Home Forums Other Displaying Social Media Links/Icons Re: Displaying Social Media Links/Icons


As a visitor, if I see social media buttons at the top (above the ‘fold’) I assume that the site is desperate for approval or to get noticed especially if they are large buttons.

If they are at the footer then I see it as “We’re there and if you like us feel free to let your friends know”.

As a prime example…see CSS-Tricks home page.

Where are the links (and not even icons)?…In the footer.
