Getting Social Buttons

One of the biggest hindrances of going to new media is a lack of linking tools. Tonight, I took some of the logos of my favorite sites and edited them down to 120x120.


If you like these button sized images, you can download a zip of them here.

For my site, I wanted these buttons in the upper right, in a tight space. I used some code to get them down to 42x42.

The code is pretty straight forward:

<div>
<a href="your link here" target="_blank"></a><
<img alt="A description of image" src="Image.png" style="border: 0; height: 42px; width: 42px;" />
</div>

If 42px is too big or small, go ahead and change it. The target="_blank" opens the link in a new tab. You can delete it. I happen to like how that works, so I use it. But some people believe that it causes new users NOT to return to your site via the back button and leave frustrated. It is really up to you.
