MailChimp has updated their email marketing platform to v7.8, updating their recently introduced drag-and-drop editor and introducing social blocks, among other things.

You get the option to select the icon style and layout as well as the alignment of the social follow block. The social share option allows you to select the content or url to share, a description to add and to select a social network like Facebook or Twitter to share the content or url to.
Other updates include:
– Drag & Drop editor now available for RSS and A/B split campaigns
