Iconic: New WordPress tool for social media integration

If you’re a converged communicator in one of the program’s numerous blog-based courses (that’s including, but not limited to, DIG3286, RTV4403, RTV3303, and DIG3153), there’s a good chance you’ve wondered about the best way to integrate social media with your blog. Yes, there are ways of including a Twitter feed or Facebook timeline, using relatively simple coding. But for those who aren’t interested in working with a little HTML, or just prefer a quicker, smoother approach, WordPress has rolled out a new widget that makes connecting your WordPress blog to your social media accounts much easier.

The new tool: The Social Media Icons widget. This unobtrusive widget enables bloggers to add the icons of multiple social networks to their blogs and configure these feeds for easy visibility. At the moment, the widget supports Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, LinkedIn, GitHub, YouTube, and Vimeo, but others can be added as well through HTML. For more information, WordPress has (not surprisingly) a blog post all about the new feature.
