Traditionally, our social media button packs include icons for common sites such as Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter and Google+, but this new WordPress buttons pack of Blue Glyph Social Buttons contains other sites and apps such as Fancy, Quora, FoodSpotter and Svpply. We weren’t as familiar with these services so we decided to take a look and see what they are all about.
FoodSpotting is an app for android and iPhone which allows users to find & share great dishes, not just restaurants. Their website says you can find whatever you’re craving, see what’s good at any restaurant and learn what foodspotters, friends and experts love wherever you go.
Similar to Pinterest, Fancy allows users to make catalogues of products and favorite things, but the difference is everything on the site is for sale. Another big difference between Fancy and Pinterest is that the main target here is male consumers. So 60% of Fancy users are men, compared to an 80% female crowd on Pinterest.
While Fancy is meant for shopping, Quora is the go to place for questions. This network is all about sharing information from the web and writing new content to share with users of similar interests.Quora has been compared to Wikipedia, except it specifically for questions and answers and it has a social aspect that Wikipedia doesn’t have. You have followers and following. You can follow subjects, you can follow questions, you can follow people. All the things you are following end up in your stream.
Svpply introduces itself as a curated collection of the world’s best products and stores. Also a social network for shopping, Svpply (pronounced “Supply”) is the online version of window shopping and businesses are able to feature their products to more targeted users at a minimal cost.
This pack buttons for 28 social media sites and apps, including the ones we have talked about as well as all of the mainstream sites. If you use a social media outlet that is new or not as common, please let us know and we’ll try to include it in our next social buttons pack. Enjoy!
Like all of our WordPress buttons packs, this set is just $5 or you can choose 10 packs for $25 and score an awesome deal!
