    Freedom and friendship.

    As in, freedom the write a Hub or hang out in the Forums. When writing Hubs, the freedom to write on any topic you wish.  Within the Forums, freedom to pick and choose how you'll participate...from merely lurking in the shadows, observing others, to diving in at the deep end.

    And the freedom to form friendships along the way.  There are a few Hubbers with whom I feel close--you can guess that might be the case if you've exchanged email addresses and still feel good about that.

      I agree.
      When your only communication with a person is on the forums or in e-mail, you are getting to know that person in a way that you never could in person. Their opinions, beliefs, and thoughts laid right out there lol
      I have a few new friends myself here wink

    All the assortment of different hubs can keep one entertained and the forums will always keep you in touch with someone.

    Yes, it is addictive.

    I completely agree Hub Pages is addictive. As I add to hub pages a hub, more I start getting, the theory of the more I give the more I receive and the communication chain becomes more stronger and popular. Get going...

    I like hub pages, even though I create hub rarely I visit hub pages daily to know what hubbers are doing.

    Hubpages is addictive!!! I created hub  page and gradually I have started liking...I am sure as hubpages has lot to offer for hubbers, you gradually become addictive.

    It gives a lot, new friends, you come to know about various topics, traffic to your website,  communication channel and network becomes strong.

    For me, it reminds me of the 'old' internet, back in the 90s...before your facebooks, myspaces, and messengers. I remember the old chatlines where you had to find someone's username in order to keep in touch (much like the system used in these forums) smile
