    Social Media is the "Rising" factor in becoming a success online today. Make sure you keep your hub-pages updated. Keep it smooth, UNIQUE, and always keep your Bolding and underlining under appropriate usage. The more clean and organized your website is the more often someone is to stay, or get a back-link to your article. Keep it real with your local online community, because people can tell a "bs" comment faster than a real one.

      I fully agree with the last 12 words of that sentence.

      This is some good advice on Hubpages and content. I try to make sure that my articles are updated and make sure everything is working well on my articles like links, pictures, and videos. This will help because if someone sees something wrong with the article like some links not working or if the picture not coming up they will not come back to it.

      Yes, because there's always something new and exciting happening in the day to day lives of Roman Emperors and Greek Philosophers.

      Is that why you're trying to sell the Site Build It scam on your Hubs?

      What has any of this to do with social media specifically?

    it is good advice. I read an article about how people read online and you've hit on many of the key points that were covered. people generally don't like to scroll, so you've got to get their attention right from the start. if they searched and found our page, then we have to give them reasons to keep reading.
    bold words and breaking up the text with easy to read chunks is key.

    not sure what that was all about but I do agree with you. I am especially guilty with over bolding and underlining stuff. Makes your page look like a crying girl with too much mascara

      Well said.  I like the visual image (mascara)!

      When I come across a Hub or profile page that is all in boldface, even if it is only the opening paragraph that is all bold, I just move on immediately and don't read it at all.  If I am feeling extra generous or patient, I may scroll down to see if anything is presented in regular font, but if not I don't stay one second longer.

      It's you and your fneighbors sending each other emails.  (I have no idea really)

      I would say that it's the people that you interact with in a specific website, or group of websites. Think of it as a local neighborhood. smile
