Adding your social media links allows you to stay connected with your audience outside of your website.

Generally, your audience will be more likely to follow you on social media rather than visiting your website on daily basis, so adding social media links so that they can stay updated and learn more about your business can be very beneficial.


 To update your social media links: 

Step One: Select page and canvas that contain the social media icons

Step Two: Click once on first icon

Step Three: Select Click Actions from the Icon Settings Menu

Step Four: Ensure that Link Type is set to URL

Step Five: Enter URL for Social Media Profile/Page: include full URL e.g.

Step Six: Make sure the checkbox ‘Open in New Window’ has been selected. We don’t want to be directing your website visitors away from your website entirely – Selecting this checkbox allows users to remain on your site once they have clicked on the icon

Step Seven: Select Do Not Follow if desired. Clicking on this checkbox will tell Google and other search engines to ignore this link.

Step Eight: We can then repeat the steps for the remaining icons
