2011 Web Design Trends, Pt. VI: Social Media

Social Media Sites and Icons—
While most of us are extremely familiar with blogs and sites that have icons, it is not that popular among web designers. Adding social media sites’ icons, like Facebook, Twitter and Youtube can help sites connect with those that view them. There are some icons that people are less familiar with that are also helpful to a company’s overall website. It is also a good idea to include icons that allow people to subscribe to RSS feeds, add your site to their social bookmarking profile or let them Digg your content. These icons will help viewers stay constantly connected with your site.
