What am I missing? I'm including the Social Share to readers' pages buttons in my campaign but when I preview the email or click on these icons in the test email, it goes directly to a Constant Contact article.

Hello @MBeck ,

 

Those social media share links don't function until the email has been sent out live, similar to how View as Webpage doesn't work till then. This is because those links rely on the email having a unique URL generated for it upon sending for real.
