    How do you feel about the Share buttons now being fixed at the top of the page?

    I liked I when it was at the bottom of the page or when it traveled down as we read. I don't know if I want to share until I read the hub. I forget to go back up and share when I am commenting and voting.

    I preferred it when it traveled down the page. I think fellow hubbers are likely to scroll back up to the top of the page so they can share the hub's length, but other readers not so much.

    I'd be interested to learn why the change occurred.

      I will scroll back up if I remember, but I have been finding that I forget to share about half of the time when I would have automatically when it was right there. Some of their changes I like and some, like this, seem downright brainless.

      I was looking for the buttons.  Are they at the top on every hub posted?  Maybe I have to look again.  Thanks.

    I too liked the share buttons as they travelled down, as you say we don't know if we want to share until we have read the hub. And if we comment first and there are a great number of comments, many wouldn't bother scrolling up again.
    There seems to be no rhyme or reason for this change

      Yes Rosemay, no reasoning behind this change. It just doesn't make sense to me. It seems they would want to make it easy to share as that brings more people to the hubs.

    It is a case of fixing something that wasn't broken Becky.

      Frog, that is what I thought also. I didn't even mind it floating down as you read. I just like it at the bottom so that I can share f I like the hub. I do not share indiscriminately, only when they are good,

    I don't like them at the top.  I'm glad you asked this question because I was going to...like you, I also prefer the old way at the bottom.

      Denise, that is what I have been hearing, or that people were wondering where they went.

    I agree, I like it at the bottom, or perhaps both. I too tend to click away once I reach the end of an article, so having a share button there would help. Maybe the assumption by HP is that someone will see the topic and want to share it by how relevant it is to their search or inquiry?

      I liked the share when it floated down the page. You could share it at any time. It is good when it is fixed at the bottom too. I just don't like it fixed at the top so I have to go looking when I decide if I want to share.
