Can we get the facebook like feature to be added somewhere in our posts? Would give the hub more visibility in my opinion to a larger crowd than just friends and family we share on facebook or twitter. What do you think?
Jobister, you're missing the point of HubPages.
The little community here on HubPages, where we browse around Hubs and check out the front page and Hubtivity, isn't where any of us make money.
To attract paying traffic, you need to get the attention of readers outside Hubpages, and you need to think bigger than attracting friends and family.
The great thing about HubPages is that, unlike a blog, Hubs attract some attention from search engines all on their own.
would we really want to become like Facebook though? Facebook seems to be associated with Teenage popularity contests, Hubpages is supposed to be an intellectual outlet
but..but....what about Farmville and Mafia Wars.....never had the interest or even a little bit of curiosity to look at what that was about anyway. my family and some friends didn't really know how to take some of my FB posts - had some fun with it tho - but finally got bored and decided to disconnect from there for awhile. LOL
I hope that more than my friends and family on Facebook or Twitter find my hubs, obviously they do because I get more views than I have friends....I want Google visits more than anything else.
don't we already know if our 'hubs' are 'popular' based on the number of views they get? That's good enough for me.
new to this. connected to write some things. haven't really thought about who reads it, who doesn't, or numbers. learned a long time ago not to chase numbers (that's just me tho) (i'll have to write about chasing numbers one day) so i guess have a different approach to this site - maybe later i'll understand a bit more about it - and move with it or just stay where i am.
I guess my comment is that it would be nice to be able to add facebook like to our post if we so desire. If you are a hardcore anti facebook then just don't add it. But for those of use that enjoy sharing our content and having our articles shared on FB it would be a nice option and I really don't see any reason not to have it. Just because you add a like button does not make you a social networking site, see CNN, etc... It is just another way to have our information spread to interested readers. In the least it would be nice to allow this code in the WYSWYG.
Everything we write we can already share with Facebook and other sites.
True we can share by copy and cutting the url. I guess I just have not seen a good argument on why not?
Umm, looks like I don't understand what you are talking about. I just went to one of my hubs, clicked on "share", clicked on "facebook" - and here you go - it opens an FB share windows, see for yourself http://www.facebook.com/sharer.php?u=ht … or+Writers
Is it what you need, or "facebook like" is something special that I am not aware of?
Facebook has integrated a new feature API where one can "like" on an external site (that has the code) and it will enter your feed on Facebook.com
I believe this is what he is referring to
so Facebook "Like" - the action , not facebook-like (be more like facebook)

If you have your own sites - it may be something worth knowing about already

So, on the one hand, it is said you should promote Hubs on social media: Facebook, Twitter, Google+; and of course, don't get spam-tastic. Maybe use hashtags so the content is more easily found. The other option often...
