Are "Hubs" No More? Now "Articles"?
Perhaps this change was made a while ago, but I just noticed that on my profile page my "Hubs" are called "Articles". When did that happen and why?
Probably because outside of this site, nobody knows what a "Hub" is.
Rock...Yes, it's been for some time now but I'm sure there are many who simply didn't notice. I'm all for it. Like Keith mentioned, only WE knew what was meant by a Hub. Just like People who wrote for the now debunked Squidoo, wrote "Lenses" which was also a rather mystery to the public. So, we can still call ourselves "Hubbers," among ourselves I guess! Enjoy the rest of your week-end.
Thanks Paula and Keith. I agree with both of you that it makes sense to call them articles, since everyone knows what articles are. Have a great weekend!
Funny, Paula, I hadn't noticed, but I've been trying to refer to mine as articles for awhile now. because if this site ever goes belly up, it will make it easier to move "articles" without searching and changing out the word "hub."

Have you ever created a hub you ended up hating? And if so, did you end up deleting it?

Maybe I just have a REALLY bad memory, but I was scrolling down hubbers I follow to see which hubs I fancied reading, and I noticed the very last one. I don't remember the hubbers name at all, his hubscore is 1, and when I went to his profile to check him out, he has no hubs, and 3 followers, of...
