This is a tutorial on how you can add social icons to your blogger blog. This widget is made from pure CSS without the use of any image or JavaScript which makes it a bit different with a cool tooltip hover effect.

The concept behind this widget is quite simple. This widget has four social icons which you can easily edit with your own URLs, name and you can also customize the tooltip to your taste. These icons are really eye-catching and have a attractive look.

Hovering over these buttons displays the  tooltip with the help of transition and transform CSS.

NOTE: This widget comes in a suite (The CSS and the Java Script) are together. You don't need to Edith your template to add the CSS codes. All you need is just add the code to your blog layout. 

Need a demo? It is right there on our blog sidebar.
