    Do you tell your friends about HubPages?

    Just curious how many people share their experiences with HubPages with friends outside of HP. Do you tell recommend it as a possible income source or outlet or as a place for good information?

    I've told my family and friends of my writings on HubPages but I have not mentioned anything about the ads. They see them and if they click and shop, all the better.

    You betcha!!  Some of my family is getting to know me more than they ever have.  People I went to school with have discovered I'm smarter than I look.  Most of my Facebook friends read my stuff, and also the Hubs I post of others.  I have a couple of friends that ask when my next Hub will be!

    There have been a couple of people who have signed up because of the income potential as well!

    Yes, I've told people.
    I often have people to stay over night, and they've often experienced me at the computer sniggering. They obviously want to know what's so funny, so I have to explain HubPages, the Forums, and the Sandpit.

    I do tell friends about it when they always see me writing or typing away at my laptop. I just tell them it's a vast community of people who enjoy writing and sharing their creations with the ability to share their works free of charge.

    Yes, I tell people about Hubpages, though not a lot and not often.  Should do it more.  As it was, my younger son introduced me to the site 15 months ago and I've been an addict ever since.

    Yes, I have told people about it for information.  I also share some of the Hubs I have read and written on my Facebook page.

    My friends and family members have read my Hubs and commented on them.  That has made me happy.

    I don't really "tell" my friends about Hubpages. However, I do post my hubs onto my Facebook wall. In fact, that's the way that I discovered Hubpages; from a friend's wall posting in Facebook. Since then, I've spent many happy hours sharing and learning on Hubpages.

    Never really thought to other than one friend who also does Hubpages, something to consider though.

    I do sometimes although I don't know that many people who even bother looking things up online in the first place.

    haha no... at least not yet. I'm not confident enough to have my friends scrutinize my work yet.

    A lot of them are probably better than me at least based on written academic works. So until I get a lot better I won't be advertising my hubs to them just yet.

    I normally share when I find something interesting or humorous thing.

    But for the serious stuff, technical and money making, I very seldom share with them.

    Not yet, but I probably will tell a few people who I think may enjoy writing for the site at some point.

    I recommend friends, family and educators to this site.  Generally, not for them to write, but to find information that they are looking for or for a good read.  Many of my friends enjoy reading and learning about topics that are new to them or on familiar ones that they would like to learn more about.

    Absolutely. I'm trying to convince two of my entrepreneurial buddies to wade into HubPages writing. I've experimented with all the article directories, and HubPages has the most potential to generate revenue. Each page is essentially a digital magazine article, with photos or illustrations, and advertisements. Just gotta get busy and write beau coup articles, research a bit on HubPages interaction, and tweak stuff. SK

    Mostly just share on my Facebook Page and Twitter. It's a great tool to share more detailed insights

    I have to a couple people already and this is only my third day!  I am officially addicted..but I guess it is good to be addicted to something that can potentially be a good source of income

    Yes I tweet me and others hubs, I like it for facebook and I have had others do it to me.  This is a place where I find new friends that are sincere about my writing, thanks.

    Absolutely! I love to let my friends know what I'm up to, and they often refer others to my articles! It's really important to publicize your work in the "real" world if it's good. We need to improve the reputation of HubPages, and that's one way to do it!

    I don't really have to tell my friends about it because literally 10 new people ask me about it at school each day. I have told hundreds of people about it, and when I tell about it, I make sure to tell them that it is not a good money making strategy. Because if they go into it thinking that, they won't worry about content. I have gotten a few people to join Hubpages, but I probably scare people away from it more than I encourage sad. But at least the ones who join don't go into it with the "get rich" quick idea.
