Website Builder: How to Add Social Media Icons

Adding social media icons to your website makes it easy for visitors to find your brand or business

Updated over a week ago

Social media icons link to the social media profiles of individuals or organizations associated with the website. This allows visitors to connect, follow, and interact with these individuals or organizations on social media, fostering a sense of community and facilitating further engagement outside the website itself.
