    Hello everyone, I've just joined the forum here hoping that it will be a good source of help for my web design!

    So basically, I've been making my homepage on http://awaitcreate.breezi.com

    I was wondering how to implement social media streams like you see at the bottom of the homepage for Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. I want them all to appear in a uniform style and layout that is in keeping with the theme of the web page. Is there any 'best' way to do this?

    Also, general feedback on the design of my site?

    I've use "addthis.com" before. They provide the streams and some statistics.
    I suppose there are other services like that. You can make your own "widget" too.
    I guess it depends on what you want to appear, and whether or not you're concerned
    about "click statistics". You can get all of the social icons by using Google "images" search.

    Hmm, not exactly sure this is what I want.
    I want it to show, for example, the most recent item posted on my pages on each of those social media sites.

    So for example I want it to show the latest post from http://www.facebook.com/awaitcreate under the 'Facebook' header.

    Can you do this with addthis.com?

    You can use PHP to get the posts ... you own scripts or scripts like
