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.
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.
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.
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 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.
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?

Okay, so I had the habit of using the share button to routinely share my new or even some of my old hubs with my followers. Well, when I tried to share my last one, I got a warning, I don't quite remember the words, but is said in effect that it was frowned upon. Well I missed that point in...

I think it would be useful to have a column added to the statistics page that shows the total number of shares for each hub (Tweets and Facebook likes). There is not enough room to add two columns. So this could be a sum of all tweets and all Facebook likes in one column labeled "Shares"....

Do you always share a new hub with your followers? How many of your own hubs should you share?Is there a specific number of times that you should share your own hubs with the Share button?

While I understand that hubbers might occasionally want to share some of their own hubs with their followers, it can be frustrating to see multiple 'old' hubs shared by their owner when looking at the 'feed'. I'd like to suggest that HubPages limits the ability to do this to a certain number...
