      Those look really cool. I love the Cafe because it evokes a retro mood with the background reminiscent of the groovy sixties. :)

      Cool icons, but I still just prefer the standard icons. Most of the other ones would not be suitable for the majority of websites.

      Having these icons on your blog would be really great.For me Polaroid icons are the best because they have got that professional and simple look attached with them.

      These are all very interesting and makes it easier to share blogs/articles. However I would prefer the same logo across all formats.
