There is no denying that social media is integral to every business. It allows you to build awareness around your brand, drive traffic and generate leads to your website, as well as connect with your audience.
But how can you integrate social media when you are using Wix as your website builder?
Do not worry! We have listed down 12 tools that you can use to seamlessly turn your website into a social hub:
1. Social Media Stream
Developed by SmartFox, Social Media Stream allows you to showcase all of your posts from Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, Pinterest, and Tumblr in a stunning widget.
As a result, your website visitors can see all of your real-time updates across your social media accounts. And when we say “real-time,” it means that this Wix app has insanely quick refresh rates.
The good news? Your site visitors can view your social media stream whether on desktop, tablet, or mobile!
Here’s where you can add social media streams from:
- Facebook: Pages or personal profile
- Twitter: User account or hashtags
- Instagram: User account or hashtags
- YouTube: Personal account, channel, or playlist
- Pinterest: User account or a particular board
- Tumblr: User account or blog post
2. Social Media Icons
If you would like a free tool to help you link the majority (if not all) of your social media accounts on your website, then Social Media Icons is what you need.
This Wix app features customizable official icons of popular social media sites. This means that you can choose between a round or square icon, adjust its size, choose a different background and fill color, add hover effects, and display it vertically or horizontally.
This functionality could come in handy when building your social media marketing campaign.

4. Smart Social Icons
When visitors click on a social media icon on your website, what happens is that that they are redirected to the social media site. But with Smart Social Icons, they do not need to open a new browser window to check out your page.
