    How do you socialise on HubPages?

    How do you interact with the community, forums, answers, commenting etc.??

    I try to comment on topics that interest me, and mostly interact through hubs.

    I look for authors, and hubs with similar interests then I. Next if the content is interesting I comment and possibly follow the author.

    I don't socialize on HP much. When I meet a hubber that I like and we share common interests we interact via email, Facebook, Google+ or wherever the trail might lead. I've met friends on HP who I feel that I've known a lifetime and will continue to communicate throughout my lifetime with.

    Answers and commenting are my top two.  One of my pages has literally hundreds of comments.  I often wish we could have forums on our hubs.

    socializing doesnt mean just parties or occassions. by simply interacting, trying to listen and give comments is one of those. socialize in a way that people understand each other, giving some tips and suggestions, you are not just socializing but you are already doing awesome thing not for one but for everybody. so, would u like to socialize? I bet yes! coz your hubs are also very helpful! good job jakefrost!

    I interact with them on hubs and some of them I use emails and a few I even call on the phone.

    I don't necessarily socialize with people on HP.. I comment on all my hubs as they get comments, and answer questions that pop up on my stats page, but beyond that I don't do much socializing here. Personally I am here to write, and I try not to let things get in the way of that.

    Make sure you respond to comments on your hub. At least say thank you.

      I completely agree. It's simple human courtesy.

    I comment on a lot of hubs and like to communicate through the answers section in questions. There are many other hubbers I have became facebook friends with because of their interesting hubs and/or comments

    I don't go into the Forum section, but I feel that commenting on hubs is necessary for the writer to know where he/she stands. I even went to the trouble of writing a fan mail pointing out to one writer about his grammatical mistakes, but I never heard from him. I actually thought I was being helpful. Every time someone comments on mine I get excited. I look forward and respond to all types of comments (as long as they're polite; I detest people
    who use foul language-NEVER happened to me).

    As for the answers section, well some I answer (like now) because they're irresistible and still others to show off. Some are so silly I just skip (once recently I expressed my frustration at the silliness of that same question being asked over and over by so many writers-without being rude-and the host deleted my comment).

    Thanks for asking. How about you?

      You went to the trouble of writing a fan mail and criticizing the author, and you thought that was nice? Please don't ever read my work I couldn't handle your kindness

      Sorry you misunderstood. I'm a teacher by profession so I correct essays all the time. I didn't want to point out the errors for everyone to see that's why I posted it in the fan mail. I didn't critisize. I promise to keep away from you. Pls rd mine.

      Lol I understand but fan mail is public information everyone can see it you should have sent them a private message or email rather than in his fan mail that is used to attract new readers. I read one of your hubs you are a very talented writer.

    Answers, Comments, Forum, Blog and HUB. After all, hubPages has everything social i guess!!!

    About six months after my first article was published I spent time in the forums. This continued off and on for about a year. Before that I would email people who commented on my hubs when they asked questions which I didn't want to answer in comments. I did a lot of hub hopping for a while also.

    Many of the people I met in the first year no longer publish on hub pages. I have not seen them in forums the times I have looked. When Panda took so much traffic some even took their hubs down.

    Now it is a time issue. As a business owner time is hard to come by. My visits now are normally to find articles which have value to my business friends. I still comment, those I share with expect it.

    If when I am searching I find something of personal interest I will leave a comment and find a social network to share it with. There are a group now who are both writers on hub pages and who I spend time with on a business platform.  I would have to say that most of my socializing with hub pages writers is now done there.

    My only socialising on HubPages is by commenting on hubs and answering questions that interest me. I do go into the forums but only to read I rarely take part. I guess I'm a lurker smile
