How to use breakpoints (mobile and desktop)

Breakpoints are basically where a responsive media query kicks in. A media query is used to show or hide things based on the resolution of a screen.

For example, let’s say you are using the Floating Bar social share buttons. It will stick to the left side of the screen. But if you size down the browser, at some point it will disappear. A breakpoint is what controls where this happens based on the width of the screen.
