Another social icon to add, would be the text icon for people to register to receive text messages from a company/organization. Thanks!

Hi @lindseyvqc

 

Thanks for sharing this feedback with us! Does inserting a button connected to a sms-opt in form help fit your needs? Here's how you can access its shareable URL.

Thanks for the info. We already have an SMS service so I wanted to link to ours.

Hi @lindseyvqc

 

Thanks for following up with us on this! Because you are using an SMS service of your own we would like to collect a few more details on how you would expect this link to work. Would it connect to a phone number? Or an outside webpage?

An outside webpage

Hi @lindseyvqc

 

Thanks for clarifying this for us! The workaround we recommend is to manually create an icon by uploading an image of your desired logo and then linking that image to the correct webpage. For now, we are going to leave this post in our new Gathering Information status and encourage other users to vote or comment for this idea if this feature would be useful to them as well.

We could really use a podcast icon (generic - not for a specific platform) among the options of social follow icons.

Hi everyone. Since the initial post, TikTok and Pinterest were added to the Social Follow block. There are no plans at this time to add additional social channels but we'll keep the feature request open if we have updates to share.

Another vote for allowing custom icons to be uploaded into the social follow block. There could be empty buttons that could have any properly sized icon uploaded into them by the user and linked to platforms not covered by the standard options. As a workaround, we manually dropped linked icon images into our template, but it looks silly since they can't be lined up with the existing social follow block.
