You can't really compare the two as facebook is more of a social netowrking site whereas Hubpages is for writing articles/blogging. The only realy similarities are that you can share things with your followers, though Hubpages is very limited in terms of interaction. On the other hand, facebook doesn't really have a blogging feature that I'm aware of. The two are good in their own rite.
I'm just quoting this from a hubber I encountered before..(I forgot the name though)
"Hubpages got a lot of sense that facebook doesn't have an IQ for"
I agree so I want to share it..
Yes. If I wrote half the stuff I write on Hubpages on Facebook, the Plebs would not have a clue what I was on about. They would also be upset with some of the information.
Facebook is for mindless chats, if you have all your personal friends. Or for business if you have a profile for internet marketing.
Hubpages is different and is there to let you be creative. Facebook stifles creativity through being full of condescending and cruel people.
they don't compare. neither site has anything in common with the other.
To me, both are on different platforms. In facebook, it maybe abit more difficult to write the same way as what you do in Hubpages, where you can write with longer descriptive text and more elaborate than you can in facebook before you are literally cut off. In facebook, you have friends, in hubpages you get fans - are they the same? Don't think so, as fans may appreciate your ability and creativity more than friends, in most cases.
I feel something is wrong every time I use fb. I am very happy right now that I don't have to login to fb but have my Tweets from Twitter sent directly into facebook. That was a great move because now I can use Twitter and forget about facebook.
My comment is for Extinct Soul:
Face Book has plenty of IQ - just look at the money they make.
As for HP, where is their sense? They keep on making changes, one less inspired than the next, most people got confused or upset, many have left

Hub Pages is faltering?I keep seeing things on forums about Hubpages "tanking" or going down hill or traffic slowing or whatever. Is this just a lull on the internet since it's a busier time, or is Hubpages becoming a lesser place to be a part of?

I've been trying to make up a hub page for the last few days but whenever i try it i get told I'm doing something wrong, I attempt to change things but i get the same old nonsense.I've got better things to do with my life without messing about trying to satisfy the whim of some unknown censor....

I have been on Hub Pages about a year and I have written about 27 Hubs and they have received close to 5000 views, which I felt was not bad and my status hovers between 82-88. Last week I had about 8 of my Hubs featured, which again seemed ok. Now magically overnight, I have all these codes now...

I've been a little down about not having received a payout for nearly two years of participation here, but I'm looking at Triond, another writing site, and I must say how grateful I am for the amount of control I have about how my article looks here at Hub Pages by comparison. When I delete...
