Social Networking Widgets

We've built a few tools to make it easier for you to embed your social media accounts (Twitter, Facebook and Google + along with the "Add this" social bookmarking service) into your website. These widgets are now available as components in all Zeald's website products for you to add in LiveEdit mode to any page.


Social Bookmarking component: "Add this"

"Add this" is a service that lets users of your site bookmark a page and share it with friends via hundreds of different online services. To put this on your website page you can add the "AddThis" component:

Facebook page

If you use Facebook, you should create a Facebook page about your business (Create a Facebook page). Once you do this, you can add the "Facebook Like Box" component to embed this onto a page of your website:
