Where to place Social Media Buttons

This is a common question to all, but the answer is very complicated and sometimes very confusing than it might seem at first. Places vary person to person, whether it is developer or owner. Some say button should be at the top, some say it should be at the bottom or middle.

What if I say these buttons will show on the every landing page. Interesting..??
Yeah, you read it right. Now social media buttons can be available at your every page on the website.

Now the question is – if it is on every page so where to place that looks suitable and do not annoy the visitor?
The study says visitor’s eyes move to the right corner a little more than other parts of the web page. So,

    • Utilize that space to show your social presence and contact details (email id or phone number), do not place that valuable buttons on the footer. But,
    • In some cases, you do so if you do not have to scroll down the page to see the one.
