Sharing blog posts on social media
When you post about your business and products on a blog, you are increasing your online presence. This helps search engines to find your site. Learn more about adding a blog to your Shopify online store.
If you already have an audience online and want to start selling there, then use the Buy Button sales channel to add your Shopify products to blog posts on other platforms.
To get the most out of social media, you need to do more than share your products. Create and share blog content that is relevant to your customers to build brand loyalty and encourage customers to talk about your business.
Sharing buttons appear on published blog posts.
Linking to your social media profiles

Some themes come with social media buttons, so you can direct customers to your social media profiles. You can search for social media in the Theme Store to see themes that have this feature.
Adding more social media features
To add other social media features to your online store, search for an app on the Shopify App Store that does what you need, or customize your theme code.
