social media icons

I'd like to be able to scale the social media icons so that they don't dominate the whole page.

Hello @FreshPFC. Here is how you can change the size of your social media icons:

 

1. Hover over the icon that you would like to change the size of and click Change

2. From here, you can choose the size of the icon that you would like displayed in your block.

That menu is no longer available in the new "See n Say" layout editor.  Just this:

Hello @FreshPFC,

 

I apologize for the confusion on our part. It is correct in the new editor you cannot adjust the size of the social media icons. This is great feedback for our developers and I'll make sure to pass it along.

This is just one of many features that was lost when Constant Contact "updated" their product.  Why in the world would you remove features with a new version?  Poorly planned, clearly no user input, and a roll out that would make Microsoft proud--patching the holes as you go instead of having it user ready from the outset.

Hello @FreshPFC. I'm sorry that you are not able to resize the social media icons in your campaign. The icons should be responsive to the size of the screen on which the campaign is viewed but I can understand why you like to have more control and be able to resize these icons. I will submit feedback for this request.

How do we change the actual I con image? I want to use all black or all grey as these are too bright and are taking over my EDM campaign.

Hi @AmyY330. Within the product, you can't change the color of the icons. However, you can upload images of social media icons in the colors that you want and you can make them linkable to the appropriate social media page.

I tried to upload my own but I can't add them into the same image block. Is there another way to do it? I need to add heaps.

Hello @AmyY330, thank you for your response. You can stack the images on top of each other, but we do not have the ability to put multiple images next to each other at this time. This is great feedback and I have submitted the idea to our product team.

I need this function too.  We have 2 different facebook accounts and the new editor won't allow you to have 2 on the line.  I have to stack them which takes up lots of space on the page and looks crappy on a mobile.

Please change this!!

 

Hi @LeeD739,

 

I can understand how stacking those icons is inconvenient for you, and I'm sorry that currently there isn't a way to add in multiple Facebook social buttons in the same block. I am happy to pass along your feedback to our developers. Your feedback is very valuable to us, and it does help us give our customers the kind of Constant Contact experience they would like to see. There is a work-around in the meantime; you can add in your own social media icons to the Library, insert them side by side in the campaign, and then link them to the appropriate URL. Let us know if we can do anything else to help!

@Gwendolyn_B I'm struggling with this issue as well, and can't seem to find a solution. I have tried your suggested workaround: adding in social media images via the library, and inserting them side by side. However, there is no way to make them "side by side". They're close neighbors, if anything. The image below shows how close I am realistically able to get our social icons, and I would not consider them "side by side".

Would love to know if this is being addressed by the Constant Contact developers, or if there is a different solution that someone would be able to provide. We are unable to use the default social icons because SlideShare isn't one of the icons given. 

Hi @AlexH0669,


Thanks for your feedback about this and I understand what you mean by "close neighbors". We apologize the spacing can't be any closer but want to reassure you that we are collecting feedback for our programmers about this and I've passed along yours. The only option at this time would be to utilize a layout with multiple columns and then insert each icon into a separate column.
