4 Steps to Having Social Media Icons That Match Your Theme

Installing Theme Consistent Social Media Icons

As promised in my last post Don't Just Share Your Posts, Share Your Blog, here are the instructions to installing your social media icons that fit your theme.

Step 1 Find the icons you'd like to use or make them.

These icons can basically be any picture you want, however, I suggest if you use your own pictures, be sure it's easy to tell that they are icons and not just pretty pictures. Google search Free Social Media Icons and you'll find lots of results for pages listing awesome icons where you can visit that site and download them for free. Once you've downloaded the package of icons, I suggest going through it and grabbing the ones you want and dropping them into another folder. I'm using icons found on http://webtreats.mysitemyway.com/tag/icons/ for the example below.

Step 2 Adjust the Size of the Icons

Use your favorite editing application to scale the icons. If you don't own an application that does so, www.pixlr.com does a great job. The size of your icons are based on how many icons you'll be using, how many rows you want to have and the width of your sidebar. If your sidebar is 200 pixels wide and you're adding 4 icons per row, divide the 200 by 4 and you get 50 pixels per icon. Majority of these icons come with transparent space around them. Keep that space! Creates a nice even gap between the icons.
