    What do you think of the new Hubpages home page?

    There has been some controversy regarding the new homepage (launched on the 9th of June) so I'm wondering what hubbers feel about this change.

    Perhaps it makes Hubpages look like more of a social network, but is this good or bad for us?

    I don't like it, precisely because it looks like a social network that way, as you mentioned.  This is a negative in my opinion, because as primarily a writing site, I don't feel it 'should' look too much like a social network.  I much preferred the old Hubpages home page in terms of overall look.  However, on the plus side for the new version, it lets you do things that weren't possible before, like look at new answers to questions you are following, without leaving the home page. 

    Overall, not a total disaster, but not great either.  I just avoid the home page now unless I have a bunch of recent stuff of interest that I want to check on.  Great question by the way!

    I thought exactly that.  I really don't like it.  I feel its messy and it definitely reminds me of a social networking site.  I used to like my old home page that I had designed in the way I wanted.  I could see immediately if I had comments that needed moderating or broken links.  I don't need to see what everyone I'm following is doing all the time.  I can look at the FEED if I need to see that.  I hope they change it back.

    I liked the last one way better.  This one stinks.

    Not bad, it's more organized. The only thing is they seem to be following a general trend in how information and feeds are presented to you. It would be nice to see a website find an original way to convey information. Adaptation is key when the market is so saturated with duplicate websites providing different content, but not in a different way.

    I don't like it, BUT I still like Hubpages so I'm learning to live with it. For me there's been too many changes too soon, Every time I venture away, which isn't that long, there's another change...YIKES!!
