Drupal 9 Social Media Modules
Social media is a powerful way to generate traffic that doesn’t rely on search engine results. It can boost website visits and engagement by driving traffic from visitors that would otherwise never visit.
Drupal has some awesome social media modules that make it easy to link with different social platforms. Let’s take a look at them.
Drupal 9’s social media modules offer a variety of ways to enable sharing across various platforms. One of these is the AddToAny module, which features a universal share button, Facebook (share and like), Twitter, Pinterest, Reddit, SMS, and email. These buttons use AddToAny vector icons, which load efficiently, are mathematically precise, and are scalable to any size.
The module’s settings page enables you to customize the display of these icons for different content types and regions. You can also choose which networks appear before the universal share icon, and select a default link attribute.
Social Media Icons
Social Media Icons is a Drupal module that offers an easy way to add “Follow us” or similar buttons on your website. It provides a configurable block that displays links (icons) to profiles on popular social networking sites and supports various icon sets of all sizes. It also allows site editors to configure their own social networks in the block via a simple, intuitive Block UI. It is also compatible with Panels, which means that the block can be placed on any article page and will always appear there (provided it has a proper layout).
