If you have a page on any of the major social media platforms (Facebook, Google, Yelp, etc), they can be a great way to drive traffic to and from your site and keep web-based visitors within your business's online eco-system! This article will teach you how to add social media links to your GoSite website through the GoSite Sites Editor.
Note: The GoSite Sites Editor is currently accessible through a desktop computer only. You cannot edit your website through the mobile app on Iphone, Android, or Tablets.

Adding Social Media Links to Your Website
Note: Social media links can be added to any section of a website except the header or the banner (main photo at the top of your page).
Hover your mouse over the section that you would like to add the social media button(s) to and click on the pencil icon.
On the left-hand side under “Widgets”, find the “Social” widget and drag it to where you would like to place your social icons.
Click on each of the icons to bring up the "Social Icons Settings" on the left-hand side.
Note: The GoSite Sites Editor currently has icons for Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google Plus, Youtube, Yelp, LinkedIn, and Houzz.
For each Social Link, enter your business's personal URL link (if you have one) for that platform (i.e. yelp.com/gosite).
To edit which Social Links will be shown, find the platform in the dropdown menu and click on the slider to turn it on or off.
You can also edit the appearance of your icons based on your liking.
Once you have added a link to your button, make sure to press "Save" and then "Publish" to push your changes live!
