The visitor simply clicks on each logo and is automatically connected to your company page for each channel.  Don’t worry if you do not have all 4 social media pages as it will only display the ones you have.  If you have no social media pages the system will automatically connect to your website page without any drop down list.  To see how this works view for yourself click on Our Magazines and click away.  In order for this feature to work correctly you will need to supply us the correct links to your website and social media pages.
