Is there a Twitter button that I can put on my site with the following functionality:

When the user clicks the button, it brings up a popup of my page on Twitter without the user leaving my site?

Is there also a Facebook button with this functionality?

And is there a LinkedIn button with this functionality?


Simply put there is not generic button ready for anyone to grab a little bit of code for either facebook or twitter

For Twitter this is possible with the Twitter @anywhere Platform. this does involve a bit of coding. (not much)

I do not know about a way to do this through facebook or linked-in. but I assume it is not as easy as a pre-coded button

You're looking for something like this:

<a href="http://www.URL.com/" target="_blank">TITLE</a>

By including the 'target' property in the url, with a value of '_blank', your button will open in a new window.

If you want your button to have a certain look, you need to create an image in html that links to your social media pages.
