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.

Are we no longer allowed to curse in our articles on HubPages?I am going through editing old articles and it seems every time I am finished a bunch come up with the no-pay warning out of the blue. I have to go through and edit out every measly curse (which didn't bother it before) and then it comes...

My feed is full of "shares" by a Hubber. HP recommends we do not share our own Hubs too frequently, why can't that apply to multiple sharings by the same Hubber for other Hubs. I don't think they can possibly read all those Hubs, I think it's done for other reasons.

I'm not sure is this has been asked already but is it a violation or unfavorable to put up rss link on hubs?

In light of my personal goal of always having more hubs than followers, I strongly urge no one else to follow me for the time being. I am unable to write hubs, due to time constraints and being away from home(where my hub skills are burning at all cylinders).My sad life consists of very few things...

I know, odd question. I don't have a LOT of followers, in fact, I have rather few, but in some cases, I have wondered why. I have read over the profiles of a number of my followers, and notice that we share minimal or no interests, our hubs are on different topics, and despite the...

I didn't think this was allowed and it is rather annoying spamming a link to one article every couple hours.
