It is therefore much important for a blogger also to put up a nice social media widget that attracts visitors and engage them in following you on various social media platforms.

Keeping this in view i just have come up with a very nice, cool looking and much attractive social media widget for your Navigation bar or you can also add this to your sidebar with slight customization.

How to add it

  1. To add this widget to your navigation bar or sidebar follow these simple steps.
  2. Go to Templates > Edit HTML (Make sure you create a backup of your template)
  3. Find ]]></b:skin>  and paste the following CSS code just above it
ul#icon-socialmn li{float:left;display:inline-block;position:relative}
ul#icon-socialmn li a{background-image:url(;background-repeat:no-repeat;display:block;width:40px;height:47px;text-indent:-9999px;-webkit-transition:background .2s ease-out;-moz-transition:background .2s ease-out;-o-transition:background .2s ease-out;transition:background .2s ease-out}

4. Save your template
5. Now Wherever you want to show the Social Media Widget  paste the following code there
<div dir="ltr" style="text-align: left;" trbidi="on">
<ul class="sociico" id="icon-socialmn">
<li class="social-twitter" style="background-color: black;"><a href="Your Link Here" target="_blank">twitter</a></li>
<li class="social-facebook" style="background-color: black;"><a href="Your Link Here#" target="_blank">facebook</a></li>
<li class="social-google" style="background-color: black;"><a href="Your Link Here" target="_blank">google</a></li>
<li class="social-rss" style="background-color: black;"><a href="Your Link Here" target="_blank">rss</a></li>
<li class="social-pinterest" style="background-color: black;"><a href="Your Link Here" target="_blank">pinterest</a></li>
For example i added this into navigation bar to show widget in navigation menu.
Note: Make Sure you have dark background to make widget look perfect You can change the background color to any color by changing  black  in above code. If you don't want any background color just remove this style="background-color: black;"  from above code in all lines and if you removed it then widget will appear there fine but it will be all in white color and will be difficult for you to notice. So it is recommended to have dark background.

If you like this widget then please share it with your friends on facebook and twitter and you can ask any question about this widget below in comments. :)
