Other Social Media Menu Items

    It turns out that the new Social Media module isn't a module, it's a folder with a fancy non-folder icon. This new Social Media folder should be mentioned in this article.

    Also, why would a template have a Social Media folder and the Twitter module, without the Twitter module inside the folder? That makes things rather confusing. I'd consider redesigning your templates.

    Thank you, Jacob.
