How many members belong to HubPages?
I was just wondering which parts of the world makes up this community?
There are hubbers from around the world. Many members never participate on the site other than publishing hubs. A relatively small sampling participate in the forums and answer questions compared to the number of registered hubbers. But even in the forums, there's quite a representation globally.
One statistic not shown is that Hubpages is predominantly female, 75% or 80% I saw a demographic on the net somewhere. There's only a bunch of us guys here on the site.
Steve, you are one of the most attractive men I have ever met, going by your profile picture! Seriously, I was interested in the stats relating to women vs. men. Is this a commentary on the social aspects of Hubs, or is it that women are more likely to be writing as a secondary source of income or as a hobby? It would be interesting to understand the reasons behind the statistic.
Haha I'm not that pretty.
I think women like writing a lot more than men do.
There are times here when I feel like I'm writing for Womans Weekly. But I'm not complaining.
HA! Lately it's being referred to as "In your Face-Book" by some veteran members!
Randy I'm loking at your profile pic and I'm not even sure thats a face, what am I looking at? :-)
Even the moderators here are mostly women or am I mistaken?
On my movie forum its the other way round, there's maybe 5 or 6 women, there may be more using funny aliases. They usually give themselves away when they pick Dirty Dancing as their no.1 film. ooh.
Some refer to it as the face an asphole!
No, you are correct, Steve. Thus the changes lately to the FB type look to appeal to the majority of the writers here. There used to be more men here it seems like, but some got tired of all of the moderators selectively banning some members while others are apparently protected. Some died, some joined the women's clique of Kumbayah.
Too bad there isn't a stat showing the ratio of men to women being banned by the women's moderation team. There are always a few of the most outspoken men serving a ban of some sort, with several not being able to post here now because of the obvious discrimination of the mods. I know of at least 2 serving 30 days and 3 month bans as we speak.
HA! Say no more!
Really? A bit harsh. Couldn't the punishment have been scribbling "I love writing poetry about my pet labradoodle!" a hundred times on the blackboard or something?
Kidding. I seem to get along with the women here okay. Must be my avatar.
According to the staff page, there are six moderators and half are male and half female so that would make you mistaken.
When I visited the HubPages office in 2007, all the employees were male and they all had to take turns at doing moderating. It was a while still before any dedicated staff came on board to handle that.
According to Quantcast, the US viewing audience for HubPages is 57% female and 43% male.
As long as I am still allowed to pee standing up and post here, I won't complain too much.

I believe HubPages would greatly benefit from implementing a stronger, more thorough training period for new members. I have been writing for the internet for over seven years now. I know that may not seem long to some who have been writing longer than that. Yet in that time, I have written for...

I have had a few poems receive non-featured status. I've been able to revive them by adding a couple of text paragraphs to expound on the topic of the poem while maintaining the integrity of the poem. It lengthens the hub, extending its survival, and therefore, making it more searchable. I've also...

I'm kind of curious. If you are a woman and you add value to a forum thread by your knowledge and expertise, do you find that you often go unresponded to, unless you make a flirtatious response to the forum's male participants?

Why don't male Hub Page writers post more comments on hubs written by women?Why don't men writers post more comments, generally? There seem to be more comments by women writers? Why is this? Are men writers less social on the network? Are they more inhibited then women? Do women feel...
