    What do you think about having "a wall" on your Hubpages Profile?

    For those of you who use Facebook or Redgage - you will notice everyone has a wall, where people can post quick messages or comments for them.

    Not a good idea. If you're active in the forums you'll notice there are many problems that could arise from this feature. Already people create accounts and create hate hubs targeting awesome hubbers especially the well known ones around here. If this wall feature is available people would leave crazy abusive remarks on the persons profile itself. And if moderation is allowed it would still be a pain rejecting and approving.

    I'm against the wall! The problem is that out of thousands of hubbers just 100 or less use the forums so you guys know nothing of what's going on at HP

    I'm not at all a fan of "walls".  I like any communications between me and someone else to remain between me and just that someone else.  I like something that has my name on it to have only stuff that I've posted on it.  The way I see it, if someone has something worth saying to me he can say it in an e.mail.  If whatever it is isn't worthy of an e.mail then it most likely isn't anything I wanted posted where my name shows up.  I know this sounds unfriendly, and I'm not unfriendly.  I like people.  I just also like to decide what shows up on my own page(s).

    I'm not a fan of feeds either.  Basically (and oddly, maybe), I prefer to go looking for whatever I want to look for - not have other people post or feed stuff I "might" be interested in (because it's pretty rare that I've ever found stuff someone/something else assumed  I "might" be interested in at all interesting).

    If we ever get walls here I'll be keeping mine "nice and clean" or maybe disabling/making it private if at all possible.

    I'm not a fan of 'walls' either. I think to have one on your profile wouldn't add anything the useful to the site as a whole. If they do introduce 'walls' then I think hubbers should have the choice whether to have one or not.

    In theory the idea is a good one; however, in practice I think it would take hubpages in another direction and probably away from its core goal of being a content rich place.  That said I'm glad that we all have our own subdomains now and hope hubpages keeps looking for ways to improve the sites community aspect.

    I think hubpages will become cluttered. I don't think it's advisable. It would be become like Facebook where everyone reveal everything they do. TMF galore!

    I think facebookers are insecured people because they want to show themselves off to be popular. Mark Sucker Big is a genius. He uses that idea that every man wants to be popular and can be done trough facebook wall posting style which can be read to the whole world.

    Just opinion, Sorry.

    People might not personally like walls, but it would be a good move on HubPages part.  They have already built quite a networking site.  Providing features like walls would increase the value of their company to potential suitors.

    What do I think?  I think HubPages needs to make their current site work correctly before they engage in trying to be more like Facebook with walls.  There are still too many bugs in HubPages.  Other than that, I don't see why having the ability to provide more information about oneself and communicate with other Hubbers via walls on HubPages is a bad thing.  If one doesn't like walls, turn it off.  I have wanted to contact other Hubbers a few times on a personal basis, but I don't want to send them an email.  If HubPages opened direct lines of communication, I would be inclined to use them.

    I think HP is fine the way it is. Having a wall would make it more like Facebook, and HP is nothing like Facebook. Also, it is a site for writers to primarily share their work, and a wall doesn't seem to help this primary goal in any way. Thanks.

    A wall is an interesting idea. Some say it will promote gossip and negativity and others say it is a great idea. I think that if hubpages were to have a wall they would have to make it different than a facebook or Redgage because of the problems that have been seen on those sites. However, I have been on facebook for awhile now and never had a problem with negativity. That said a wall could promote more activity within the hubpages community, but I think it would take away from comments on articles, which I think is more important and engaging itself.
