Hi @VeraW95 are you looking for TikTok to be an option for a social media button in your email campaigns, or as an option through our Social Share feature?

I'm happy that Constant Contact has clickable icons for my facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and LinkedIn accounts.  When will Constant Contact have a clickable icon for TikTok?

 

We're just a bunch of dummies at , so if one already exists, please let us know?

Hi @KevinD2439

 

At this time a social icon for TikTok is not available. It is however a feature request we are collecting feedback on. In fact we have merged your post into a larger thread focused on this idea.

Frankie can you tell us what's the status of this request? We really need to add this to our social media buttons in our emails.

Or do you have a workaround? adding the bar is so simple, I'd really prefer to do it that way, especially since you don't let us just create a block by putting in the html code. Need a solution for this while we wait for Constant contact to decide to do it.

Hi @JulieL34

 

We apologize at this time there is not a current time estimate of when this feature will be available. We will however reach out this thread when there are any further updates. The more requests a feature request thread like this receives the higher of a priority it can be given by our Product Team. In the meantime, as a workaround, users have included a clickable image to connect their TikTok accounts.

Can you add a tiktok icon to the string of social media icons  generated through the block for that purpose? It doesn't appear that you can, so what do you recommend? Maybe you could post a sample line of code with dummy urls so we could see a good way to do it to fit in with the general template styles? Since we can't grab the code that's behind the social media block, we can't just edit it and add another platform. The way we are doing it now it sits in a block at the bottom of our email, before the footer block. Looks like this, the white block is the full 600px width.

Hi @JulieL34

 

Being able to include TikTok in this line of social icons is feature we're collecting requests on through this thread. While we do not currently have a time estimate of when it will be available, we will however reach out to this thread with any future updates.
