Update to Social Sharing Buttons

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterPin on PinterestShare on RedditShare on LinkedIn

We’re about to update the position and appearance of social sharing buttons on all item pages to unify their appearance and make them more prominent.

What are we changing?

  • Instead of using a third party plugin, we will implement our own social sharing buttons, allowing us to present a more branded visual direction for Envato Market
  • The position of the social sharing buttons beneath each item image is more prominent than the previous sidebar location
  • We removed the share count, as the majority of items have very low sharing counts or none whatsoever. Low (or no) share figures might be incorrectly perceived as an indicator of low quality and could persuade some users from buying it.

Here are some screenshots:
