Add a social widget

Social widgets provide an easy way to configure custom HTML and embed it into your Adobe Muse pages. Most of the Web widgets provide functionality that is also available by embedding HTML from third-party websites. You can save time by adding and configuring the web content from within Adobe Muse, rather than generating the code outside the application and pasting it into Adobe Muse as embedded HTML. 

To add a social widget to your Adobe Muse page, perform the following steps:

  1. Open the page where you want to add social widgets. Click Window > Widgets Library, and click Social.

    The full list of Social widgets is displayed.
