What is the purpose of a social icon?

As we have anticipated, the social icon is not a simple drawing to be placed on our website, but a fundamental tool that allows us to perform various operations. These icons are a very powerful tool because they can allow an article to reach hundreds of more readers. The more people will share our post and the more our audience will expand.

Social networks nowadays are essential for every person, in fact, we live with our smartphones glued to our hands. Each of us reads and shares content that we have found on social networks and the web gives us a considerable number of options. So if you have a website you must allow users to share your content on the major social networks used today.

To do this all you need to do is integrate a social media icon plugin into your online site and find the right location for it. Finding the right position for your social icons, within your website, will help you ensure more shares and interactions.

The position is often underestimated and we insert the icons where we think best, but our choice may depend on the number of visitors who will read one of our articles or see one of our products.

To what do we owe the choice of icons

The choice of icons is not made at random. In fact, we must consider several factors in choosing which icons we want to use. For example, on which social network we are interested in being present but also in what area we are located or rather where our users come from.

There are social networks that are famous worldwide such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, but there are also social networks that are popular only in certain areas of the world, such as WeChat, which is used mainly in China, or Pinterest in USA.

So also according to the type of audience you want to attract and the users who travel to your website you will have to choose the type of icons you are going to use. Let’s see in the next paragraphs the most used social buttons in the world and especially in Italy.

Facebook

If you have a website you can’t,  not consider the option of inserting a Facebook social button. Facebook is used all over the world and every day there are billions of people who use it. 

Instagram & WhatsApp

These two social networks have become very popular and more and more people are using them so they are not to be underestimated and to be integrated into the list of social networks to be exploited.

Twitter

Twitter is another of the most used social networks in the world and thanks to its icon we can share an article in a short tweet.
