What happened to the share button, where Hubbers could share other's hubs with each other?
There use to be a share button on each hub, and it is no longer there.
It went to the wayside along with G+ and twitter. They added an email queue and one to jump to comments. Why . . . I dun'no. Maybe they were not used enough or did not produce enough traffic. Maybe it was space?
In the righthand column on the feed page under what's new, see: New Design for Network Sites -- 7 days ago. The new design for this site has removed all of those former sharing options. It changed several days ago.
Someone said just today that Flipboard had been very lucrative for him and that he got 2,000 views in one day on one of the hubs he posted there (presumably posted the title and a link, not the actual hub). Something to think about, but otherwise there is no more sharing with followers and no more tweeting.
It doesn't address removing the HP and Twitter sharing buttons, but all that happened about the same time. I don't mind the added buttons, but I don't like that they removed the HP and Twitter buttons.

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.

The social network share button in hubs is too small for people to notice.I feel that if it is made larger more people can like/share our hubs,given they like it.

Been trying to share hubs I'm reading with pinterest, twitter, hubpages, etc. The logos usually found on the right side of the page are gone. Have I missed something? Anyone else noticing this too?
