Are followers automatcally notified of my new hubs?
Are my followers automatically notified of my new hubs published? or is there something else I need to do? I'm wondering why I'm notified of some of the hubbers I follow but not others.
Followers can tick a box to either follow the articles posts or comments or whatever else. I do believe that its automatic unless you un check the box. Because I am forever getting a hundred and one message about this person created a new hub until I figured you need to uncheck the box.
There are three ways followers can know you have published a hub
(1) If they adjust their "notification setting" to tell them instantly when someone they follow publish a new hub.
(2) They are notified once daily by the summary of notifications all in one email
(3) They can set their feed to let them see newly published hubs by the people they follow and that is instant too.
I agree with Cardisa. Just to add that for this reason, Hubbers should not manually "share" their own hubs with followers via the feed unless there are special circumstances, like a major revision of the hub. Because the hub was already shared with followers when it was first published.
Website Examiner, do you get a negative point or the like, when you share a new hub with your followers since as you say, the hub when published gets automatically shared with one's followers?
Rajan Jolly, answering for Website Examiner, since it is only possible to post one answer here. Sometimes, people may stop following you if you share too many of your own hubs. I have also heard that HubPages has asked people not to share their own hubs in the feed. As for any score penalty, I doubt it.
I was automatically notified that you had asked this question
Thanks folks, this has been helpful. But now I have a follow-up question. Is it appropriate to encourage friends to join HubPages so they can follow our hubs. They may not want to write but would love to read and keep up. What do you all think? Or maybe there's a rule I don't know about.
