    Why doesn't hubpages integrate more closely with facebook?

    When somebody answers a question on Quora it shares it automatically on that persons facebook feed (as they grant permission).

    Could do something similar at hubpages, where a logged in user makes a comment on a hub or answers / asks a question on the Q&A....

    .... Now I personally would opt out of this, I'm a very private person these days, but many wouldn't. It was this system which helped Quora to grow so rapidly. Goodreads and some others do similar, I'm forever seeing that a connection of mine has finished reading another book and left a rating.

    What If I saw when a connection had commented on a hub, or answered a Q&A question?

    Or would this be too difficult to implement in retrospect with an established user base, because those other companies sought 'permissions' at sign up from day dot?

    Just an idea!

      It's a good idea, although it makes me shudder big_smile We already give away so much information about ourselves.

    It might lead to facebook seeing homepages as spammy? IMHO Quora is a bot of a different creature to Hubpages--which is primarily a content site (farm and so has to be a bit careful).

      Could do it just for the Q&A section? That's what Quora is, a Q&A site.

      The quality on Quora has gone down a lot, a lot of self promotion and ESL types now.

    I have Facebook pages, and would like to share my hubs directly to those pages when I click on the Facebook icon on a hub. But HP will only let me post to my personal timeline. Most blogs and news sites allow one to choose where to post: timeline, page, group, etc. ...
