I use ShareThis social media buttons on the bottom of my pages such as http://www.RomanceStuck.com. They work well on desktops and tablets but look too small to be functional on my iPhone. Is there some CSS code or something where I can have them load larger on mobile devices?

Thanks!

You can use media queries to detect the small screen and then apply different CSS rules for different devices.

What CSS would work to make the ShareThis buttons larger?

If they are normal buttons the increasing the font-size would make the buttons larger that might also work for some custome buttons depending on how they are coded, for image buttons you will probably have to change the dimensions of the images.

You basically will have to do an alternate set of styles for the share this buttons.

If the buttons are being imported and you are using third party code, then you need to take control and write your own code.  If you use third party code then you are limited by the skillset of the author.
