    Is Hub Pages Addictive?

    I have to admit that I often come onto Hub Pages even before I've looked at my e-mails. At one time my e-mails were always the first priority when going on line. So I reckon Hub Pages must be addictive at least sometimes!

    It might seem so. Especially when you get involved in the forums and reading other hubs. I personally spend a lot of time here.

    k well i wud have to admit to this one and i even come here far more  than i check Facebook. But the  truth is that hub pages is filled with people willing to share their views, showcase their talents  and give out quality information to the hub page community so being addicted to checking all those things out is really justified

    I think that social networking might actually have some elements of psychological addiction.

    Hubpages isn't exactly a social network site...but it's got some attributes of social networking sites, doesn't it?

    Some folks have literally created small businesses from their work on this site - that's where the focus should be....well, for broke folks like me, anyway :-D

    I realized that the scoring system fascinates me. I am still working it out

    I don't know if HP is addictive, but checking your Hub stats and affiliate earnings are.

    I'm addicted to checking how much money I've made.  I check it hourly.

    It's very addictive especially if you are a beginner. You find yourself thinking of what you can write about. You'll check your stats and earnings non-stop. It's good fun.

    I really do find HP very addictive. I always check HP first before doing anything else. Every spare minute that I get, I find myself in the forums, answering questions and reading hubs. I check my earnings and like to see how my hubs are faring. When I am at work I check HP on my mobile phone in my breaks!

    It most certainly can be. It's the first thing I do in the morning after I take care of my dog and fix myself up some coffee. I get on hubpages, check my comments, answer some questions, read hubs, and manage to write at least one hub in the morning. Then I usually just stick to answering questions and reading them off and on through out the day. But def. can be addictive.

    Yes, it certainly is!!! But it is also beneficial (for me anyway) in that it keeps me out of trouble.
