  1. Slanted Social Media Icons – Twitter, Google Plus, Facebook, 48px

    Free social media icons, CSS sprites 48px

    Here is a CSS Sprite that includes 3 free social media icons on slanted 3D tiles: Twitter, Google Plus, and Facebook. The social icons are each 48px by 48px square.

    Download the package to get the sprite .png image, the required .css file, and a sample HTML for the icons.

    This is the CSS:

    .social_icons_48_twitter,
    .social_icons_48_google_plus,
    .social_icons_48_facebook {
      background: url(sprite_48.png) no-repeat;
      display:inline-block;
      width: 48px;
      height: 48px;
    }
    
    .social_icons_48_google_plus {
    	background-position: -104px 0;
    }
    
    .social_icons_48_facebook {
    	background-position: -50px 0;
    }
    

    If you place the sprite image (sprite_48.png) in a different directory than the CSS, then you’ll have to edit line 4, above, to add the path to the sprite image. For example, you may have to change sprite_48.png to ../images/sprite_48.png.

    The following is the HTML to display the icons. Line 1 will show the Twitter icon. Line 2 will show the Google Plus icon, and line 3 will show the Facebook icon. You will have to replace the # in the URLs so that it links to your own social media profiles.

    <a  class="social_icons_48_twitter" href="https://twitter.com/#"></a>
    <a  class="social_icons_48_google_plus" href="https://plus.google.com/#"></a>
