Can anyone recommend an app or platform they use for social sharing. I am really looking for the pin it button that a customer can click directly on when hoover over an image from the collections page or the product page itself. A pinterest button that is embedded into the image....

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi, Laurie!

I’m Melissa, a Shopify Guru. Thanks for posting

There are some social sharing apps available, which allow you to add the Pinterest button. Like social sharing and social shopwave. However, this button would then show on the product page, not on the image when hovered over. 

In order to do that you would most likely have to use the Pinterest developers code to do so. You can check that out here: You're gonna be pasting the 'pin it' code where you want it, so likely your product pages. It may be possible add it to the product.liquid in your code but as I am not a coding expert, I would not be too sure of the best place to add this in that code template. Maybe some of our fellow forum members might chime in with some helpful info or guidance on where to best place that. 

However, if you are not comfortable with using code, I would recommend speaking with your Theme developer, contact info can usually be found in your storefront editor: to help possibly guide you in how to implement this.

Hope this information helps! You can reach out to the Guru team if you have any questions.

Have a great day!
