Taking your social media marketing offline

Do social icons make sense in static places?

You've likely seen Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and other social icons in places you can't click them. Social icons first popped up on websites and emails as a quick clickable way to let your web following know where to find you on those social channels.

But now, you can find them on billboards, the sides of moving vehicles, print ads and other non-clickable places. This trend seems to be moving pretty quickly, so we took to our social spaces to find out if this made sense to our followers. We got a lot of interest in the topic – everyone seemed to have an opinion!
