I have a pet peeve. Okay fine, I’ve got more than one of them. One in particular has to do with social media icons. It may be silly, but I just can’t stand seeing outdated social media icons. In an attempt to save the world from outdated social media icons I’ve created my own social media icon set and you can download them for free!

Whether it’s a blog, business site, or just a cool infographic, one outdated social icon can totally ruin it for me. I can understand though that it’s not easy to stay on top with how often some of these sites change their icons. So I’ve made it my goal to not only keep myself updated, but to help keep you updated as well.

For me, this is one of those small details that can communicate volumes about your digital presence. Staying on the cutting edge keeps you relevant, reinforces trust, and helps you achieve social media rockstar status. If you’re going to build and design a blog worth following it is essential that your social media links are both visible and current. That’s why I created this free icon set for you to download and use at your leisure.

This is part of the Blog Design Essentials series where I go through what it takes to create a visually stunning blog.

What is in the set?

I’ve hand picked the most popular social sites out there and created six different downloadable sets. I’ve created a square icon version and a minimalistic version (no square) both with 3 color schemes each (color, black and white).ย They are all 32x32px (because I don’t believe in smaller icons ;)…).

The social networks included in the set are:

  • Google+
  • Twitter
  • Facebook
  • YouTube
  • LinkedIn
  • Instagram
  • Pinterest
  • Tumblr
  • Vine
  • Vimeo
  • Flickr
  • Ello
  • Blogger
  • Reddit (new)
  • Medium (new)
  • Meerkat (new)
  • Periscope (new)
  • RSS
  • Email
  • Bonus: my icon ๐Ÿ˜‰

6 sets of 19 icons, that’s a total of 114 free social media icons that I’ve created for you! Needless to say it took some time to craft all of these, and being a full-time husband and daddy, I just can’t afford to do every single site out there. However, I am open to requests if you have any specific icons you’d like for your set– just inquire on my contact page.

How about a preview?

Here’s a full preview of all the icons included:

minimal social media icons

These are two of the 6 styles included in the set. The other styles included are a black and white versionย of the each of the stylesย you see above (tile and isolated logos).

The goal is to stay as current and accurate to each social network as possible to ensure brand consistency but also have a uniform look and feel.

I will be keeping this page as current as possible. Every time one of these social networks changes it’s icon– you can bet I’ll be updating these sets as soon as possible. So it might be a good idea to bookmark this page or subscribe for updates so you’ll never miss an update.

    Great idea. How about an icon for my blog – the Stretched blog? Just kidding – sort of. I’ve been thinking about working with someone to come up with a logo for my blog. How do you think your logo has helped to expand your platform?

    • says

      Well John, I do actually offer brand identity and logo design, but I’m pretty booked up. I’m trying to formulate something for people in your shoes that would be practical and highly effective for a blogger… Still working on it though.

      As far as your question goes, I think it has definitely helped solidify my brand image in a number of ways. I’ve also gotten a lot more requests for logo design and brand identity because of it.

    • says

      It is definitely a popular network… never really worked into my personal online strategy… yet. Thanks for the suggestion– that will definitely be my next addition to the set!

        HI, how cool to have connected with you on G+ today. I also see that you have added Pinterest and IG icons. Thank you! I made one Pinterest icon to match one of your sets, but I’m VERY sure your’s is much better. Thank you, thank you, thank you! Kim

          • says

            Since you asked…Lol. I made a tumblr icon to match your icons however, I’m sure yours would be much nicer, so tumblr would be my request. Another request would be an icon for QwikR.me – I would be happy to add an advertising banner on QwikR that links back to you. I would love to have an icon set that includes QwikR to offer all of the people that have free profiles, giving you full credit, of course. If you want an idea of what a profile looks like, you can see mine at http://QwikR.me/QRKim

    Hey Dustin,

    Love this!

    Could you make a Pinterest and Instagram icon please? Instagram now have online profiles and pinterest has grown a lot!

  3. Devan says

    Dude you rock! I love them. I recently spent like an hour going through iconfinder.com to find updated cool social media icons and they all sucked.

    Thank you!

  4. says

    Hei Dustin, great work on the icons, I put it in my list of ressources for my ‘students’. :)

    One wish: An icon for a website. While this may not make sense in the first thought, there is a reason behind it: this would allow somebody to use your icons also on other sites like tumblr (to link back to the real webpage, many people have a side tumblr).

    Soundcloud is a good idea, as they have a heavy usage with people who are producer mindset = also likely to be on many different plattforms. Not only the musicians but also the people who use it for spoken words or sound recordings. Along those lines an itunes icon for those podcasters would be great.

    If you like to make it more versatile (and even encourage more businesses to discover you) a foursquare icon would be great – along side a link in the menu to ‘hire me’.

    While there are many other options out there, those are actually the major networks to look through. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Thanks again for the icons!

