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 don't get into these fights and disagreements with what HP does on a regular basis. But I looked at my Hubs and I only saw the four sites; Flipboard, Pinterest, Facebook and email in my share icons over the past week or so. What happened to G+ ?????This one doesn't make sense to me considering...

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 advertising, or 'no ads' at all, we are now just being given the options, 'ads'...

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 weeks ago with Pinterest banning ToughNickel is still not fixed.

When I start a new Hub, I pick a title and sometimes change this before really publishing my Hub.After publishing I sometimes want to copy and paste my Hublink into a message and found out it shows up with the URL and the first title I chose.Can I change the URL and how?

A few years back when I did Examiner.com, the writers were always talking about where is the best places to promote our work. I feel like once you use all your social media accounts, hit up any forums related to your topic, reddit, and network with people you know, you're really out of places...
