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 support@shareaholic.com. We’re excited to hear what you think!

    Hello Carlos,

    What platform are you using? Using the links below, you’ll see that the process is slightly different depending on your platform.

    That being said, if you let me know I can help you make sure you can generate the correct code and get those buttons onto the page you would like them on.

    Perhaps you’d be willing to email me directly? cameron@shareaholic.com

    Sincerely,

    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!

    Thanks,

    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

    Guys, I like shareholic. But I don’t use it. Because the count doesn’t work on MOD’x when I share my content via VK (Vkontakte). I would like to khow are you going to solve this problem?

  • I use it because it’s perfectly built – the graphics are perect to and me is happy (lol) :))

  • Add Disqus follow button please.

    • @VeteranSoldier:disqus Added to our list to add! thank you for the suggestion.

  • cseher

    Hello there!

    Thank you for your comment! We actually do currently offer the VK.com 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!

    Sincerely,

    • 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 than 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 :))

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