    Shades of Pinterest... big_smile

    Side note to newbies: this could very well be a Twitter issue, not an HP issue.

      Thanks for the report.
      I don't recall us showing the twitter count in our implementation of that button, but as you stated, it appears Pinterest, Twitter, and Facebook all disable the counts (presumably on their end) in some cases.
      My anecdotal evidence is that it is when they have periods of high traffic or it could be related to de-featuring the API under these high demand circumstances.

      That all being said, I am doing some follow up on our end to see if there is maybe a way to address this going forward through how we implement the buttons.

      I just confirmed that we did indeed deliberately remove the Twitter count in our implementation of that button.

        Why?

          The change was made to optimize the load times for Hubs.
          A small percentage of HubPages' traffic is from Twitter as well.
          You can still share your Hubs via Twitter, you just won't see a count on the Hub itself.

    I still have the twitter counter

    but according to this
    http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/Usin … d-Google-1

    There should be a Google+ button, i don't have a Google+ share button on my articles only FB, Twitter, and Pinterest

      We retired G+, but it doesn't look like we removed it from the Learning Center.  I will makes sure we fix that!

      As for Twitter, are you seeing the button with a count or just the button, as I see the button, but no count.

    I was thinking that was the reason.  It does seem to cause a lag on some of my hubs. 

    Thanks for the quick response.

    think twiter must have a specific content filtering or to many user log in
