The Social Media Icon Bar
SoBar is designed to provide svg-based social media icon experience. SoBar can be used in a standalone manner by setting a width or height on an image element using an svg as a source. Alternatively, this repository comes packaged with CSS designed to provide a slightly more modular icon system.
Unlike its predecessor, SMIB, SoBar has no limiting factor of attractivity. Any size can be used, with any styles, which allows for complete customization within the confines of the branding guidelines for each icon:
Source and Special Mention
The share icon used in this repository is based on Min Ming Lo's article, entitled Share: The Icon No One Agrees On. It is clear that the milkshake icon is far greater than anything else, and should be adopted as a standard sharing icon. If you disagree with this notion, feel free to fork and add your own icon.
EDIT: It's five years later, and I don't think this has caught on, yet.
