New Hub Hopper?

    New Hub Hopper?

    Just tried the new Hub Hopper. Instantly scared me off. Not really sure how to use it because that is one big change and I don't want to make a mistake and screw up someone's good hub with a accidental bad review. Would someone please explain this or make a hub on it. I like to hop hubs a little.

    The Hub Hopper is a really cool feature that can lead you to some very talented writers. I use this on my iphone every time I get a few minutes of downtime. Don't be scared of a little change though, it's harmless!

    I would not be to concerned about screwing anything up as I usually only leave comments or reviews when the article really catches my attention. Think of the app as a neat way to window shop articles. Just flip through until you find something really interesting, then comment and check out the author.

    I agree, I don't like it. I hopped a few hubs in the past but I have not rated a hub since the new hub hopper appeared.
    Firstly, it does not allow me to hop away from a hub and find another. I don't have expertise in every single subject in the world (even if I am a granny), and there a few subjects that I am not interested in and will not read about. If I cannot get away from a hub I would not rate, then I cannot rate any.
    Secondly, I never had any problem in flagging a hub for poor content if I thought it was poorly spun or plain rubbish, whereas I try to give a break to someone whose English is not good, on the basis that i couldn't even begin to write a hub in another language!
    Thirdly, I have had a great deal of experience in the past with criterion based interviewing, which this seems to be a version of, and it's not all it's cracked up to be. There is a saying that "not everything that can be counted, counts and not everything that counts can be counted". Don't get me started on this because very often the bean counters will have you count things just because those are the only things that can be measured. This means that IMPORTANT things that may not be as easily measured get left out.

      I would like to see the stats on how many people are hopping hubs now and how many have stopped. I haven't hopped a single hub since I started this question and I used to hop them all the time.
