Why is HubPages the worst social media in the world?
Joined a couple of days ago. So far I have published 5 and 3 of them have been banned....
Have any of you tried getting banned as well?
Here are some of their reasons for banning my hubs: I had a hub on gratis poker tourns, and they told me gambling for money wether it was paid for in advance or not was not allowed? Made a hub about electronical cigarettes? Apparently they don't allow hubs on quit smoking strategies... Last one was a funny video with my little son, and that was too 'Personal'.
Please answer this question fast before they also ban this one? I'll make a hub about the reasons!
Easy answer, this is not a social media site. Adsense is the reason for a lot of the rules. The site depends on Adsense income so they don't want to displease them. And possible be banned, then no one would earn anything.
The site is also not meant to be a blogging site. They are trying to make this a go to site for those seeking information. A video of your son would best be posted on your own blog.
There is a list somewhere with prohibited subjects.
This isn't a social media site. Hubpages is for writers, not bloggers. They have a list of things and a huge help section that is pretty good.
I've written Hubs on a few topics, one of them being how to quit smoking. None of them to this day have been banned. I have been here for 3 years.

In my book HubPages needs a total makeover! First of all they need to get rid of their useless staff, who let's personal extreme orthodox and conservative ideologies rule their worktime and harrassing of their users. How many of your articles have been banned so far and did HubPages also give you a...

Well, folks. Between Twitter and Pinterest, I did 50+ posts today; both my hubs and a whole bunch of other Hubber's hubs. We will see what the results are... Hope springs eternal...

I was getting quite a bit of traffic from Stumbleupon, but the last while I notice it hasn't been accepting my submissions from Hubpages. They say that it's to prevent people from abusing the sytem and just promoting one site all the time. Does anybody know of a way around this?

Squidoo had an active presence on social media. What will happen to all those accounts now?I'm particularly interested in the FB pages associated with the magazines. Why Vegetarian, which has over 27,000 followers, used to be a good source of traffic to vegan and vegetarian lenses. So Crafty has...

I used to do it, stopped doing it and now I just did it. But is there any value to sharing it before it even gets featured or not?

I was under the account hroger.hubpages.com for more than one year. It had been almost 2 months since I had written my last hub. One morning I wake up to check on my account and noticed that all my hubs had been unpublished due to my account being banned.I haven't received a reply from them for the...
