Developed at NCI. The Social Media Icons Widget is a basic sidebar widget that displays icon links for the user's social media profile URLs. The widget includes 28 different freeware icon sets with different combinations of icons.  The default icon set features all the icon types found in the other icon sets.

Icons may be ordered using drag/drop in the widget panel

It is also possible to create custom icon sets by adding a folder with the icons you want to appear in your sidebar.
