How to create a social media share button

If you want to share your site on social media, you can create different types of buttons that can do this:

For Facebook:

<a href="https://m.facebook.com/sharer.php?u=yourwebsite.com" title="Share on Facebook" class="social__link" target="_blank" rel="external noopener">Share on Facebook</a>

For LinkedIn:

<a href="https://www.linkedin.com/shareArticle?mini=true&url=yourwebsite.com" title="Share on LinkedIn" class="social__link" target="_blank" rel="external noopener">Share on LinkedIn</a>

For Twitter:

<a href="https://twitter.com/share?url=yourwebsite.com" title="Share on Twitter" class="social__link" target="_blank" rel="external noopener">Share on Twitter</a>

Instagram currently doesn’t allow you to share a photo or video from another website – you can only upload photos/videos directly from your mobile device. Since there is no sharing mechanism, there is no way for us to include a button that will share your content to Instagram.
