Sharing With Followers

    I know that some of us have expressed frustration about hubbers we follow sharing hubs they've read, and how those shares tend to clog up our feeds.  My personal frustration is that many of the "shares" are not only FROM hubbers I follow, but they are hubs by OTHER hubbers that I follow.  Therefore, the shares are not only clogging my feed, but it's a multiple notification for me since I already receive notification of hubs published by hubbers that I follow.

    Is there a way when sharing with followers that YOUR followers who already follow the hubber whose work you are sharing can be excluded?  My patience is wearing thin, and I believe it may be happening with others.

      I am glad I am not the only one frustrated, maybe HP will finally do something about this.

      I also am frustrated because I actually feel that if I want to read something  from hubbers I don't follow, I will hub hop or search for a topic on my own. I don't need people constantly saying "read this, read that" and that's exactly what is happening.

        I think part of it is that some just want to be active enough to accumulate "Accolades," that they go overboard.

    I have found the feed useless for what I need here. When I do go to it, I will unfollow those who share multiple hubs within a short time frame. I once had one person share 10 hubs within an hour, so unfollowed.
    I have used the filter to block out almost everything.

    I actually enjoy the feed for notifications in topics that I follow, but there is so much "sharing" going on that the notifications I DO want from those topics get lost in the shuffle.

    My other complaint is that I don't want to see comments on a hub before I've had the chance to read it myself.  I also have chosen to no longer follow those who share excessively, and that's sad if there is a way to avoid that.

      My patience is wearing thin on those followers too. I don't mind the occasional share but 30+ hubs by different people is too much for me in the same day.

      I stopped following one person a few months ago who shared about 10 or more of her hubs everyday. I find that very frustrating for me now because I actually like the people I am following and don't want to break the relationships. Some people do check to see who stop following them.

      I just checked my feed and there are six shares by one person alone, plus a few more by others.

    Those I currently follow don't seem to be sharing much.

      Count your blessings, WE.  smile  It does get to be a bit frustrating at times.

      Same here, when I do see one shared by someone I follow, I generally take a look at the hub being shared, if I have time. Sometimes I'll share on the feed, but I'll tweet one or give it a FB share if it's a hub worth more exposure. I'm sure not all of our followers check the feed.

      Also, if we comment on someone's hub, it's already posted on the feed. It doesn't need to be 'shared' again.

      But it doesn't really bother me anyway. If someone shares excessively, I simply unfollow them. I had to unfollow one because of her constant sharing.  It doesn't mean I don't admire their writing.
