  1. Hi colorlib,
    Thanks for sharing these great social media icons. Some of them looks amazing. I still prefer simple icons.

  2. Hi Colorlib,

    I live your awesome flat design icon collection and already found a set that I will use for my next design project in school.

  3. This is great but do any of these sets include Periscope and Snapchat? If not, does anyone know of a flat design set that include these icons?

    1. Ari,

      None of these icon sets includes Periscope or Snapchat. Both are a brand new services and designers haven’t properly recognized them yet. There are some recent icon sets that does include Snapchat and Periscope but none of theme are well designed. We will keep an eye on new icon sets and update this article once good sets will be available.

      Sorry for inconvenience.

  4. Best social icon collection ever! Can’t choose the one and only for my website. I guess I will have to close my eyes and choose randomly because most of them are really great and would work well on my website.

    1. catseye,

      Thank you for your feedback!
      We made sure to find the best icon collection, so other could find them useful as well. We always keep this collection update once more awesome icon collections are released.

  5. These are great, but I don’t know how to get them from an .ai file to jpgs or pngs. I don’t have adobe illustrator. Any advice?

    1. Sarah,

      You might want to check if there are some free online tools that converts Adobe Illustrator files to pngs and jpgs. I believe that there should be some tools like that. If not you will have to do someone to do conversion for you.

  6. Very nice! I still like simple icons most like those shown here. I came across another set which might be useful. They are called Social Piranjas Icons. They are not as good as others on the list but still worth mentioning.

  7. Thanks Pene for sharing these, it’s a shame the social platforms like to keep changing their logos – none here reflect the latest, more simplified Instagram logo unfortunately. This page is a great resource for other platforms, though!

  8. Hi, thank you for sharing, I have a question.
    How these icons effects on the speed of page loading? – For example, I am using these simple Typicons and my site loading fast and properly, but icons in your article look pretty heavy if you ask me.

    1. Tom,

      Not all of above listed icons are font based icons. You have to use them as SVG, PNG or other style images on a web. These are mainly meant to be used for designing in Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop and other sort of tools. For web use you will need to make some mods in most cases. All font based icons such as Font Awesome and others do add extra files that are rather large in size, therefore, you might want to think twice before using them just to show only 2-3 icons somewhere on the site.

  9. The choice of a light small size font for your website is the worst. When I have to use a magnifying glass the read a site, I skip it. How about some consideration for those of us over 30?

    1. George,

      Sorry for the inconvinience. However, there is a double tap function on trackpad for Mac or zoom in feature for any computer (Mac, Windows, Linux) for this kind of purpose.
