Do you post links to your hubs on Facebook?
People keep telling me I should, but I'm not comfortable doing so for a variety of reasons.
If you do post to Facebook, do you see good traffic results from it?
Yeah, I do. The majority of my "friends" know of my status as a wanna-be writer/journalist so they're used to me pimping my wares. I also belong to a number of "groups" catering to the subjects I write about so I throw the links out there too.
I honestly don't know if it results in much traffic aside from some of my friends taking a look at the stuff out of pity.
If my hub is about something I think most of the people on my friends list would be interested in reading, I post the link at FB. I don't know how many of them actually use the link, but it gives the chance if they want to read it.
Many of my friends on Facebook are also on HubPages, so posting links to my hubs, new and old, helps to bring more traffic for my hubs. I also post links to my HubPages profile onto my blogs, which is also bringing traffic to my hubs. It's just like advertising!
I've gotten pretty good traffic from linking my hubs on facebook. I've even gotten other writers and artists to share my articles, so they reach a much broader audience. I tweet my articles and share them on tumblr as well.
I post links, but my friends mostly know that I write online and don't seem upset by it. Who knows, maybe one of them will find a link interesting, but I don't force views upon them.
I don't post hubpage links on my personal facebook page unless it's something truly related to something I want to share with friends and family, like a travel article with pics; instead I created a buiness facebook page where I post links to my hubs, and related tips and articles to tie it all together. Then I joined groups on Linkedin and other other site with discussion groups and forums and when there is a related discussion, I'll share a link. This definitely improves traffic.
