A few of our customers utilize third-party tools to add social sharing buttons to different components of their website.
This is a great tool for adding customized (you can select which social media appear!) social sharing buttons to different sections of your website, such as the homepage, blogs, events, etc.
A popular tool for this purpose among our customers is AddThis. At the time of writing this article, AddThis is a free tool that allows you to signup and get started creating your buttons right away!
The third-party has a user-friendly process for you to browse and select different social media channels to use, update the appearance of the buttons, and to target the section(s) of your site you want the buttons to appear on.
Here's an example of a customer using AddThis on their homepage:
Once you've made your selections within the tool, simply add the code provided to you in the areas designated by the third-party. As with any third-party code, if they ask for it to be entered in the head tags or body script of your site, you can manage this in Association Settings > Analytics/Scripts.
This is a great way to increase engagement with your members and engage on social media!
Please note: Since this is a third-party tool, we are not able to assist in troubleshooting or modifying code given to you by the third-party.
