Many brands place them at the bottom of their Web pages, even below their disclaimers and policy statements.
Who do you expect to find them down there? Do you know anyone who scrolls to the bottom, or even bothers to look past the footer text on a page? Probably not. So, why would you want to put links to your social media profiles all the way at the bottom?
Where to put your social media buttons
The best place is the top right corner of your website with your RSS feed. An even better place would be in the website’s header next to your logo or contact information, if that is where you have it.
