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 It may be silly, but I just can’t stand seeing outdated social media icons. In an attempt to save the world from outdated social media icons I’ve created my own social media icon set and you can download them for free!
Whether it’s a blog, business site, or just a cool infographic, one outdated social icon can totally ruin it for me.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). They are all 32x32px (because I don’t believe in smaller icons ;)…).
The social networks included in the set are:
- Google+ (Updated)
- Reddit (new)
- Medium (new)
- Meerkat (new)
- Periscope (new)
- Bonus: my icon 😉
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:
These are two of the 6 styles included in the set. The other styles included are a black and white version of the each of the styles 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.
