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.

Hey Hubpages Staff,I've been a member for 15 months now and have been told countless times that "Share with Followers" is NOT to be used by the author of a hub.Then why is it that the FEED is loaded with Hubbers promoting their own work?

I am fairly new here, but what I've learned is that most people follow to get followers. (I was that person). What I discovered was that, if I follow you I am required to read your hubs when published.My suggestion; don't follow to be followed. Follow because you genuinely are interested in the...

When you are notified of a new follower, how do you respond?Do you go to their page and check them out? Do you read any of their hubs? Do you mke sure that they are legitimate? I have a lot of followers who seem to be advertisers. Hubpages are really good about weeding them out but I do see many...

In my years on this site I have seen so many people randomly follow me in hopes that I follow them back. And then as soon as I do, if the topics they write on interest me, they delete me from the hubbers they're following?Do you guys really think this makes people want to read and comment on...

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