Hi, I would like to request that your social media settings allow us to provide a Follow Us or Follow Me “header” so that we can differentiate the sharing opportunity from Share This type functionality. I would also love to have the choice to place this as a widget in the side bar or bigger in the forth footer column. THANKS!
There are numerous plugins offering the “share X” feature inside posts. There are also numerous plugins that let you add social icons (under any title you want) in any widget area (including the sidebar and the footer columns).
The functionality provided by the theme to add social icons in the header and the absolute bottom footer is complementary to that provided by the plugins.
