    Sharing button on fellow hubber's HUB is not visible. What does that mean?

    I'm not able to see share button on the hubpages of fellow hubbers which I want to share. Is this feature being removed from Hubpages?

    I have had this problem where I dont see any share button , be it facebook, pin or with followers, but it is usually loading problems, if you refresh it , you see it . If not once then if you refresh it for few times you would see it.

      Sweetie1 broadband connection which i'm using is working fine. It seems there is some problem either with the firefox problem or flash player problem as highlighted by some fellow hubber. Will download new version of flash player and see if it works

    I asked this question in the  Help Forum.  I was told not to use Internet Exployer, but to use Mozilla FireFox.  I installed the lastest FireFox, and it made NO difference.  If you don't have the button, go to the main feed page, and "catch" your comment, then click on the follow button.  That takes more time, but it will share with your followers.
    After about two weeks, the share button just reappeared!  Give it some time and it just might reappear.

      ma'aam earlier there was no problem with sharing button. May be because i logged on to HP after a long gap, HP admin might have disabled the function. It appears to be some kinda of system glitch which they would be working on. Thanks for the help.

    I also had this problem several weeks ago.  I installed an updated to Adobe Flash Player and the buttons came back.  I am not sure this is your problem, but you might give that a try.  Good luck!

      Installing latest version of flash player might solve all my worries. Will give it a shot. Thanks for suggesting it.

    The entire bar which contained the "Share" feature, which is how I used to send the URL to friends, is now missing.

    It looks like now, to share a hub within HubPages, you have to click on "Hubpages Followers", it's text with a little blackish avatar with a arrow next to it.
    The choice of words "Hubpages Followers" was a little confusing for me, but when you click it, it'll say "Hub Shared!"

      Thanks robie for your advice. I have been wondering why Hubpages has removed this wonderful function. Thanks for clearing the doubts. Will check whether it works or not.
