A short while ago, we quietly released an update to our Social Sharing element and today we are shouting about it!
We’ve Added Some NEW Social Media Styles To The Social Networking & Social Sharing Elements For The PlusPack.
As you know, social is driving traffic, growing communities and taking over the advertising world, so it makes sense to keep updating our social sharing features, so you can ride the social wave and stay ahead of your competition.
Our new update means you can now have social icons like Gary Vee.
Grow your Snapchat following and tell more people about your Snapsterpieces like Mplatco.
Use Pinterest to increase your 4.9M follower count like Steph with her hairstyles.
However you choose to use it, you will grow your social following. You can create an ever linking circle to and from your social accounts using our latest social styles.

As you can see, we styled the icons to increase click-throughs and made it easier than ever for you to show social links throughout your pages.
The New Elements
Each element has a few options for colours and text styling. There are two new elements.
- Social Networking – This element creates icons and lets you link to your social networks.
- Social Sharing – This element allows people to share the page you set when they click on the icon.
So remember one links out, two shares your page.
Both can be very powerful but used differently.
Social Networks Styles
We created 3 New Social Network styles.
Social Sharing Styles
There are 4 new Social Sharing styles.
How To Style The Social Networking Element
Search the elements for “social” and choose the networking option.
The Network styles will work on pages with columns and split columns.
Chose a style.
Add a colour to the icon:
Enter in the links to your networks.
Some of the designs allow you to remove the text or open links in a new window (recommended).
Other styles can control the Social Network background and icon colour:
To change these colours on this style:
How To Style The Social Sharing Element
To use the new social sharing styles, search for “social” in the “add element” window.
Scroll to the bottom and choose one of the new styles.
Set the page URL you want people to share. It’s a good idea to enter your landing page URL here, especially if you have Social Sharing icons on your thank you pages.
Some let you style the colour by Dark or Light.
Other styles allow you to set the colour.
