Social media buttons  – Webflow tutorial

Social Media components can increase user
interaction, drive traffic to your social pages, and add legitimacy to a project. We’ll cover three different components that
are included in the Elements Panel: Facebook, Twitter, and Google Plus. And as a bonus, if we have time at the end,
we’ll cover MySpace. The Facebook component, like other components
we’ll cover, can be dragged in from the Elements Panel to any part of our page. Once we drop in the Facebook component, we
can see our Facebook Settings. Here we can type in or paste in the URL to
our Facebook page. Three options: Standard displays a Like button
plus a text summary. Box also gives us a Like button and shows
us how many likes we have. And finally, Button shows the same information,
collapsed into a single button. You can also manually control the width and
height properties, and this can be helpful if you’re looking to reflow or reposition some of the
text or other content inside the component. And the Locale section lets you specify what
regional settings like language will show up for your audience. That’s the Facebook component. Let’s move on to Twitter. Same idea here when we drag the Twitter component
into our project. This time our settings give us two options:
tweet and follow. Tweet, lets you specify a URL to share and
specific placeholder text when someone presses the Tweet button. Now Show Bubble aesthetically matches the
other bubbles for Facebook and Google Plus, but Twitter no longer reports the Tweet count
so there’s an ellipsis there instead. We also have a large button, which makes the
button large. Finally, vertical does exactly what you might
expect: it stacks vertically. The Follow Button gives us some different
options: we can specify our Twitter handle or username, and choose whether or not to
show the bubble, and of course, we can toggle the Large Button here, too. That’s Twitter. Finally, let’s look at Google Plus. Again, we can specify our URL here, which
is what will get shared by those people using Google Plus. Layout options specify size, or in the case
of Tall, the positioning of the component. And the +1 Count can be displayed as a bubble
(as you see here), inline, or not at all. That’s Google Plus. Finally we’ll look at MySpace—And that’s
all the time we have. So, you can easily add social media components
right to your project…for Facebook, Twitter, and Google Plus.

  1. This video is still on your website in the Webflow University. Personally I find this alarming since its so out dated, what does that say about you as company? I suggest if you want "webslow" to be a leader in website building, that you get on to this. No-one has touched My Space in years and where on earth is instagram?
