Here's what we have so far.  You folks would like to see newer buttons and more options for each social network.  Here are the social sites we have been asked about.  Are there others you want to see?

1) Facebook
2) Google+
3) Linkedin
4) Twitter
5) Pinterest
6) Yelp

Any others out there that might be good to have?

Twitter icon outdated & would like to see Pinterest added.


The Twitter icon on the Homestead SiteBuilder Plus is outdated - it's currently the "t" when it should be the Twitter bird. Also we would like to see the Pinterest icon added.

Add a Yelp Button to Site Builder.


Any plans to add a YELP button on website builder as we have with Google+, Twitter and FaceBook buttons? I find a demand for this button and the competition such as Wix, Weebly, Wordpress, 1and1, Web.com make it available. Thanks!

I have used Homestead website builder for a web company that I have worked for and have made over 100 Homestead websites in the last two years.  I have also used Weebly, Wix, GoDaddy and others so I have I good feel for dashboards and improvements during this time.  I have yet to see a single meaningful improvement to Homestead's website builder.  I have asked for the same questions about improvements to keep up with the competition and all we ever get is "Great suggestion! We are looking into it."  I look forward to a major upgrade in Homestead so it will be in the majors and not get left be hind with little league websites - could this be a reason why Google ended your relationship and as they went with StartLogic for the GYBO campaign?

Hi Gabe2535, you make a good point.  Under the wing of Intuit, they chose to not do as much as we would have liked, and asked for.  Since the sale we have been migrating everything to new platforms by contractual requirement. 

Believe me, we are not where we want to be, but we have things that need to be completed first.  Fortunately, we are getting closer.  Hopefully, we will get on track soon.

Google did not end their relationship with us per se.  Startlogic is owned by the same company that owns Homestead.  It was created to spin off the GYBO customers.  We are still all part of the same whole.

Thanks

I would like to see Instagram included. 

Businesses which provide products and services in the wedding industry are using that platform more often. I would definitely like to keep up with the competition in that regard. 

Thanks!

Adding an Instagram button would be beneficial as well

Instagram is the new Facebook -- we need a follow us button!

The request for new social media buttons was made one year ago in 2016 and in 2017 I still do not see INSTAGRAM. Please add.

It appears that this thread is quite old ... Instagram, ability to easily add Yelp, Pinterest. It would be great to get an update as to the status of these requests.

It has not been a particularly requested item, probably because it is so easy to get the HTML from the accounts and add it that way. We do keep an eye of these topics, but at this time it isn't a high priority as you have the alternative.

I would love to be able to add an Instagram feed to my website.  The link you provided only accomplishes adding one post from Instagram.  What I really want is a live feed, like you can add with Facebook and Twitter.
