While sidebar position is either on the left or right side of the content, the icons must be links to your social media page.  So it is not optimal to place icons which have sharing design as the sidebar is better for only linking to the fan page. Below are icons which actually suits this purpose and can be placed in sidebar, footer etc.

  1. That’s a beast of an article Allie, a lot of icons there! Haha.

    I have created my own set which is a twist on the traditional icon and also integrates a call-to-action. The reason for this is I believe most webmasters simply plonk their icons in their web design and leave it. Without actually making an effort to get people to click on their social profiles and engage with them. With a simple call-to-action small website owners can actually encourage engagement. They will be showing social icons anyway, why not maximise their effectiveness!

    • Chris, you make an excellent point and one that few are actually savvy to (for now) in this current day.

      Here is a powerful article on the topic that I came across last year. It forever changed my view regarding the use and placement of Social Media icons. Please leave us a link or contact me directly with some of your samples Chris, I would appreciate seeing your perspective. The below information is simply icing on the cake to one of the best icon lists I’ve seen thus far. Thank you Allie, great job!!


  2. Perfect Icons is also a great resource!


  3. These social media icons and buttons are enough to provide outstanding look to a blog and attract the attention of readers to share the post. I’ve downloaded all the icons and buttons in order to choose the best and add it to my blog posts. I would like to say thank you very much for these social media icons and buttons.
