The Best Social Media Widgets and Buttons for Your Online Store

Social media has become an integral marketing channel for businesses. With new social networks popping up every year, constant changes to existing networks, Volusion has compiled a list of helpful resources to aid your social media efforts.

Widgets

Looking to engage your users on your website? There’s no better opportunity to connect than by including social media widgets. Displaying photos from your Instagram account, showing your latest tweets, or connecting to your Facebook page is simple with these widgets.

Buttons

Different from the social media feed widgets listed above, these dynamic social media buttons allow your users to “like” or “follow” your pages with the click of a button.

Size guide

If you’re looking to create a new cover photo for your Facebook page or a new background for your Twitter page but don’t know the correct size for your image, we have the perfect resource for you. HubSpot has compiled a comprehensive collection of image dimensions for the most popular social networks.

These are some of my favorite widget resources, but I know there’s more out there. If you have any other widget resources that you use, let us know in the comments below!

Also, be sure to check out our guide for using Facebook for eCommerce and learn more about using this valuable social media resource in your online store.

      Hi May,

      If you are looking to add social media icons on to your website, you have to upload those icons to your website and then edit the code in your File Editor. Please reach out to our expert ecommerce support team and they would be happy to assist you with this.
