended." So what was the purpose of placing it there to begin with?
I hate to interrupt your conversation with other hubbers, but if this is the button that is NO LONGER on hubs, then what is the button that is black with the White "H"/ HP logo on there except to share new hubs with followers?
And why is it not recommended?
I'll defer to HP staff or others to explain the nuances of the H button. Personally, I'd ship the critter out in the same box as the HOTD. I might be a cult of one on that though.
You use the H button to share someone else's hub with the community on their feed. If you look, you will see certain hubs that say "shared by" and the name of the person who used the button. It is not recommended that you use this button to advertise your own hubs because that is considered to be overly promotional.
Kenneth, that button is primarily for sharing hubs that we read written by others which we deem worthy of sharing with our followers. We can also reshare our older hubs which need a boost because they haven't had traffic in awhile (but HP doesn't like us sharing our own hubs very often).
Hmmm, I thought it was one of the most used sites.
Maybe HP is working on something behind the scenes and it is messing things up temporarily.
I hope that is all it is because those buttons - all of them - are needed to help us get noticed
Because not many people use it. Every extra bit of code on your webpage is going to make it bigger and results in a bit longer load times - even if it's milliseconds. So the cons outweigh the pros in this case. G+ is kind of dead. Not many people actually use it.
Kind of ironic how one of Google's own SEO rules ends up sabotaging one of their own products.
Don't know about it being dead. I get more traffic from Google+ than Twitter or Facebook combined. Plus they have a nice facility for setting up communities.
Social media experts differentiate between which social networks are the top five right now and which five are the fastest growing.
Facebook, Twitter and G+ all were in the top five being used in 2015, but all three are not considered as showing user growth moving forward.
If you want to have an expanding user base to help your promotional efforts, it's all new sites now.
I get many views via Google plus.
It doesn't matter that HP no longer have the option. Google Chrome extensions allows you to add a Google Plus button to the toolbar which is handy for Google Plussing any currently displayed web page.

I often use this G+ button to share inspiring hubs of our hubber friends on Google Plus pages. It is a loss for all.
I've never used Google+ so I didn't even notice that it was gone....
Interestingly, the people who use social networks the most effectively don't use automated share buttons, instead creating shares organically.
Hark! Looks like the H button has gone the way of the G+ button on the satellite sites. Still alive on the mother ship though.
Hmm... Looks like the H button adventure continues... Especially as to being signed in versus signed out on each site possibly having an effect and which browsers: http://hubpages.com/community/forum/136 … are-button

In our hubfeeds, there's a 'share' button under the hub for sharing hubs with our followers. Are you okay with using this button to share your own hubs with your followers or are you too modest? Is it appropriate to do or is it seen as similar to sharing your hub links which is frowned upon?

Do you always share a new hub with your followers? How many of your own hubs should you share?Is there a specific number of times that you should share your own hubs with the Share button?

I am in the middle of drafting a hub but am finding it to be getting quite long with a lot I still want to include. Is there a recommended (or actual) maximum length that a hub can be and is there a precedent for dividing into multiple linked parts?Many thanks,Rob

While I understand that hubbers might occasionally want to share some of their own hubs with their followers, it can be frustrating to see multiple 'old' hubs shared by their owner when looking at the 'feed'. I'd like to suggest that HubPages limits the ability to do this to a certain number...

Having been on HP now for more than four years while kinda' inactive for the last two I am looking more closely. I have cleaned up my portfolio from over 100 hubs with low views to now about 10. I had a lean of writing more for self than as a business venture seeking a niche. Now, I am looking more...

Dear Precious Followers,I have, what some of you might see as a stupid question, but I need to ask it anyway.When I am ready to hit the "publish now" button on a finished hub, and I hit the "White H on black background" button to the left, do I get a notice from HP stating...
