Social Tools, Widgets & Sidebars

Widgets »Social Media Icons Widget

The Social Media Icons Widget lets you add icons for the most popular social networks to your sidebar or other widget area. The icons are linked to your social media profiles, giving your readers access to your latest status updates.

Watch the video below for a quick overview of how it works, and read below for more examples and settings.

Here’s an example of what it looks like:


Currently, we support adding icons for the following social networks:

  • Facebook
  • Twitter
  • Instagram
  • Pinterest
  • LinkedIn
  • GitHub
  • YouTube
  • Vimeo

If you’d like to add an icon for a different social network, you can do so with a little bit of HTML.

Configuring the Widget

Once you add the widget to your sidebar, you can enter your usernames for the social networks you want to add. If you’re not a user on a particular social network, or just don’t want to add an icon for that network, just leave it blank.


Now click “Save”, and visit your blog to admire its new social media icons!

For Youtube, you need to use your Channel ID, not your username. You can find the channel ID in your Advanced Account Settings.
