Social Network Icons are an important part of Website Design and can really boost a websites appearance if designed and placed well.

One of the problems with all those social media icons that you see on web sites, at the beginning or end of articles for instance is that a lot of them all look the same. After a while as an audience we develop a form of banner blindness. A little like those Adsense ads you see everywhere, a few years back most people would click on these ads. Now far less will click as everyone knows they are ads.

Social Media Blindness

Social media icons and share prompts on web sites and in apps suffer from the same issue, they have become way too familiar. This makes it much harder to grow audiences on social media organically. It also makes it harder for web sites to get their content widely shared unless its a really hot scoop or something.

Social Media Icon Sets

Social Network Icons are an important part of Website Design and can really boost a websites appearance if designed and placed well.

A partial solution to the problem is in making social media icons no longer look like social media icons. Ultimately they contain logos so you cannot completely eliminate the icon blindness issue. However you can alleviate it substantially.
