Buttons and Badges
Buttons and badges share health messages and information about campaigns and causes online. Buttons are graphic elements that usually include an image, a short message, and a link for more information. Buttons are often created to be shared, and include HTML code that allows them to be posted on a Web site.
Like buttons, badges are also small graphic images that include a message and link to a Web page. However, badges are often posted on an individual's social network profile or personal blog to show support for or affiliation with a cause or issue, and may include messages that show a personal action was taken (e.g. "I got tested." instead of "Get tested.")
