    Not bad, although a bit generic :)

    Looks nice, but what do you need these icons for? Do you write about social platforms all day?

    @Andreas: if you are a blogger, you may use them to increase your traffic by asking visitors to support you in social media sites.

    How many of these social icon packs do you think the world needs???

    Seems to be an easy way to get a great backlink for every designer.
    Sit down for an hour, create a template, paste the social bookmarking logos in and thats it.

    The word “social” is spelled wrong in the preview ;)
    Anyways, nice icons. They are really useful for me!

  10. 10

    nice work, will add them to my site

    Another quiet day at Smashing Magazine? There are too many of these social icon sets featuring on the site now. Worse still, this one’s a bit of a lazy example that was probably designed expressly for free adversising. V-boring.

    I just don’t believe these are the quality that smashingmagazine usually holds, not a fan.

    really cool.

    With all due respect to the icon designers and Smashing’s editors/authors, these “social” icon sets are a massive waste of bandwidth. Thank you to Aravind Ajith, but perhaps your time would be better spent making something other than fadworthy icon sets.

    If you love a post/site only you will bookmark/share, isn’t it?. Basic idea of these icons lies there.. I know already there are enough social icons out there. But this is something I was looking for when I redesigned my blog. I found nobody has released these kind of ‘heart shaped’ icons before.. So I just skipped off the idea and used some other icons. Later I thought if I design icons in this idea, there would be somebody who will be happy to use them.. Anyway, thanks for all the comments.. =)

    Navego já a algum tempo na SmashingMagazine e de fato este é o point do WebDesign..
    Parabém pelo excelente trabalho!!!!

  32. 32

    Great work!
    Someone have the psd-file to that icons? :-) So it is eassier to add more social networks.

  33. 33

    Looks great!

    I was just wondering. We’ve got a lot social bookmarking and rss icons for download, but the question is, “How many of these are really being put to use by other designers?”

  34. 34

    Excellent work by you and we will be using these in our websites to honour your work

  35. 35

    Thanks. I feel there is so much ‘love’ and giving on this site. Great work. Thanks again.

  36. 36

    I use these on my blog. I’ve looked through all these comments, and no one has mentioned that the 64px set does not contain a Digg icon, and the Digg icon in the 32px set is only 16 x 16 px. Can the designer post a corrected set? Thanks in advance.

  37. 37

    Very Nice Collection

    As “Dot” mentioned Digg Icon is missing. Please post Digg icon for 64×64 size

  38. 38

    nice icons thanks , going to use it on my new site…
