Nowadays, it is impossible to imagine our society without social media. You can use them to for example notify your customers about the latest news, or share interesting promotions. You can add social media options, such as the Facebook Like or AddThis button, to your pages through GENERAL > Settings > Social media > Facebook in the left menu of the back office.
Social media options
SEOshop provides standard integration with Facebook. Navigate to GENERAL > Settings > Social media > Facebook in the left menu of the back office and tick the Activate check box, whereupon a Like button will be displayed with all your products. Using this button, customers can share your products through Facebook. The products in question will be displayed on their Facebook wall and are thus visible to all their friends. You do not need a Facebook account yourself to activate this option.
You can connect your Twitter account to your online store, through GENERAL > Settings > Social media > Twitter in the left menu of the back office, whereupon a Twitter button will appear underneath your products. Using this button, customers are able to follow your tweets.

Using the Pin-it Button, customers are able to place images from your online store in their Pinterest account. Each image contains a link to the original source, so visitors will not only spread your product images but also the link to your online store.
Navigate to GENERAL > Settings > Social media > Pinterest to activate the Pin-it button. You do not need a Pinterest account yourself to activate this option.
AddThis enables your visitors to spread your product pages in many different ways. Thus you will need one button only to allow circulation through Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and other social media. However, to do so, you will need an AddThis account. Enter the email address used for registration with AddThis in the Account field and subsequently tick the Status check box to make the AddThis button visible in your online store.

Subsequently tick the Status check box to make the social media button of VKontante visible in your online store.
Additional social media
The options mentioned above are intended for sharing products and content through your customers’ social media channels.
