If you want to get rid of social media buttons from your site, you may be wondering how to remove them. Here are a few tips:
Don’t place social sharing buttons too close to the navigation. You’ll confuse your users if they accidentally click them when trying to navigate the site. Also, don’t put them too far away from the content. A good rule of thumb is that the social share buttons should be close to the content, but not too far away from it. In other words, they shouldn’t be hidden. This is one of the most common mistakes website owners make.
If you’re unsure how to delete the social media buttons from your website, the easiest way is to install a new full-width theme. These themes are available as free and paid themes. To get the full-width theme, navigate to the PERSONALIZE menu in the Customizer. Scroll down until you see ‘Social Media’ and click the edit button. If the icons still appear on your site, you can remove them by deleting their respective icons.
Another option is to add the latest tweets from your Twitter account in the footer. You’ll need to list your store’s Twitter username in the footer. You can see “ShopifyandYou” on our screenshot. Click on the Apply Changes button and double-check your links. You can also get rid of social media buttons on your site by following the steps above. Just make sure to check all the social media links again before you publish the new version.
