    Hi Hubbers,

    I'd like some help with passing the Quality Assessment Process. Will you please give feedback on my Hub Is digital technology controlling you? (must be signed in to view). What can I do to improve? Thanks!

      Hi Brigiedarls! Welcome to HubPages! ☺
      I would suggest the following points.

      1. Your hub is way too short. Try writing on topics that you are genuinely passionate about and those that you have knowledge in.

      2. Add images that are in the public domain (copyright free). It is said that an image speaks a 1000 words. Pixabay, Pexels.com and Morguefile.com are great to use for free images. Remember to attribute images properly by specifying the source name/URL. It is always better to use original images.

      3. Add a relevant video appropriate to your hub.

      4. Add callout capsules, tables and polls to increase reader engagement.

      5. Work on your spellings and grammar. Download an app called Grammarly which will be beneficial.

      6. Spend your time in the Learning Center which will help you build a solid hub.

      I hope this helps. Good luck!

    As with many first-timers, you need to read the Learning Center before posting anything. It's here https://hubpageshelp.com/

    Your Hub is not what HubPages is looking for, which is magazine-style articles filled with unique and interesting information. It also requires quality images and videos and near-perfect grammar and spelling. Your piece fails on most counts.

    Here's an example:

    "Little wonder China,South Korea and the Unite kingdom have established"digital detox" centres where a person is denied access to the Internet and digital devices for several days."

    There must be spaces after punctuation and between words. Unite kingdom should be United Kingdom.

    I suspect your anecdote about "Dave" is fictional. If it isn't then identify and the place and time in which the event took place.

    I would also question its accuracy. While there may be businesses that offer tech-free holidays, the UK government or the NHS have not set up any 'digital detox centres'. You may have misread your source article. If there is one, I shall sign myself up for a course of treatment right away big_smile

    Thank you so much. I appreciate your response. I hope to be better next time."Dave" was not frictional, I guess I didn't know I should add place and time.I really learnt a lot from you,thanks gain.For the digital detox, I need to go back to my source again and verify more, so as not to misinform people.I need to verify ànd get back on that, thanks to you guys
