    I published a hub like 2 days ago on Facebook charging its users. Many people shared it and now all of a sudden I got the message stating
    "
    NOTE: A substantial portion of the content on this hub appears on other pages Please address the moderator set alert below, and correct the problem if possible." so now the hub is unpublished.
    What about those who will click on it :s
    All because the hub contains the status that the users on Facebook were sharing which is:
    �FACEBOOK JUST RELEASED THEIR PRICE GRID FOR MEMBERSHIP. $9.99 PER MONTH FOR GOLD MEMBER SERVICES, $6.99 PER MONTH FOR SILVER MEMBER SERVICES, $3.99 PER MONTH FOR BRONZE MEMBER SERVICES, FREE IF YOU COPY AND PASTE THIS MESSAGE BEFORE MIDNIGHT TONIGHT. WHEN YOU SIGN ON TOMORROW MORNING YOU WILL BE PROMPTED FOR PAYMENT INFO...IT IS OFFICIAL IT WAS EVEN ON THE NEWS. FACEBOOK WILL START CHARGING DUE TO THE NEW PROFILE CHANGES. IF YOU COPY THIS ON YOUR WALL YOUR ICON WILL TURN BLUE AND FACEBOOK WILL BE FREE FOR YOU. PLEASE PASS THIS MESSAGE ON IF NOT YOUR ACCOUNT WILL BE DELETED IF YOU DO NOT PAY....�

    I have to refer to this paragraph on my hub.
    This is the second time that this sort of thing happened to me. The last time my hub was published after a few days it was unpublished, then published again after administrator reviewing but sadly with in a few days again it was unpublished again, and so out of frustration I deleted it.

    Something needs to be done about this seriously!

      What you could do is just use a small part of the Facebook status instead of the whole thing. You would still be able to get the message across without getting hit with a duplicate thing. You could also just describe what the status says.

        Thank you for your suggestion I will do it but still I seriously find it a big flaw in hub pages. If a certain part of a hub is an excerpt it should be allowed or may be there should be some capsule made available for this purpose.

    It is a hoax anyway...

    If you want to talk about it you can paraphrase what it says then you won't get flagged.

      yeah but sometimes you need to quote something..I know I wont waste my time publishing something like this on hub pages again but I wanted to point out a flaw in their system.

        Anyone who is on Facebook would have seen it any way so it's really not necessary to repeat the whole thing. As I said, you can paraphrase it.

        Yes, you may quote things in a hub, but those quotes must be a small percentage of the hub.  They cannot be the majority, or anything like the majority, of the text.

        Another thing you can do is take a screen-shot of the quote, tidy it up in your photo editor, and post it as a photograph in its entirety, then write your hub around it. No dup content!

          Exactly! I concur with the above. Since you're not doing anything wrong, just take a screenshot of the message and post it as a picture on your hub. You can even link it back to the source. That should sort you out. (I read that article and liked it, by the way) smile

            Thank you so much..I am glad I discussed it here, as it has cleared many objections that were in my mind. Thank you all.

    Facebook is a waste of time, apart from the backlinks! Good luck to you in resolving the issue.

    I have had hubs unpublished, because I have had several incarnations on HubPages, which I delete when I get bored, and create a new profile a few weeks later.  I then cannot republish some of my work, because it has been on this site before.  Yet, others, which I have also had on this site before are published with no problem.  So, it makes little sense to me.  I have tried to ask, why my work has been unpublished, when it is entirely my own, and I have it on no other site, but I don't receive a reply.  So, now, when something is unpublished, I simply delete it altogether.  I refuse to totally rewrite my own work, simply because it has been on this site, under a different profile name of mine.

      It is most likely because the work is still showing up in the google caches.  It can actually take a week or two to get these cleared off the net in some cases.

    You need to either quote less, or add more original content.  But, honestly, this hoax has pretty much stopped being news by now....
