      We're glad that you like it smile

      We released it to a small group of users yesterday morning.  We polished it over the next day, and it is now available for all users.  As was mentioned below, this feature was announced in a blog post last Saturday:

      http://blog.hubpages.com/2012/01/new-no … ne-coming/

      Again, we're glad that you like it.

        Nothing on my account, I guess I am not special enough.. lol

        Never smoked either! Drinking - occasionally as I have a bar!!!

        So what does it do or is it just a green splurge to decorate the page??

        No, I believe this is something that came up today, I kind of mistook it for the notification on Google profile.. I double checked it because it was in green and not red.
