Will we be getting the new facebook icon?

Hi.

In templates you have the option to embed a "Like" icon. It sounds like these icons are being redesigned/updated - when will these be available in CM? Do we know?

Thanks.

Hi there Kris2, good question! We currently use the "f" iconography for our social sharing links in templates, so we won't likely be changing this. However, you're more than welcome to get the new icons for use in your newsletters :) Thanks for the heads up on this change!

Hi Ros - just want to check i'm understanding you correctly. At the moment you can "insert" social sharing, in any editable area. This has a default icon style. Are you saying we can customise this to be whatever like/tweet icon we want?


I have been in love with Campaign Monitor since 2012.

Ultimately it is just a hyperlinked image. You can use any image and any hyperlink in your campaigns. The like/tweet buttons/images are just there for convenience.

Put the like/tweet icon in your email and view the source code. Simply change the image source to use your own alternate image. The image you use would have to be hosted somewhere however.

Yes, JohnP is correct - you can add any content you like between social sharing tags - we have a good example here in our docs. :)
