There are surprisingly few free sets of plain round social networking icons (without any ‘grunge’, 3D or ‘furry’ effects) and even less good ones. This post contains a list of 7 clean and professionally designed sets of circular-shaped social icons that look good both on light and dark backgrounds and are likely to fit into various designs.
If you know any other good sets of circular social icons, feel free to drop a link in the comments.
