Add Social Media Links (Facebook, Twitter & Linked In) to Your Website the quick and easy way

There are many ways to add links to social media sites on your web site or email. This method is a quick and easy way to place a linked icon that drives people to your social media page on Facebook, Twitter, WordPress and/or Linked In.

The method will use a standard jpg file for the link icon and the html (web page) reference for your social media account.

Here are four icons that can be downloaded and used for your webpage or email links. Just right click on these and ‘save image as’ to your PC.
