    I often find individual hubs that I would like to refer to again. I could book mark them on my computer but I have a lot of disorganized bookmarks as it is. In addition bookmarking sites is not handy on mobile.

    It would be nice to be able to bookmark or somehow collect hubs you like within your hubpage account when you are signed in. Basically you could build your own library.

    A similar feature similar to this exists on Tumblr and other social media.

      Hi, quotations, I do book mark some sites and hubs likewise, and this is for significant perusal. After doing my studies and if it warrant referencing, I just copy and paste the url into my text.

      Why build a special library of hubs when you have them in the mail box? Are you always deleting your mails? I do so as I did not want a cluster of mails in my inbox. I only retain that which is necessary for future use. Thereafter, it is deleted. Many thanks indeed.

      Why not use Pocket, Evernote, or OneNote?

      Opera has 'Flow', where you can send pages to read later on any device running Opera. I expect other browsers have something similar.

      My homepage is StartPage, where I can add boxes and categories of links. For instance, I have a box of image sites, a box of copied articles, and a box of useful writing resources, including some hubs. They are all visible on my homepage as soon as Opera is loaded. I can get a lot more on there than by using the built-in home page.

      Someone else asked this recently, but I can't see HubPages devoting time, money and resources to something that would only benefit the writers. As there are so many other facilities available, it doesn't make sense for HP to do it.

    Hello,  theraggededge, welcome. Your points are always useful. But I use Google Chrome and Firefox as my web browsers. I have Opera installed on my laptop, and I will zero in as you suggest. Thanks for weighing in and commenting. Have a lovely day.

          I think there's a little miscommunication happening here big_smile

    I recommend Pocket. I save many things to read later with the service. I sometimes save hubs as well. If you use Firefox Pocket is integrated into it.

    I have heard Instapaper is also nice. I have not personally used this service though.

      I do use something like that. I prefer using an script which sends a pdf of the page and images to my inbox so I can organize and search for content within my email.

      But I still think that it would be useful to cross link hubs by likes or saves as in Tumblr. Tumblr has a lot wrong with it but one of the things that does work is that it drives traffic from one post to another by showing which other users have liked (essentially bookmarked) any given post which allows you to follow these treads and discover. I think it would enhance the experience here and increase page views.
