Since the creation of the subdomain for each user, I've been wondering if a supplemental feature will help. Why not make it easier for each hubber to interact with followers and visitors? Perhaps a status update feature? Or bulletin board?
If each hubber has their own domain, it can be treated almost as an independent website, which is why Hubpages is the only content site that seems to be recovering from Google's Panda update.
If each subdomain were to be treated like its own site, why not give hubbers more control over their profile? Let them interact with people. What about giving each domain its own blog feature? I know a lot of hubbers treat the site like a blog, but many hubbers do not. Many hubs are geared towards page views and gain those views by discussing popular topics.
People already confuse HubPages with being a blogging site, which it was not designed to be and is not supposed to be, and adding such a feature woudld most likely just draw even more content that is of poor quality and a personal focus (two things that can get a Hub unpublished).
Maintaining a blog elsewhere and linking back to your Hubs is a much better web strategy for those who want one. And there's plenty of forum space for discussing, don't you think?

I was thinking this could be a cool feature, take Facebook for example, with the bar along the bottom, it would be good to see those who you follow (and follow you back) that are online and have the option to chat with them.I know HP is very different from FBK but I just though this may be cool, as...

I often intend to put a module either within my hub, or at the end, that might include some standard text/a link, e.g. that says "Copyright Me (Year) - Please do not copy and paste this article, but feel free to post a link using this url ....." or "Join Hubpages by clicking...
