Social Media Tip of the Day: Assess your widget usage
It can be tempting to use many widgets on your blog or Website “just because you can” – but that may not be the best plan…
The widgets and badges you place on your site should be part of your overall social media strategy. They should be in line with specific objectives, for instance:
- Highlighting your Social Web presence
- Promoting products or services
- Enhancing your reader’s experience
Create your own objectives based on your strategy to assess whether a widget or badge is necessary. Sites can start to look cluttered with too many widgets.
