    My last post disappeared and so I am writing it again.  On the right there is a box in which you can share you hub with FB, Twitter and Pin It.  What happened to the Share box on the bottom of your hub that allows you to share it with StumbleUpon, Digg, Reddit and other social networks?  It was there last week on my hubs, but not today.

      Sorry for any confusion.
      A few of the social sharing options have been retired in an effort to reduce screen clutter.

      As of May 16 the following had been removed from Hubs:
      reddit
      digg
      stumbleupon
      Google +
      print
      vote up/down

        Why some hubs?  Why my hubs?

          At first it was some hubs because they were testing the new design.
          You were not targeted. When the new designed rolled out site wide, everyone was, not just you. wink

            Why then the term used was "some"?

              Because some people were testing the new design for a period of time and some people were not.

      Hey Lady,

      I noticed it was gone when they switched over to the New Hub design.

        It was there - it just took about 5 seconds or so to appear. Now it doesn't appear at all!

          Really?

          I promote my hubs daily and since the switch to the New Hub design, I have yet to see the "share" button at the bottom of the article in it's original place. The only thing I have found are the buttons on the side which now move along as the page goes down.

          Otherwise, nothing.

            That was the 'share' button I was talking about - it only had a few sharing options - I agree the old 'share' option has gone...

                Hey my excuse is that I'm an Englishman in the US wondering if he leaves at 1:15PM whether he can get home to watch the England v Ukraine game in time (I have a 1.5 hour commute) - share buttons become irrelevant at this time!
