If I Tweet another hubbers hub because I really like it, is this a good thing? Or is it...
...an insult to that hubber? I have been reading about people who take another hubbers work and put it on their own stuff. Is this the same as sharing someone's hub on FB, Twitter, or other social places? And if these are okay to share other hubbers hubs with, is it the same as sharing them on SheToldMe, Stumple, Digg and these kind of sites? When is it a good thing (and where) to share another hubbers hub? And when is it a bad thing?
Thanks for your time,
Tweeting, Stumbling, Digging, Facebook-Liking, and such when you read a hub that you like are GREAT ways for you to show your appreciation for a hub!
You are giving that other person's hub a free, organic backlink, and that is the ultimate form of praise in the eyes of search engines.
"Taking" someone else's work is an entirely different thing, and doing so is bad for the hubber and the copier!
It is always a good thing to share a LINK to something you enjoy online - that can be a Facebook Like, a Tweet, a link on your personal blog, etc. It is never good to COPY someone else's work and publish elsewhere.
I have to agree with Drew Shadrot!
Those kind of organic backlinks are like gold to online writers like us
However, I would say that sharing links at a site like SheToldMe, which uses Adsense revenue sharing, could be questionable - the person posting the link can profit from that link, and the way that site is set up, the original author will not be able to also include a link to the same URL.
But sharing links at non-revenue-sharing sites like Facebook, Twitter, Digg and such is a great way to show a fellow Hubber some love!
If I find something interesting, I have no problem posting it on facebook... and I would be honored if other hubbers felt that I did such a great job that they want to share with their friends. I don't have a twitter or digg account so I can't comment on that. But, those are also free sites and just giving them praise.
I guess as long as your not earning income from their hub, share and share away!
Sharing another hubber's work is good for you and good for them. This is a win-win. As long as you don't claim the work as your own and are not copying the hub in another spot. As far as where to share - wherever you have a web presence is the best place.
Well there are some property laws that could be touched, but I guess it is more a question of how to handle such a situation. If somebody is using content then he should mention the source and if possible place backlinks.
In a vital network it should not be the problem just to arrange with each other and to firm a content network which will be benefical for all participants.
Just think if you would add all participants of your question as followers and agree in emails to set links on articles as well to make quotes from each other.
It would increase probably the number of incoming links to your hubs and so the potential number of visitors via these links.
If you are active in managing your network then it can help you to get this way thousands of incoming links and access to many content.
Yes, I had someone tell me they were going to tweet one of my hubs and I was thrilled. Free exposure! And hey, she liked me, she really liked me!
I agree with Edweirdo, as long as you make no personal profit from spreading the link, go right ahead.

Dear staff, is there anything that can be done to the feed where I can choose not to receive notice of hubs shared by other hubbers? There are people who share every hub they read. If I want to read a hub or follow someone I will. I don't need to see all those hubs of people I don't even know in my...

I think it would be useful to have a column added to the statistics page that shows the total number of shares for each hub (Tweets and Facebook likes). There is not enough room to add two columns. So this could be a sum of all tweets and all Facebook likes in one column labeled "Shares"....
