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.
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!!

I have noticed that, when signed out, there is a new homepage. I am not sure whether the new format is helpful. There are some great hubbers featured making statements on how much they earn from this site, the rewards and a massive video that talks about HubPages. There are also...

Do you like the new hubpages layout?I know change is inevitable but I really don't like the new layout. The first page is plain and boring and it seems difficult to find things. When I looked up hubs under explore there were very few people I know..

As you all have probably realized by now, I have a lot of new ideas that pop into my head ALL the time. Well, my latest idea is a little bit wacky, but I think that it will be great for the HubPages community. Basically, each morning I get into the office about an hour and a half earlier than the...

If you visited a Topic Page recently, you may have noticed that it looks a little different! Read about the redesign in today's blog post! Update: Since several Hubbers were asking about this: to get to the Feed, hover over the explore menu in the header and click the link. Or go there directly.

I'm a newbie and I just discovered the customizable home page. It's VERY cool and VERY well implemented.But one thing I miss from the standard home page is seeing my author score. On the standard home page, my profile picture has the author score superimposed on the lower right corner...
