Social

The Social particle makes it easy to create and place a component on the frontend that add social elements to your pages. This particle can each be placed anywhere on the page to enable visitors to simply find and subscribe to your site's associated social media pages.

The Social Buttons particle enables you to quickly and easily add text and/or icon-based links to your various social media accounts. This includes virtually any link from Twitter and Facebook to an RSS feed, and even your email address.

Gantry has built-in support for FontAwesome, which gives you access to a wide variety of social media icons you can quickly add to your particle to make your social buttons stand out.
