The Volusion Product Team is excited to announce new enhancements to social sharing buttons for your product pages, including the addition of the Google +1 button!
If we’ve learned two things about social media, it’s this:
- Social media is a vital marketing tool
- People like to talk about and share products – but only if you make it easy for them
With the spirit of these truths in mind, we’ve recently reworked our social sharing buttons for product pages on all V11 stores.
As an improvement to our AddThis integration, we’ve updated your product sharing buttons to be cleaner and more relevant to major social channels. Now your customers will have the option to share your product via Facebook, Twitter, Email and even with the new Google +1 button.
Furthermore, you can use this addition with our current Facebook “Like” and “Send” buttons.

Here’s what it looks like:
And this is what you see when you have the Facebook “Like” button enabled:
And now with both the Facebook “Like” and “Send” buttons enabled:
We hope that you’ll enjoy this new addition and that it will help you gain a larger social presence. Remember that this feature is only available on the latest version our software, so if you haven’t made the upgrade to V11, here’s another reason to do so!
