Better Social Share Buttons

The Issue: Adding the option to create social share buttons would be great. I understand we have Twitter, Facebook and Google Plus.

But they lack design flexibility, and the current method of using embedded code is an extra step away from the purpose of Webflow: to easily see and adapt your design/workflow.

We know how important social shares contribute to link building and rankings, so it would be great to see them be taken more seriously. 

 

Potential Solution: Provide a Social Media Link Element. It won't be styled. Instead, it will be an option just like the Link Block Element. You can choose which social platform to share to (Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Tumblr, Google + and so on), and whether it be in a new tab or a pop-up window. 

For example, designers can then add this box to a div with their Font Awesome Twitter icon.

 

Thanks for taking the time to consider this.

    You can currently do this with some basic custom coding.  Check out this blog post for more information. Hope this helps. :)
