Which response is most rewarding to you?
Which response do you prefer to receive on your Hubs: votes up, accolades, "Pinned", "facebook like/share", "Tweeted", or a comment?
I like comments because there is dialogue which is my favorite part of any online interaction
I'd prefer to have them all, if the hub is well researched, written, and presented and is of general interest. In order of priority, I'd say:
1. Facebook and then Twitter and then Pinterest, because I read that backlinks are important;
2. Comments, because that tells me who has looked at and responded to my hub and may be my introduction to a hubber whose hubs I admire and want to follow;
3. Up and accolades because they are nice and let me know that someone thought the hub was useful or interesting or whatever.
I'm unclear what the Up signifies. i don't know what the official criteria are. My tentative working criteria have been Down (used very rarely) if the hub is inappropriate, such as is virtually some company's infomercial; neither Up nor Down (an uncommon choice for me) if the hub is of no interest to me, usually because of a dearth of content or because of bland, pointless content or because it reads like a first draft that needs work, or Up (my default usual choice) if the hub is at least a little bit interesting and/or useful.
I like facebook/twitter like/share most, in this way more people would read my hub and this may increase comment and votes up.
