What is a social sharing icon?

A social sharing icon contains a URL of your website. Users visiting your website can share the URL on multiple social media platforms. Visitors to your website can share it with a single click rather than going through the lengthy procedure of copying the URL and creating content before sharing it. Social platforms are the largest source of traffic for e-commerce businesses. On average, people spend 2.5 hours on social networking platforms. While reviewing products or watching something interesting, I share it with my friends.

Consider the following scenario: You browse a website with interesting items for sale, but the share icons are hidden. It will be difficult for a user to open a new tab, log in to the desired social site, and then copy the URL to share. Most users will not do that and will leave your website without sharing it with anyone.

If you're putting in the time and effort to create a website, it's wise to include URLs to share on social websites with a single click. Fynd Platform offers the Social Share extension to configure and add social icons on your website.


  1. 50+ social icons to add to your website.
  2. Engaging design with laptop, tablet, and mobile compatibility.
  3. Fully customisable icons, configure colour, shapes, layouts, etc.

Let's understand how to configure Social Share extension on your website.

1. Layout configuration

There are two layout options: Default and Fixed Banner. The default setup option provides an easy setting with no complex layout modification options. Configure social icons by choosing the orientation, icon size, and app width.
