Zocial CSS Social Buttons

The idea is to create beautiful social buttons using only CSS, rendering popular social icons as a font, and requiring minimal extra markup.

Benefits

  • Buttons always look sharp at any size and screen resolution.
  • Easily customize the size and call to action of the buttons.
  • Easily localize button text to other languages.

Usage

  1. Can be any element e.g. a, div, button etc.
  2. Add class of .zocial and add class for name of service e.g. .dropbox, .twitter, .github
  3. Optional: Add a class of icon to display as icon instead of button
  4. Optional: Change font size of the element to resize button

There's also a LESS version from @gustavohenke here

Examples:

<button class="zocial facebook">Sign in with Facebook</button>

or

<a class="zocial twitter">Follow Me</a>

  • icon font use private unicode spaces for accessibility
  • CSS3 degrades gracefully in IE8 and below
