How to change a feed icon or any icon in a blog.
Find a new stylish social media icon of your choice. I have given some free sets of icons for all of my readers.Just scroll down to the end of the post to get that. These icon sets are in different sizes and given as PNG icons. Once you download the free icon set, simply select the correct size that you wish to use.
Open an account in any of photo sharing websites like Picassaweb, Flickr, or Photobucket. Then upload the selected PNG or JPEG icon file to your account. Once you upload, then copy the URL linked to the icon or picture you have uploaded. You will get this URL in your album near to the picture you have uploaded.
Here I will describe you, how I replaced my old Feed Address icon with a new Feed icon. As said in Step A, I upload a desired button of my choice into an album created by me in photobucket website.Then I copied the URL of that PNG file. Now look to the code given below. You can see the URL of my feed address given in Red letters and URL of my new Feed icon in Maroon letters.
Here you had to make two changes. First of all, change the Feed address (or what ever social media address you want) given in Red letters to your Feed address. Then change Maroon colored URL given below with the URL of your new PNG icon that you copied from Step A
