    How personal can a hub get?

    Do you think that hubs should stay strictly to the facts or can you use your own personal opinions and circumstances?

    You are free to publish according to your own standards as long as there are no censored stuff and you are not personally attacking anyone by name. I think, anyway.  I can be wrong. They will let you know, the hubpages team will if it is not acceptable.

    I have used personal experience in most of my hubs. If you are reviewing a product giving your opinion of a product is best if you have used the product.

    Would I write about things said to me by friends in confidence then no. So it depends on your definition of personal.

    Yes,we can  publish our personal experience. I agree with msorensson, if you are not attacking any one. You would not be able to publish your work if its un appropriate and will be rejected by HP Team.

    by adding your own personal opinions and experiences, you are making the hub more secure from copyright infringement.
    unlike wikipedia, which strictly adheres only to the facts, hubpages gives us more freedom to give our personal opinions for the benefit of the readers.

    i would think that a hub should be as personal as possible if no then theres no point creating a hub!

    I've seen some very personal and revealing hubs. As long as you're not violating someone else's privacy or going against site guidelines, personal hubs are acceptable. Just avoid anything that would be more appropriate for a blog. The site does not consider blogs to be the type of content they prefer.

    As for opinion vs facts - make sure the reader understands which is which. People often take online content to be gospel, and it's important to make a distinction. You can pose opinions in the form of questions (What if? Or 'should we consider?) to get people thinking.

    Many things can not be leashed into fact. As a matter of fact, unless something is a "how to" or a historic information hub, most of them do involve opinion/personal experience. (Most, not all)
