Social Widget plugin for displaying links to your social media in any widget area. Created by WPExplorer, this plugin allows you to add colorful icons with links to your social profiles of choice in any widgetized sidebar of your WordPress site. Choose from various social profiles (add only the ones you need), drag and drop to move them around, choose from square, round or rounded styles and even select your custom icon size.
The plugin uses it’s own custom font icon set for the social icons so they will load quickly and display nice and crisp on any screen, including retina devices.
