You may edit each social icon or remove it. You may add unlimited items on your site if you need. Let’s add the new social icon item to the WordPress theme. I forgot to say that all those items use the Font Awesome icons that you may check on the Font Awesome site.

Let’s add a new one. For example, let's choose "Skype" and copy it to the "icon field".

Copy the skype font awesome class to the "icon field". This is the "Skype" class that you need to paste in this input. And here set the URL of your profile.

It’s a very simple widget and you may use it at each theme available layout position - not at the footer only. At this business theme, this widget is placed at the footer position. Let's do an example and move the widget above the contact widget. Contact widget is placed at Bottom5 position.

Let's move our PE Social above PE Contact widget and see what changed. Our widget is hidden here because there is a special class for use that centered our widget. So let’s remove it.
