Adding Social Media Icons to Your Website

Understanding the difference between follow buttons and share buttons lets you identify which kind of button you should be putting on your website for what purpose.

Follow Icons

By adding social media icons to your website, visitors can connect with your social media profiles and increase your following. Having these buttons on your website let’s your visitors know which channels you or your business is active on and how to find your account. You can add follow buttons for all the channels that you have an account for including Twitter, Facebook and Google +. You can add these buttons anywhere on your site, but make sure they are prominent.

Share Icons

These links and buttons allow you visitors to your website to easily share your content on their social media accounts. Adding these buttons will help extend the reach of your content to new audiences and drive visitors back to your website. You can add these buttons to any page on your website or blog for easier sharebility.
