Hi @RebeccaD - it looks like the share links you selected are displaying – in the Bedford theme they display in a modal window when a user clicks on the "Share" icon. See this screenshot image.png.f4775a790081eedfdcdcf141cd92f1f3.png

Some other Squarespace 7.0 template families offer "advanced share buttons" that aren't hidden behind the share link, but not Bedford unfortunately. There are more details on those differences here: https://support.squarespace.com/hc/en-us/articles/206543857-Share-buttons 

There are third-party tools that would improve your social sharing buttons – some free but privacy-invasive (e.g. ShareThis), and others paid (e.g. ElfSight) – but these require using code injection and take a bit of additional setup outside your Squarespace account.

Hope that helps!
