    Ok, I asked about this before, but couldn't figure out where I'd seen it and nobody could tell me what it was due to my cluelessness, but here it is again on a hub I just published:


    So, where does that come from? Is that an HP thing? How do I get my hubs to show up in there? Do I have to get HP to "like" my FB page first or something?  Do I have to embed the html code from that "social plug in"?  Etc.

    I KNEW I wasn't crazy.

      Shades there was a big ruckus when that first showed up months ago. Yeah stuff you like or share on your Facebook shows up in that box when others from your Facebook friends visit hp if they're logged into fb at the time. Basically if you're signed in to fb you see in those boxes on hp what hp things your fb friends are liking or sharing. If you're not signed in to fb then those boxes will show things on hp which have garnished  lots of fb shares and likes in general.

      It lets you see what hp things are getting fb likes and shares. If you -or whoever the view is- is signed into fb while on an hp hubpage then it's friend specific.

      Those boxes are on every single hub. Unless they're letting us opt out now, but that doesn't seem likely.

      When you use the share button or 'like' something, it publishes it on your facebook wall and shows up in the box here.  ...at least if you have a personal facebook account. 

      You set up a more business like page, rather than a personal one, so it may not show up here when you share something, as those connect differently.  hmm

    yours may be showing up on any of your friends hubs. sometimes you'll see your own.

    it is a Facebook plugin that HP has added and no, you don't have to do anything other than share or like one of your hubs. there's no embedding.

    here's the official announcement thread from a few months ago. http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/52182?p … ost1194149

      Yeah, I remember reading that.

      Hmm, so I'll only see people who I've actually friended from my PROFILE (the one with my real name on it), not people who have liked the fanpage I made for this name? (Technology gives me a headache).

        I'm not sure about your fan page. I'd guess not. When you fan a page that doesn't mean you want that person being able to see your likes and shares on your own wall, which is basically what the facebook feed box shows. So I'd guess not. But keep an eye on it and see who shows up.

        But if your facebook fan page is just a normal facebook account with a different name but you can friend people and people can friend you, not just join or like, then yes it would depend on which account you were logged into at the time.

        I'm not real up on facebook's marketing options.

    Yeah. LOL. I looked your page up, and liked it (for the sake of the kitty and puppy picture.)

    No I don't think those would show.
