If you’ve got a social media presence (and let’s face it, in 2017, just about everyone does), chances are you’d like to link to it on your website. You can create your own social media buttons using CSS or create images from scratch, and you can even download icon sets if you’re not inclined to create your own buttons, but if you’re not design or tech-savvy, this can be quite an endeavor. Even if you’re a web developer, sometimes the time that goes in to creating custom social media buttons is more of a pain than it’s worth.
If this struggle sounds familiar to you, then the Simple Social Icons WordPress plugin is something that might greatly interest you.
The Simple Social Icons plugin allows you to easily and quickly add social media icons to any widget area on your WordPress site. You can customize colors, background colors, hover colors, etc, and, of course, you have complete control over what you want to link the buttons to. You can also customize button alignment and positioning. Social media platforms supported by the plugin include all the most common ones (Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc), and some lesser popular ones, like Github, Flickr, and SnapChat.
