    How often do you share Hubs you read with your followers?

    If I read a quality Hub, well written, enjoyable or informative, I usually share it with my followers.  I do not share every Hub I read.  How often do you share Hubs with your followers?  Do you read the Hubs that are shared with you by the Hubbers you follow?

    I hardly ever do because I thought this was viewed negatively by Hubpages.

      I believe the question referred to sharing other people's hubs, not your own. Sharing other writer's hubs is not viewed negatively.

    Never. I don't understand what happens to a shared hub. Maybe I don't know where to look for what is being shared with me.

    If I only wrote in a single narrow niche, my followers would presumably be interested in that and anything I share that's in that niche. But if I had a thousand followers and wrote on umpteen different categories, it seems to me that I would be spamming hundreds of followers with a hub not in their category of interest.

      Good point about Hubbers that have a lot of followers.
      For a Hub that is shared with you, on your feed you will see the title, followed by the author and next to the author, the Hubber that shared the Hub.

    I do share hubs I read with my followers, but I try to limit my shares to one or two a day because I don't want to clutter up their newsfeeds and be viewed as a pest. I think of sharing hubs as a recommendation, and I only share articles that I believe are well written and interesting, funny or have some other outstanding qualities. 

    As far as reading hubs that my followers share, yes, I read some of them. Some of my followers always share high quality hubs that are worth reading, and I try to read their recommendations.  Other people share more randomly, or perhaps share because someone has done them the favor of sharing. Sometimes I read their shares, sometimes not.

    I like the sharing feature as I often discover high quality older hubs that I may have missed when they were first published.

      Good point about discovering older hubs that you missed the first time.

    Whenever I find a hub that has meaning or is useful or is very interesting. Something I think my followers will enjoy reading or at least looking at.

    I share more now than I did when I started. I did not understand how to do so initially. I also read a Hub that made a good case for sharing. I can't remember the author, but it is worth reading. I share what I feel are unusually good Hubs with subject matter that broad appeal. If the Hub author is a new one, it helps give that author exposure and gains readers for him or her and sometimes for me as well. I do tend to read Hubs shared by Hubbers I follow. If they liked it, I probably will too.

      I agree.  If I read a Hub by a new author with only a few followers, I will share that with followers if I think it is well written, etc.

    I share at least one hub regularly. I share hubs that I think are well-written and informative or catch my eye for a good reason. I think it is important to support other writers.

    I used to share my hubs with my followers but the last time I did that a message popped up telling me I should not share my own hubs so I stopped doing that.

      It is okay to share other peoples' Hubs, not your own.

    When I remember but, sadly, I often don't, though I nearly always vote.  Perhaps the 'share' button should be bigger, as a more effective reminder!  Apologies to all those I should have shared; I'll try to improve from now on.  Thanks for the push!

    I share Hubs that are well written and infomative. The writting quality must be there as well. Now when I say that I do not mean I am always and only looking for professional writers to share their work. I will share any Hub that I find to be of decent quality and topic.

    I share most of the work I read... cause most of it is good! There are various benefits of doing this!

    Your traffic surely increases

    You get noticed

    You get to read more and I love to read

    I occasionally share a hub that i feel is wonderful on my Facebook wall.  Once I was going to share one of my own hubs with my followers here and it gave me the warning message that I shouldn't, so I stopped.  Now I realize that it only pertains to my own hubs, I definitely will begin sharing the ones that really speak to my heart, are useful to writers, or are extremely humorous.  These are the sorts of hubs I love to read, so my intuition tells me that the majority of those following me will too.

    I just recently started sharing hubs with my followers and it has helped increase traffic from the hubpages community to my hubs. I do read many shared hubs. I only share hubs that i feel will be beneficial to other people.

    I intend to share quality hubs and yes, I did read some hubs shared by other hubbers.  I only wrote a handful of hubs;  I cited other hubbers and their hubs in relevance to my own hub.

    I share hubs with my followers that I think they would benefit from reading. I guess it averages out to about 2-3 times a week.

    I usually share pertinent Hubs with friends - I send the link in an email. Many of the links I send are of Hubbers whose Hubs I have read. The topics are most often about how to save money, medical issues shared, or interesting political pieces.
    HubPages is a great source of how to and practical information - it comes naturally to just forward it to friends.

      I don't agree with you on this one!  My email inbox is jammed now with my own followers new Hubs that I want to read.  Why not just hit the "share" button and share with your followers?  You can also share with your friends on FB or others.

      I choose not to share on Facebook for a lot of reasons. I don't want my email inbox jammed with emails - I am selective. Different strokes for different folks I guess?
