    What happened to the facebook sharing button? anyone know?

    First we lost the Google+ button, and now the Facebook one, whats next, yikes all the sharing features are slowly but sure disappearing it seems, here on hubpages. Does anyone know whats going on with them cool buttons.

    For awhile there were a bunch of share buttons. As you say, the options keep dwindling. If I like a hub a lot, I still share it on Google+ and Facebook by copying and pasting the URL. I hope the HubPages management says why they reduced the share button choices.

      I'd like to know why they took away the share button choices also.  I used to both tweet and share whatever I liked.  I, like you, paste the URL and share that way.  I think the problem is that  most people reading a hub won't go to that much trouble

    I believe I still see the facebook button sometimes.  When I go into hubpages, NOT signed in, I see it more often than not.  But, when I'm signed in as myself, do not see it.  Of course, copying and pasting works very well.

    It is still there, sometimes it just takes a while for the hub to upload, and then all the sharing buttons will pop up, so no worries.  In His Love, Faith Reaper

      I think the FB button is intermittent though, it goes and comes every now and then as Stillwaters707 stated. At least that happens in my digital neck of the woods anyhow, but thanks for the cool answer Faith.

      Well, I just noticed on my hub, that the FB button is not on there, at this moment, but as you say, it may be intermittent?  Strange.  What I do know is that I can pin it on pinterest and then it gives you an option to share on Facebook!

      I have not had any Facebook buttons for several days. But, I receive Facebook traffic only when I post a HubNuggets Weekly Hub for reading and voting, so it is not a large loss.
