Social sharing is important to businesses trying to build their brand and grow their business: and in today’s social media landscape social proof is demonstrated by:
- retweet on Twitter
- Like on Facebook
- +1 on Google Plus
- Like on LinkedIn
It’s easy to acknowledge a well-written article by using a social share button on a blog post, but sometimes after seeing social share buttons on every post and article, we get a bit of social share fatigue and simply block out seeing even prominently displayed social share buttons.
