When building your about page, you might consider adding your company’s different team members in a showcase. When starting that design process, you’ll notice that three things can’t be missing off the bat: an image, a name and a position. But if you want to highlight your team members even more, you can consider adding their social network links to the design as well. Of course, you could go about it the old-fashioned way and add a Social Media Follow Module below the person’s name and position. However, you can also choose to add a tiny bit of interaction by triggering the social icons as soon as someone hovers one of the person images. In today’s tutorial, we’ll show you exactly how to do that using Divi. You’ll be able to download the JSON file for free as well!

Let’s get to it.
