How to add your Social Media into Website Builder

If your business is active on Social Media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter then you’ll want to promote those to your customers and make it easy for them to interact with you on those platforms.

Luckily, Website Builder has a Social Icons widget which allows you to place prominent social media icons on your website and link them to your various pages.

Click on the Widgets link within the Website Builder editor and look for the Social Icons widget. It’s usually located within the Social category, or you can use the search bar at the top to locate it.

Tip: A good place to put the icons is the top right corner of the website, as they’ll be very prominent there and will easily be noticed by visitors to the website.
