HubPages should hide the link to follow yourself

    I have noticed that next to my hubs there is a link to follow myself. When I click on it I naturally get a message that I can't follow myself. But I think the website should hide that link altogether: it makes no sense from a usability point of view to display a link that is pointless to click on.

      Ah and the same is true for the contact link to contact myself...

    If you notice you can't follow or contact yourself from your profile. I don't see how they could do it for every hub and still allow others to follow the hub. It does no harm.

      The idea is that HubPages should hide the links from me but not from all other users. If I'm logged in as simeonvisser it makes no sense to see a link to follow or contact myself. But you should see those links just in case you need them.

    I would imagine that would involve much tech work, I really don't know. I never even notice that area on my own hubs.

    When I'm signed in, my profile does not show links for following or contacting myself.

      Ah yes, that's true. I mean the contact / follow links on the hub themselves when you're signed in.
