Buttons are little icons that can take people to your social media pages, or to a a tool that allows the viewer to share the page to their friends on their own social media sites. A share bar is a bar that goes on the side or bottom of your webpage. It usually has several buttons all together. A nice example can be found at The Arc of Baltimore’s website.
