Adding Social Media Buttons and Icons – Pushing Your Buttons

Social Media Buttons and Icons – Is Someone Pushing Your Buttons?

During these past few weeks, since adding the “Signature” option to ActiveRain posts, I’ve received so many requests, calls, and emails regarding how to add “Social Media Buttons and Icons” to the footers of Blog Posts.  You’ve probably seen many of the various types and styles other members are using on their Blogs which poses the question, “Where Are They Getting These?” Here’s some sites I’ve found that offer you these custom buttons for FREE.  This includes for personal and commercial use according to their terms and guidelines.

Here are some Links to Literally Thousands of Buttons and Icons:



Instructions For Adding Buttons and Icons to the Signature or Footer of Posts:

Once you’ve downloaded the Social Media Buttons or Icons of your choice, you can add them to your AR Signature Page (including the appropriate links) by going to your “My Home” page on AR, then select the “Settings” link on the left hand sidebar.  Just upload the button or icon into the “Signature” section of the page, add the appropriate link to your image, then click “update” to save. That’s it!

One tip I would suggest is to be careful which Icons you select for some of the Social Networking Sites. If the Icon or Button isn’t a familiar looking one, then visitors might be less likely to click on it.  For example, the cow face, what Social Network or site does that one belong to?  Maybe visitors would click on it just to find out? (LOL~)  With all these Buttons and Icon styles available, one thing for certain is that your signature can be unique.  So have FUN!!

This should give you plenty of options and creative ways to stand out from the rest of the crowd. 🙂
