I was looking forward to Word Press 5.4 released on 31st March.

I was curious what goodies were in store as new features.

WAhoooooo......

It has a social icon block. Thank you, Word Press.

Social Icons Block

This Social Icons block allows you to add social media icons in your posts and pages.



You can click on the add button and select a social network that you would like to add.

After that, you can click on the social network icon and provide the link to your profile.

Hold your hurrahs...

After trying the feature, I discovered the following.

This feature only allows you to add social media icons with links to your profiles.

It does not add social sharing buttons.

You still need a social media plugin in order to share your posts.

After using it...

I will give it a smaller,

WAhoooooo......

Thanks for sharing this Stanley. I was so hoping to get rid of the plugin with this new feature... oh well. I guess that is not the case.

I may still play with it to see what it can do. Maybe... just maybe...?

LOL!

Take care of yourself and your family.

Sorry for the false alarm. I was expecting the same. Then my exciting sort of evaporated... 🤯

What a bummer... LOL!

It's good to use them.

That is what it is for... use it! 👍🏼

Yes, instead of installing another plugin, just use it. It's integrated.

I was looking at a bog in the same niche as mine the other day. They had their twitter feed right on the home page. Don't know how he did it but must be some plugin.

I also noticed that the had 35,000 twitter followers. That's got to help with traffic to the blog.

Yes, that is a plug-in and must have build the twitter following for some time...

Yes, I have noticed it and it makes a lot easier to connect in our social group! WP keeps improving for the better.

Yes, I am still going through the new features...
