How to create Social media buttons for YouTube. YouTube is an online video sharing and social media platform owned by Google. Around the world, its users watch more than one billion hours of YouTube videos each day. YouTube creators, popularly referred to as YouTubers, upload over one hundred hours of content per minute. In 2005, Youtube.com was launched by Steve Chen, Chad Hurley, and Jawed Karim.
The most common types of social media buttons offer share, like, and follow functions. Each serves a different purpose, and the ways they work vary somewhat among networks. But each type generally does what its name implies:
Share buttons allow users to share your content with friends and followers
Like buttons allow them to give your content a virtual thumbs-up
Follow buttons will subscribe them to your updates on the specified social network
YouTube only offers one social media button, which allows users to subscribe to a YouTube channel.

How it works

You have the options to include your YouTube profile image, a dark background behind the button, and whether you want to show your existing subscriber count. As with the other networks, highlighting an existing large subscriber count can be a great signal of social proof. Social media buttons for YouTube
