Novashare comes with a follow buttons block so that users can easily connect with you on your favorite social media networks. No more refreshing or having to deal with legacy widgets or shortcodes. You can quickly add and customize this anywhere on your site (via the Block Editor, Customizer, or Widgets screen). Check out the block in action on our demo.
The follow block includes the following 58 buttons and networks.
- Apple Music
- Hacker News
- Paper Plane
- Stack Overflow
