Social Media Buttons

Social media share, like, connect and follow buttons are mushrooming – if you have a website or blog, get them aligned to your advantage.

Unlike the first gen of share and bookmarking buttons/ chicklets of a few years back, the new breed are integrated with the big social media platforms, and in some instances with Google and Bing search. Furthermore, they are able to provide measurement on the social media influenced traffic which moves through your web properties. Other reporting features include referral and engagement data for your online content.

To bring a little social media functionality to a webpage near you requires the simple copy and paste of a snippet of code. Use the links below to see them in the wild, and then click through to where you can create your own.
