The Hidden Cost Of Social Sharing

Adding social media buttons can kill your mobile load speed

Although social media has a host of advantages, adding it to your webpage can be costly. Adding social media buttons to your page typically comes at a significant bandwidth hit, which can lower your mobile loading speeds and directly lower your page rank on Google. “Like” and “Follow” buttons come with excessive code that probably should be avoided.

 

Testing certain social media buttons must be done live

When you create a website, you are presenting a certain image to the world. That means that you’ll always want to present your best, because potential customers, clients, and business partners are watching. However, you can’t test social media buttons on local PC intranet. That means you’ll have to test potential site-crashing code live—for everyone to see.

 

 

Letting developers access your website

Another thing that most people don’t realize is that the code from social media buttons can be malicious. Some might redirect your links, bring pop-ups to your site, or even show new advertising that pays them, not you, per click. Also, any JavaScript errors can crash other Java code on your site. You’ll want to check all buttons extensively before using them on your page.
