Free Social Media Icons
It was always difficult for me to find good looking Social Media Icons for usage in my WordPress themes. The most common problem is that the icons have to be GPL or GPL-compatible licensed and most designer share their icons with a stricter license.
WordPress Themes should be licensed under GPL and that requires also all bundled resources to be GPL compatible. So far I have used the icons from nouveller.com in my Social Media widget, which were released with absolutely no restrictions.
Although the author shared the icons totally free without any attribution there is missing a clear license statement on the page. Since the buttons are also outdated and newer social websites are missing, I was busy the last week to create my own social media icon set.
Free GPL licensed Social Media Icons
Since I knew that free icon sets are very rarely, I’d like to share my icons with absolutely no restrictions. I really hope that you redistribute and resell them in as many templates, plugins and websites as you can. They are completely free to use for both personal and commercial projects. No attribution is required.

Growing Icon Set?
I have started with just 25 icons, but I would like to keep this icon set up to date and steadily increase the icons. But you have to help me. What social icons are you missing? What icon should I create? Just tell me in the comments below and I will most likely include the icons when I find the time.
