    Why isn't regularly sharing your hubs with followers a good idea?

    When you publish a new hub, Hub Pages automatically shares it with the Hub community, as well as sharing it with your followers your fans.

    Your followers are already told about any Hubs you make so sharing with them is just spamming them with something they already know about.

      Correct. Instead, share it on social bookmarking sites and social sites like Twitter and Facebook to let other non-hubbers know about hub pages.

    Imagine someone else you follow would be sharing his hubs all day long. Wouldn't this become annoying eventually? I would be very annoyed by such a person and think of him to be some egoistic who only cares about his stuff. We here at hubpages help one another by sharing their work if we like it and want other people to know about the hub too. So sharing one's hubs all the time would be asocial if you can call it like this.
    But of course sharing your own hubs time and again isn't bad at all wink.

    Don't do it regularly, because people get PO'd, and you won't be the last person to lose a follower due to this. I've stopped following around 3-4 people because they can't keep other people's or their own Hubs away from my feed. If there's an article that applies to me, then I'll accept it. But I'd really appreciate it if it wasn't full of 5-minute reads and useless information.

    Sharing Hubs is good, but be sure to return the favour for other Hubbers - keep their feed clean, and help them out when they need to spread the word.

    While I wouldn't make a habit of it, I think it's OK to do occasionally. especially if you've made substantial changes, or the hub is relevant to some recent hot topic. There are plenty of people I follow who have hundreds of hubs, many of them written before I arrived here, and I have not read them all. I have appreciated having some of the old gems show up in my feed.

    I think we all receive Notifications from HubPages regularly for all the hubs that are published recently by hubbers you followed.    Therefore, when you publish a hub, your followers will receive the notification from HubPages and there is no need for you to share it again.  But do share your hubs with other social sites like networmed mentioned.  It can help increase your traffic. smile

    For me it isn't a good idea either. Hubpages is already notifying followers of hubbers who just published new hubs, so I guess no need to do it for your followers. It might piss them discovering that hub notifications are flooding their email.

    As many others have commented, sharing hubs on a regular basis is like an assault of telemarketing calls...it just turns people off. Although we are alerted to articles published by our followers, we don't always read those stories. If I know a certain follower shares the same passion or interest in a given area and we have established a comfortable friendship, then only on rare occasions will I mention my hub to them. Otherwise, I just let the system work the way it was designed to work.
