Is Hubpages trying to be a Facebook clone with "status updates?"
HP adding a new "status update" with the ability to add a picture - makes me wonder if they think people are going to use the site like Facebook. My take is they should be doing things to attract more writers instead of features that most people won't use.
I hope not. The last thing the world needs is more Facebook clones.
Yes I agree, not sure what it's about. Maybe I'll have to look into it.
This is not a new feature. Hubbers have been able to add a status update with a photo for a long time. There is a bug that is causing the 'add a photo' checkbox and the submit button to display without typing something in the status field. This issue has been reported to the engineers and will be fixed soon.
Good to know - the entire site seems a bit wonky today
Let us know if you find any other bugs!
On Internet Explorer, the top toolbar isn't fully functioning and images aren't showing up - Firefox it's fine
The status feature reminds me of blog sites wherein people write about themselves and what they are up too.
My concern is: If the status content appears when doing a Google search, it might affect Hubpages ranking on Google.

The stats have frozen again, and have not been updated for 12 hours (heading for the weekend). Earlier in the week they were stuck for 3 days. That means that the stats are only OK, twice a week - very disappointing! It has been getting worse lately. Please fix this HP staff. Thanks.

Following is my observation regarding some issues and potential solutions. If these are obvious and/or old idea my apologies. Comments welcome. -----It seems that a lot of the problems regarding newbies and Hubpages can be solved by getting a blog on Blogger/Blogspot. Consider the following:* a lot...

After three days of no updates, this afternoon I saw the message that the data was updated five hours ago, and now I see they updated two hours ago. EXCEPT IT HASN'T UPDATED! The numbers are exactly the same as they have been for the past four days now including one that has zero views...
