    Why Hubbers hesitate to add their Social Real Profiles on HP Profile Page ?

    I have added my Google+, Facebook, Twitter, Website and Blogger Profile on my HP profile and any body can visit my social profiles by clicking the icons at my HP profile page. But I find that most of the hubbers social profile icons are not visible and it get difficult to answer their simple questions without visiting their profiles.

    I honestly don't understand why you care.  If you want to post yours then you should do that.  I don't really see how having access to my Facebook or Twitter account helps you comment on one of my hubs or answer a question I post.  About Facebook, I would never open that up to the whole world anyway.  I use that for my close network (so I can share pictures of family without making them visible globally).  Basically, if someone posts a question, answer the question.  You don't need Facebook or Twitter access to do that.  Maybe I misunderstood the question...    Have a good day.

    Not sure why others don't, but I am careful regarding who I friend on Facebook.  I want to keep it to people I actually know, so I'm not interested in connecting to just anyone who creates a HubPages account.  Different venue, different connection criteria.

      I meant only connecting your Facebook Pages and not personal profile !

    Some people want to keep their Social Profiles separate or private. I use Facebook to connect with people I really know and I use the new MySpace to connect with Followers or Fans of my writing.

      Do you think there is any security issue.

    Sometimes the views I express on here, are not something I want to express on Facebook, because some people become agitated if you have a separate view to theirs. Some people also argue a lot and its annoying. Hubpages is an escape from all that!

    When it comes to expressing your feelings or poetry, it is also easier to do that with people who you dont know.

    It's their own preference if they want to or not.  I have come across alot of people here in hubpage that freely linke their social profile.   Some would even post it on their Bio. 

    Lastly I dont think it will make it easier/harder for you to answer question that they have posted.  smile

      In case if we are to file a DMCA complaint , they require the real profile.
