    Is it neccessary to inform a hubber if you are sharing his/her hub?

    Or does he/she automatically come to know about it?

    I have no idea, but if anybody out there wants to share my Hubs, I'm fine with it. Go right ahead, you don't have to inform me. I'm perfectly OK with it. big_smile

    I don't think it is necessary, but I think it is a nice thing to tell the Hubber that you like their work enough to share it with others.  I take that as a wonderful compliment to my work to know it was shared.  I don't believe the Hubber knows if you don't let them know you shared.

    It's a nice gesture to let them know you are sharing it, but certainly not required.

    I don't think you have to tell the hubber you are sharing their hub, but I'm sure it would please them if you did. We all like knowing what others think of our efforts of producing something worthy of sharing with their friends.

    I think it's nice but not necessary to let people know you are sharing their hubs.  However, if you are linking to their hubs, it is wise to let them know.  Sometimes writers delete their hubs.  When this happens, it causes broken links for you.  If they know you're linking, they can warn you ahead of time.

    No, as far as I know you do not have to let other people know when you share their hubs. It is nice to let other hubbers know though that you have shared their work as it likely means you found the writing helpful; it is good feedback for the hubbers. Let's motivate each other!

    No. It is not necessary. But, it is certainly a nice gesture to let the writer know that you shared their hub. When I share something, I usually say so in the comments section of the hub. I don't think we are expected to go beyond that.

    I don't think it's necessary, but it's usually nice to let them know so they can see it. Typically they aren't informed that you shared their link on your hub or anything.

    It depends upon what you mean by sharing.  If you are referring to guiding some friend to the hub so your friend can read it, there is no problem. Hopefully though your friend has enough politeness and courtesy to leave a comment so that the writer knows that someone visited the writing.

    There is not hard and fast rule. I always inform the writer when I share. I know how much I like to hear that one of my hubs has been shared.

    I love to hear a hub has been linked to my hub with the intent of sending traffic my way.  I usually try to inform authors when I am linking their hub to mine.

    I don't think it's necessary, but it's nice to know if someone has shared your hub, I take it as a complement and encouragement that I am on the right lines to creating informative and interesting hubs.
