Hi! I checked in with our Editor Team, and we aren’t planning to include SoundCloud in the social follow block right now.

Hi, Katie. I was looking to see if anyone else had this request. By any chance, has this decision been reviewed since your earlier response? We would really like to be able to have a SoundCloud icon and link in our mailings too.

Without this capability, we have tried adding all our social icons manually in a row so that we can include it. It's frustrating, because it's not a good solution. It works fine for desktop and tablet but looks terrible on the iPhone. (They stack up vertically.)

I understand that you can't accommodate every social platform, but SoundCloud is one of the big ones now, particularly for those of us in the music industry—with a much larger user base than Pinterest, for example, which you've included. Is there a reason that this would be a difficult thing to add to the social follow preferences block?

Hi there! I checked again with our Editor Team, and we still don't have plans to include SoundCloud. The social follow block is new, so we're learning how everyone's using it, how they expect it to work and how it can be improved upon.

I hear you that SoundCloud is important for your work. We went with the platforms that were most requested, so if there are other Emma users wanting SoundCloud, we definitely want to know! This conversation is the best place to explain your use case and add your vote.

YES! There needs to be some kind of music file link available as well. Emma lives in Nashville, for goodness sake! ;-)

Hi there -- I'm updating the status of this Idea to Under consideration. While we don't have a current timeline on this work, our Product team is open to expanding the Social follow block options to include audio and visual icons like SoundCloud!
