To learn how to style the round social media icons/ buttons follow the steps below:

Step1.

Add HTML

Create the social media icons that you want to style:

<a href="#" class="fab fa-codepen"></a>
<a href="#" class="fab fa-instagram"></a>
<a href="#" class="fab fa-facebook"></a>
<a href="#" class="fab fa-tiktok"></a>
<a href="#" class="fab fa-twitter"></a>

Add CSS

Import the font-awesome font:

@import url('https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/font-awesome/5.15.3/css/all.min.css');

Style the icons. Add border-radius: 50%; to create the round shape of the button and reduce the width to 30px:

  width: 30px;
  text-align: center;
  text-decoration: none;
  margin: 5px 2px;
  transition: transform .2s;
  border-radius:50%;
}

.fab:hover {
  transform: scale(1.2);
}
.fa-codepen {
  background-color: #000;
  color: white;
}
    
.fa-instagram {
  background-color: #f72585;
