I am the developer for our Emma templates and noticed that there are [block] tags that were entered for us from your design team that trigger the Social Sharing option to happen for us.
BUT is there a tag for our base templates that we can use for the 'Follow'?  I see in the template editor when you make a new campaign you can add "Follow" links, but this seems to be per campaign not globally for all accounts.

If I go into our Assets area and create a new Template, is there a Tag that I can use that would be the same or similar as the Social Sharing tag but for the Follow Us tag?

I see that someone added the individual social icons to our pages in our footer for our Base template, BUT in the actual campaigns we can't access them.  

Also if I make a change to the base template in "Assets" area, and look at a template I created in the Campaign template editor that was based on our base template, our changes don't take effect.

Example:
In assets I create a template with a header and footer called 'MyBaseTemplate' and the content area is filled in by the editor in the Campaign section  (seems a bit disjointed but that is another ticket).

I then create a new template in the Campaign section of on of our accounts and say 'Save as Template' and call it "Marketing Template 2015"

I THEN go back to my 'MyBaseTemplate' in the Assets area of our account and change the footer content.  The issue here is now my "Marketing Template 2015" footer does NOT reflect our changes that we made in 'MyBaseTemplate'. Why are these disjointed in this way.  Since the Marketing template was based on the Base Template, I would expect the Marketing Template to reflect the changes.
