social sharing widget

Though social sharing widget is useful to increase the connectivity with blog post. Modern blog user use Font Awesome instead of the icons. So I have used Font Awesome 4.2.0  feature. This feature will display the social media icons instead of image. Remember that if you are using Font Awesome 4.2.0 then you don't have to add Font Awesome 4.2.0 file in your blog header section. So skip the Step 4. just follow the below steps-
