    Question What is the best way to add social plugins to a website design

    Hi, I want to build a website from scratch without using a CMS or WordPress. I have used both methods before and it is very easy to add a "Find Us On Facebook" plug-in. But I have not done this before with a hand-coded website.

    What will I need to get started? I have installed WAMP on my desktop because I believe I will need PHP for this. The ideal things that I am looking for are a Twitter Feed plug-in, Facebook "Like" plug-in and Vimeo or Youtube video support.

    All the services you mentioned have their own api and should provide you with a code snippet which you can just copy and paste to your code. You can also go for something like addthis.com

    You could also use this http://www.sharethis.com

    and as digital apex said, the various services have their own API. Here is a link to facebook's for their "like" button https://developers.facebook.com/docs.../plugins/like/

    Well you say "follow me". So all you want and need is a img with a link to your facebook page. if you want to alllow leople to share yoir site then, I have always used addthis. But recently it stopped my page loading in ie8 and they would not even respond to me. So I removed it. I was flirting with different ways to add custom social icons on to my site when I discovered using AddToAny (now Lockerz) you can just pop in your own img in the anchor and it will use your I icon. It's actually much faster than addthis and offers many more customizations.
