    Why are we no longer allowed to share new hubs with those who follow us?

    Can anyone tell me why HP is now recommending that we do not share our new hubs with our followers? How do we get new hubs noticed if we don't share ... and why have followers if they do not know we have written anything new? Mixed messages from HP ...

    New hubs are automatically shared with followers when you publish them.  Sharing them again is annoying duplication.  The only time you should do that is if you have had to make significant revisions to the hub and think that your followers would like to know about that.

    Thank you for your prompt answer, Pcunix ... why on earth didn't they just tell me that ... or did I miss it somehow?
    I think others, like me, do not know about this refinement as I often get summaries with the same new hubs duplicated.

    Then I have a related follow-up question. I notice that not all the hubs I follow give me an email, but they'll show up in the HP notifications email. Is this because the hubber chooses to share separately or is it just a glitch?

    Alexander Mark, these are two separate notification types. The HP notification email includes hubs from Hubbers you follow when the hubs are first published. The notifications regarding hubs you choose to follow are sent out when someone comments on that hub.

    It is not an issue of Hubbers sharing their hub, and sharing only means that the hub will show up in the feeds of followers.

    This pop up is seen since sometime now, when you click to share your new hub. Because, the moment you publish a new hub it is available in the feed and is automatically shared with one's followers. Hence sharing again is not advisable.
