Recent hubs have both extolled the benefits of sharing hubs and pointed out the disadvantages.
Positive: Hubbers become better known and their articles may reach more readers.
Negative: Hubbers' inboxes become so full of recommendations that they may become irritated and even block many of the shares.
I want to share all the good things that I come across ~ but I don't want to become a nuisance
What are your thoughts?
To share or not to share?
(Of course, if people share everything that they come across, regardless of quality, then this is the equivalent of spam. This is a problem, but it is not what I am thinking about here.)
If you share a quality hub which you think others will enjoy and benefit from then yes sharing is good. I share but not everything I read just the best. Other peoples shares have also benefited me as I have read things I probably wouldn't have come across.
Most of my followers enjoy the topics I write about, so if I run across a hub that fits in, I share and would expect the same.
Like anything else in life: use common sense! If you share too much, you are a spammer, I think. Some Hubbers jump on quickly to "read" a Hub, jump right off, say something like "great", then share that Hub. Then they go straight to the author and ask to follow them.
There have been Hubs written on just how to do this in order to get page views and followers. I personally resent it!
I share, but like Dale said, only if I think my followers will enjoy the Hub. If it's a really good Hub I will share on FB, too.

Okay, so I had the habit of using the share button to routinely share my new or even some of my old hubs with my followers. Well, when I tried to share my last one, I got a warning, I don't quite remember the...

I've noticed something kinda weird, after I write something, I put it on Facebook, because I've worked hard on it, and letting everyone I know that I have written a new hub. Do they or even even disliked it or leave...

For the last several days if I wish to share a good hub from a HP author with my followers, it won't do it for some reason. Is anyone else having this problem?

While I understand that hubbers might occasionally want to share some of their own hubs with their followers, it can be frustrating to see multiple 'old' hubs shared by their owner when looking at the 'feed'. I'd...
