    I just added a couple links in one of my hubs. I posted one link to my facebook profile, and altough the ink works. It says incompatable/facebook. What does that mean?

    I also posted a link to my youtube profile. Are these links going to be a problem for me? I only post them in one hub so far. If I am doing something wrong please let me know, and I will remove them immediately.

    I can't answer the first question - wondering if it could be because you can't open the link unless you're a Facebook member?

    Rather than including a link to your Youtube profile, why not add one or more Youtube capsules leading to your Youtube videos?  That would have more appeal to the readers, IMO.

    I will look into that. I already have youtube videos at a few of my hubs, so I amawondering if a capsule is the same thing?
    Thanks for the info.

    However, I was more concerned with wether or not I was breaking any rules by having links on my hubs. Too much to learn!

      Yes, you put the clips on the Hub by adding Youtube "capsules" and pasting in the URL?

    I think the general response is that you can have up to two external links before your Hub is viewed as overly promotional.  Even then, it means that your hub is 'Flagged' not banned.  Generally you will be fine with two links to external sources (Such as myspace).

    You can also add video capsules on top of your two external links!