  5. says

    Hey Dustin, great work. I’m surprised you didn’t squish these together into a sprite, but I took care of that.

    Thanks for the time it takes to craft a nice set like this.

  6. Simon Woods says

    I adore this set! When you posted an update to them I couldn’t wait to get hold of the new icons, however, sadly when I download the pack none of the updates are included. I am now wondering if I did something wrong?

  7. Beth Zimmerman says

    I would love to see a My Fitness Pal icon. Admittedly not EVERYONE would use this one but there are a fair number of bloggers who share their dietary and fitness journeys on their blogs. It would be awesome to have a quick way to share those pursuits with others.

    And personally I really like Rebel Mouse and would add their icon.

    The only other one that I can think of, off the top of my head, is StumbleUpon. Not sure if that is a good idea or not. I am just beginning to use SU.

    Thanks so much for the lovely set of icons!

  8. Beth Zimmerman says

    Okay one other idea. I use both my Facebook profile and page and would like to have links to both without using the same icon twice. Not sure how to do that but it would be awesome to have!

  9. Lynn Abate-Johnson (@peoplefw) says

    Dustin,
    Thanks so much for this.
    Very handy.
    I love hearing from you and I have been watching you via HOA’s mostly through our mutual friend, Mia Voss.

    Hope your weekend is fabulous and thanks also for the clear direction on blogging, as always.

  10. Rachel says

    This might be a silly question… but I am trying to place these into an illustrator file and they are very pixellated. Why is that?

    • says

      Good question Rachel! It’s because these are .pngs saved at 32×32 pixels. If you’re taking them into Illustrator (which is vector based, not pixel based) then they’re going to look pixelated). If you want to avoid pixelation you’ll want to keep them at the set size or make them smaller. If you stretch them in any way though, they will become pixelated.

  11. Dan Goodwin says

    Hi! Was linked here by MarketingJesus.net – thanks for the icon set!!

    What about a Spotify icon?? Would be great for linking to playlists etcโ€ฆ

    Thanks again, looking forward to more in my inbox form now on.

    DG

    • says

      Thanks for dropping a comment Dan! In version one of the icon set I had Spotify however I didn’t get any feedback about keeping it in the following updates so I nixed it from the set. Sorry! :/

  12. Anna says

    I just wanted to Thank you for creating the set of the Social Icons!

    Thank you again!

    Reason being, I use Canva pretty often (daily basis to be exact) and for what ever reason finding Social Icons became a pain….

    So Thank You!

    p.s. Where I find out what it takes to create logo for me? (hope you can reply)

  13. Trevor says

    These are great, and I love the simplicity! One thing I would love to see is high res versions of these. Maybe at least 256px or even vector files would be awesome! Right now it’s very limited because of the small size. Just a thought. Thanks!

  14. Roukaya Said says

    Hello,
    I’m Roukaya Said, community manager at the Departemental council of Mayotte in Paris. Traveller and dreamer, for me travelling brings the best out of myself to become a better person everyday.
    Well thank you very much for your insight and the offer of the social media icon set.
    I would suggest to add on the set if you would be interrested in the asian market. Particularly the South East of Asia.

    Firstly, I would add the Wechat/Wexin ( chinese messenger) icon. Because literally everyone on Asia have an account in it and so does the asian diaspora on the international scale.

    Secondly, Line App would be as great as Wechat another messaging apps which relay the information about music trends, stars and have awesome emoticons. It does reach Japan, Malaysia, South Korea and Taiwan, Hong Kong, Macau users.

    Thirdly, I would add Kakaotalk icon because, everyone on South Korean and the korean diaspora abroad use this korean app to communicate with each other. Particularly filled with cute emoticons and strongly linked to the Kpop wave. It’s a must have for anyone living in South korea.

    Finally, especially for the korean market, the application Naver could be relevant to use , because it the first search motor of the local population in Korea. Google is present on the mind of users but less used because Naver use national langage whereas google lack a litlle bit in that area.

    Your articles are so releavant and filled with ideas.

    Keep going.

    Cheers

    Roukaya Said

    What a great icon set, Dustin! And very generous of you to give it away for free.

    I just joined your mailing list so I can get updates whenever you update these icons.

    Sharing now!

  16. says

    I keep waiting for some of these icon sets to have one for the You Version Bible app now that they have the “friend” feature. If you add one, please let me know! In case you haven’t checked it out, it’s at bible.com .

  17. Jessica says

    I feel like I’m being a dunce, but I’ve signed up for the insider’s list, and I still can’t figure out how to download the vector versions. Could you point me in the right direction, or am I waiting for an email?

    Thanks for this great resources as well! I can’t believe how difficult it is to find correct vectors of these icons.

        Thank you Dustin!

        I do still feel like a dunce, because that was exactly the problem. Found the email and excited to check out these resources and follow your updates! Thanks again!
