All Things Now - www.allthingsnow.com is a type of repository that displays the most popular links on Facebook, although it claims to be a search engine that "scans the web for interesting content daily".
I was recently made aware that one of my Hubs was showing up on allthingsnow so I checked it out.
Unlike a Google search result, allthingsnow gives viewers a live window of your site (or Hub page in this case), including active links. I was signed in to HP at the time I found my article on allthingsnow and discovered that I could edit the hub from their window!
Has anyone else had a similar experience? Perhaps someone can explain what type of technology is presented here. I just want to confirm that others viewing my Hub while I am signed on to HubPages will not be able to edit it.
I did find other Hubs on this site and while no one was active, I did have the option to sign in as if I was the author.
Since they wouldn't have access to the HP database of information, they wouldn't be able to allow other users to change your content since they don't have your password.
It's really like an "in browser browser" is the closest I can think of it.
Kind of like the stumble or digg ones or even blogger - you have the site's info at the top but can browse the 'net normally through it.
Thanks for your quick reply QM. It was just a bit unsettling to see a "live" editable hub on a search engine result. I logged out of HP, then went to view it again and it was not editable. Still, it must link to my on-line status somehow. I'm sure there's nothing to worry about, but I'm unfamiliar with the technology

So exciting, with a couple of edits they are back on the list! Interesting, when I switched the Ads to 'On' I got an Ad for 'Top 1,000 Latin Ladies!' (could that be right?) Oh my, (It's a Hub about my favorite Hub Pages writers...How could this happen!?)

Is it a big achievement to have your Hubs featured?I was looking through my hubs in my account information, taking a quick glance at how things are going, and I noticed that most of my Hubs have the Featured icon on the end. I believe there were three (or four, don't count me on it) that...

For some unspecified reason, HubPages has chosen not to feature what I believe to be one of the bestHubs I have written. After learning that HubPages was not going to feature it without editing, I added a poll to see if that would do the trick. No success. It really would be nice if the...

I have been thinking about how I can give some of my hubs that receive less traffic more light. On our profiles, we can pick a bunch of hubs that feature in a "gallery" that fades in and out, right under our bios and above the published hubs listed in the bottom section. This year, my...

I think many people are facing same problem on hubpages. My featured hubs turned unfeatured because of traffic and when I tried to edit them and resubmitted, they got unfeatured for quality??I wonder how my high traffic hubs are now unfeatured because of quality. Even I am still writing in the same...

Why are we seeing the same old not so good hubs featured on front pages?Is it that there are so few new hubs published or people getting bored with HP?
