Metro Social Icons
Recently I posted how you can add a Metro Style Search bar to Blogger and today I am going to show you how you can add Metro Style Social icons to  your blogger blog. These icons are purely made of CSS without use of any JavaScript. It comes with hover effect and looks elegant and cool.

This widget which was created by +Vinay Prajapati contains 7 famous social networking site icons. They are - Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, Google+, LinkedIn, Pinterest and RSS. The demo of this widget can be seen below














  • Once you have seen the demo we can move on how you can add this widget to your blog.

     

    Adding the widget in Layout


    Go to Blog Title → Layout → Add Widget → HTML/JavaScript. Paste the below code.
