Refresh the Look of Your Blog With New Social Media Icons

A simple cosmetic change could give your tired old blog a facelift.

If you are too busy to restyle your blog, start by changing the look of your social media icons. Stand out from the crowd by choosing a different set of social media icon designs.

There are plenty of free social media icons on the Internet to choose from.

Some tips to help you decide on the right set of social media icons:
  • Choose social media icons that will blend with the overall design of your blog or website. Flat, minimalist icon designs for example, never seem to go out of fashion. And is my choice for giving a blog or website a clean look.
  • Choose a mixture of social networking sites (Facebook), social blogging sites (Twitter) and social bookmarking sites (StumbleUpon, Delicious) and "hybrid" sites like Pinterest (social bookmarking and social networking). Most popular icons are similar to those found on this blog - Facebook, Twitter, Linked In, Google +, Reddit
  • Don't overwhelm your blog with too many social media icons. Displaying just five to six icons would suffice.
