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)

If you have a standard Hub that gets Amazon sales once in a while, keep the Amazon modules and get those 10% sales. Those Hubs have lots of Google history and I still get sales on them. A hat Hub just got two fifty in sales. Now who would be excited about $2.50? Me!So the old formula that Google...

Authors should be free to write about alternative medical treatments that they personally found useful for a minor ailment, but claiming a recipe cures all forms of stage 4 cancer, or any other serious terminal illness, is unethical. Especially if the hub is plugging a book with the same unsound...

When I write a personal recommendation in the 'description section; on my Amazon capsule, it doesn't seem to be appearing as it has in the past. Will this appear, after publication?

For the past year or so, I've been paying very close attention to this subject. Squidoo pushed its lensmasters for a long time into providing personal content full of first-person perspective and personal pronouns. This has been a problem for me, personally, because I prefer to write in the second...

And why can't I add any Amazon capsules? If they're not allowed, then why are they even an option? The word count doesn't seem to matter because I can have over 2,000 words but have to remove them all before the hubs will become featured again. Either way, I like the color and...
