Now that social media drives 31% of the overall traffic sites receive, it is critical to success online that you develop a greater social presence.

Our goal: To build out the most comprehensive suite of tools to help you engage and grow your audience, including your social following.

Today, we formally released a new set of Follow Buttons.

Example of Follow Me Buttons

Insert them in your sidebar (or anywhere you like, really).

Add up to 16 supported services including: Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, YouTube, Google Plus, LinkedIn (personal and company profiles), RSS, Tumblr, Instagram, Vimeo, Flickr, Foursquare, Yelp, Bloglovin, and Dribbble.

Setting Up Follow Buttons

First, here’s a quick look at what your settings dashboard will look like.

New Follow Me App announcement

As you fill in your favorite social profiles, your follow buttons will populate in the preview box. It’s simple, and you’ll love it.

Since our installation instructions are different for Shareaholic for WordPress users and non-Wordpress users, we’ve created a separate help doc to walk you through the process here.

As always, if you have questions, leave a note in the comments section, visit our helpdesk or drop us a line at We’re excited to hear what you think!

  • Hi, Danny. How can I add this follow buttons in a single page in my website. Try in my account, but can’t receive the “div” code. Thanks in advance =)

  • Is there a way to edit only the CSS on the follow buttons? I am trying to adjust the margins for the follow buttons only.

      Hello There!

      Yes, it is absolutely possible to adjust/edit the CSS on the follow buttons! If you are familiar with how CSS works or are working with a designer, they are not “locked” in anyway into their default configurations. Depending on your needs they are fully adjustable!


  • DeST

    hi, Can you add a follow button for the personal newsletter?
    Or maybe the possibility to place a link and image button completely customizable?
    thanks a lot

    Hello! It is a great application, but you have one hidden error.
    For example, here, in Russia, we have few local social networks –, etc. But your service don’t let a possibilities to install sharing buttons for it.
    Maybe you can add any “cusomisable” buttons for local networks? Users can upload/link images for buttons, add name and link and start using you share bars with better efficiency.

    Thank you

    • cseher

      Hello there!

      Thank you for your comment! We actually do currently offer the follow service, which is available in the follow button customization menu!

      We have not yet added those other two services to our offering, due to their being more regionally specific services!

      Thank you though, and we will add them to the list for consideration!


      • Dmitry Braverman

        Thank you, but it will be easier for all if you share algorythm for loacal social network customisation, because you have limited resources on unlimited local social networks number ;o)

  • Great buttons! I just installed it on my website. I only wish the YouTube icon would actually have the words YouTube in it like other icon’s I’ve seen. The current YouTube icon is slightly smaller from the rest of them. And what if you have a second YouTube channel? I wish I could add two of these icons. And maybe Deviant Art can be added too. One feature I wish it had is a resizable option where we can control how big we want the icons to be similar to what WiseStamp has. I love that we can drag the icons to easily rearrange them. Thanks again for these wonderful buttons :))

  • Fayssal Bel

    can you also add Beatport & iTunes (for artist) please ??
