Hi,

Here are instructions to add social media icons to your website.
  1. Click Websites Manager in the left navigation menu. Then, click Edit Site.


  2. Click Insert in the top toolbar and select Follow Us Link.



  3. In the Social Networking Account Information window select the social networks you'd like to set up. Each time you click an option it'll ask you for the URL to the corresponding social media page.




  4. Drag the social media icons to the area you would like them to appear on your webpage.


  5. Save and Publish your website to see the changes take effect online.

Hope that helps!

I went though this process and I can see the icons on my edit page, however after I added the URL then save it and publish it, can't see it on the website. How can I fix this?

Hi Keith1091,

I apologize for the delay - It looks like your social network icons are visible and working on your website.

Let me know if I can help with anything.

Thanks,
Ehsan

I was able to add the buttons but they are so small. Is there a way to make the buttons bigger?

Hi Pam6198,

Welcome to the community!

Unfortunately you cannot make the icons bigger within Sitebuilder. However, if you find other icons that are bigger and would prefer to use, you can add them as regular images on your website and then link them to your social network pages.

To link an image to another website, simply click on the image > click the link button in the properties editor on the right hand side and enter the url for where it should link to.

I hope this info helps, thanks!
