As part of marketing your presence on Social Media sites, it is a good idea to create Social Media buttons on your website and content. It can be quite confusing though – which button to use in which circumstance. Once you have decided on the button that you want, click on the link to choose your own options in terms of name, size, colour, etc. Then copy and paste the generated HTML code and include in your website – or give to your website designer.
