Managing a blog or starting a new social network? You’ll need graphics to use with your new system. While there’s no lack of offerings on the market, why paying anything at all for something you’re going to use for your personal social network?
Stock icons are the fastest, easiest and most affordable alternative to ordering your icons from an artist. While not all stock graphics are created equal, the licensing policies of their suppliers can differ significantly. Sometimes you are hit with royalties, and sometimes stringent licensing conditions are there to restrict your ability to use your purchase. There are, however, free alternatives that cost you nothing at all.
Leaning towards bloggers and Web developers, Aha-Soft offers something for nothing with its Free 3D Social Icons. Available to all webmasters, software developers and Internet users, these images are absolutely free and come with no strings attached. No licensing restrictions, no royalties, no backlinks and no ads on your site or blog are required.
