The sharing options on the left of 'Hubs' have been changed! What is flipboard?
Earlier G+ and now even sharing on twitter option is dropped. Do you think it was better to have these options for sharing?
Flipboard is a site that allows you to compile articles and other texts into magazine style files. Niche hubs can do quite well on Flipboard and gain views. Ordinary HP hubs won't get views. Twitter is not so fruitful for hubbers apparently so Flipboard has taken over because of the increased traffic it can bring.
But, why they removed the G+ sharing button? G+ is a good platform for sharing anything that you want to share and it attracts all kinds of viewers.
Thanks Andrew Spacey for the helpful explanation. I will have to read more about this. Let's hope Flipboard option can help in gaining traffic. Thank you and have a good day!
I am also surprised to see the changed icons. Very unhappy to see that G+ and twitter icons have vanished gradually.
I never heard of flipboard either. I miss having Google there.
Thank you Rachel L Alba for responding to the question! Even I miss G+ option. I also miss the voting option 'Excellent ', 'Very good' and the icon that used to show how many times the hub has been pinned. Let's hope Flipboard helps in page views.

Since things have kind of been changed up has anyone else felt the sting of low views...and longer updating times? Is this just another lull and things will pick back up or do we need to work harder to get more views in?

I noticed tonight that the Flipboard share button is missing on all hubs. I checked a few niche sites and they are all missing. It doesn't matter if you're logged in or not. In addition, the problem I reported a few...

I have just discovered that the 'ad levels' option has been changed on HubPages in a way which really restricts flexibility for Hub page writers. Instead of having the options for 'high', 'medium', or 'low' level...

Did HubPages provide an explanation regarding why you can no longer easily share a Hub on Twitter using a button on the Hub? Why did they replace it with Flipboard?
