Social Share bar

Social Share bar

Lets have the

Social Share Links InfoSocial Media Sharebar
from the header also be an option in the footer. REASON for it in the footer: so that it doesn't mess up the preview line of text that appears in many email clients.
When the links are included in the "header" they show up as the first thing in the body of the email, ahead of the live text "preheader" - rendering it useless!
If it is at the bottom of the email, the preheader can do its job.
 
Thanks!!

The Beta mobile creator does not allow me the ability to add the Social Share bar at the top of the emails. This is a huge need.

under "Having trouble viewing..." are the social link buttons. I didn't realize that if clicked on you can share. A great enhancement would be to make the button say share. Example: "F share" so the Facebook button would actually have the word share in it.

It would be helpful and more appealing in my eyes to have the share bar option in the footer. I would rather it be at the bottom of the newsletters rather than the top..especially since most of the emails we sent are viewed via mobile phone --it takes up too much of the top of the email. Thanks for your time!

It would be helpful to have the ability for our contacts to be able to share things from our campaigns easily on their social media outlets. For example, if they found an item they might want to share, if they could click on it and have it connect directly to their Facebook page or Twitter feed and them share it with a click, that would be fantastic.

 

Thanks,

Stop taking away the Social Media Share option in the header!  We use it all the time and you guys periodically remove it as an option...PLEASE STOP DOING THIS!  LEAVE THE SOCIAL MEDIA SHARE OPTION IN YOUR HEADER!

The old templates had social share links and "email not viewing correctly" links right at the top. The new templates have no way for our members to easily share our E-blasts. No webpage version, no button for sharing. I would request you please replace those in the new templates. Or come up with a way for recipients to easily share the emails. Thanks!

I'd like to see the social share bar Constant Contact used to offer added back in to the new campaign editor options. 

 

The social share bar is a tremendously beneficial feature for our email recipients to pass information along to their networks on our behalf. 

 

We're a Chamber of Commerce and our committee members like to show their support for our announcements and events by sharing our emails and invitations on their social media networks. Now that the bar is gone, they're unable to offer that simple, but very helpful, demonstration of support for us.
