I'm new to Shopify and using the Brooklyn theme. Despite tinkering with the CSS, I can't figure out how to get the social media icons to show on the footer.
Also, I'd like to eliminate the dead space on product pages so that most, if not all, of my product information shows above the fold (including pictures). If there's a way to add smaller pictures under the main image for clickability, that'd be cool too.
Thanks in advance!

To add the social media icons on the footer of your site as well to link them to your own social media links, all you would need to do is access the storefront editor. To do this:
1. Go to your Shopify admin
2. Go to Online Store on the left-hand sidebar
3. Click on Themes
4. Click on "Customize Theme"
5. Look for "Social Media"
In that Social Media tab, you will be able to add your social media links like Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, etc.
Here is the official doc on our Brooklyn theme that may help you out with other questions. :) As for adding smaller minor images under the main image, we can have a look at supporting you with that once you're on a plan because our Theme Support team may be able to help you with certain customisations then.
I hope that clears it up for you!

I am creating my store using the Brooklyn Theme. Unfortunately, I was trying to add the Social Media Icons into the theme by following the suggetion highlighted above. But, still not working. Could someone show us how to configure it step by step? I think there is a problem with the theme, because I have done all the steps write....... Please I need a solution for this (I have wasted a lot of time trying to do it).. I am paying for that.
