I think it would be great to have the option of hub hopping all the latest hubs of the people you follow. I realise that these are sent to your email but it would be so much convenient at least for me.
Hub Hopping is a multi-purpose tool for hubbers.
(a) To use and flag poor material
(b) To get a look at new hubber's material
(c) To help cut down on SPAM
(d) To allow hubbers a useful tool for increasing hubberscore/authorscore(considering that leaving comments on hubs is one factor on increasing that number)
So, changing it to a much more selfish purpose is meaningless. Those who you follow will not produce SPAM and poorly written material which Staff needs help identifying. Not to mention, it wouldn't give new hubber's material the opportunity to be seen other than through normal means.
So, I disagree with changing it.
Those are some really good points. What I meant to say is to have another hub hopping not to change the original one.
I'll still disagree with adding another one.
I would agree that staff could probably place a list of hubbers who you follow and their most recently published hubs, somewhere in your "my accounts" section and possibly load them one after another? something like the hub hopper?
But, I'm not sure if that is a good idea or not. It would then eliminate the emailing feature, that's for sure. Other than that....hmmm....I don't know if there's any real value in it.
I am not even sure if that made sense.
Sky321, I believe that what you want can be accomplished with a recent change the engineers made.
Go to My Account; click on Activity (left of middle, near the top); click on Hubbers You Follow. When that list comes up, you will see that in addition to sorting by name, we can now (only recently) sort by Recent Hubs, and they are sorted from newest to oldest.

I was really excited when I saw this new feature because I thought it was a great way to support, get to know and interact with other hubbers...But...for the most part, with some exceptions it is a load of garbage. When I think of all the painstaking time I take putting a hub together...and I...

I have been hub hopping lately and I am disgusted with the incoherent garbage that I am coming across - nothing but poorly translated articles of about 400 words, usually without even any formatting. I would say that more than half of the articles I randomly encounter are clearly nothing but spun...

Why are some hubs included for hub hopping?I recently started this interesting activity here. When thousands of hubs are published daily, on what basis are hubs selected for hub hopping. It is mostly new hubbers, but I have seen hubs of established hubbers with more than 150 hubs. I never saw any...

No stranger to writing sites, I have noticed one fairly unique feature here in Hub Hopping. I have checked it out, gotten addicted and then started wondering what exactly I'm doing as there is really no explanation on the Hopper itself. I have looked for 3 days on FAQ and Learning...

How does hub hopping affect hubber score? I would do it anyway since it is fun and I like helping the community. Or does it affect it at all? Just curious. Thanks.

I decided to give hub hopping a try. I was curious to see how good (or bad) the hubs were. I found some good hubs, others not so much. After about my second or third hop, I came across a hub that read alright for the first two or three paragraphs, and then quickly devolved into some kind of...
