How can you insert wingdings in your social media profile !!!

To use these just copy and paste these icons on your social media profile. So it is very easy to use. But these wingdings are supported by limited social media platforms but it is accepted by major social media sites like Google+, Pinterest & Linkedin.

Browser compatibility

Wingdings have some browser compatibility issues, web developer advice have been against using wingdings, they prefer to use Unicode instead). Obviously, Unicode is not the option for social media profile editing.  Wingdings are not able to perform correctly on all computer systems so some of the symbols will not work on non-Microsoft systems such as Mac OS 10, Mac X10 or Linux.

Windings also work on many browsers like chrome, safari, Mozilla etc. but internet explorer browser displays all the wingdings finely.

This is my profile at linkedin which is having wingdings , so you can see these wingdings looks pretty cool and captures user attention. so why not use it and make your social media profile look enticing. 


In some of the cases, wingdings seems to be very good option to experiment with, I can see that they are widely supported by large search engine presence & thus now becoming a popular trend among social folks, but do remember don’t overdo use of wingdings, they can destroy your presence immediately.  Do it in a legitimate way and associate it with your niche. so why not try and make some juggling with these stunning wingdings.

I hope you like these wingdings and would be using now onward to create impact on the audience. Also with wingdings you can increase your SERP presence too.

  4. Hello Brother,
    Nice post, You have pointed good things in wingdings. I have been looking your profile today and found that stars what you used in your profile. Making our profile attractive attracts users to our blog as well as profile. I learnt “What are Wingdings” and how to use them. Thanks a lot brother.

  5. Jitendra,
    Uh-oh. Can’t help thinking we’re looking at something that could become very overused here. The next hashtags, perhaps? And, of course, if they aren’t used judiciously, they will quickly loose their attention grabbing power. What steps do you think users should take to make sure these things don’t get out of hand? I’d love if you could share your thoughts via the comment section on BizSugar so our whole community could benefit.

  6. Jitendra, I wondered what these things were called and how to use them. Like you noted do not go overboard using wingdings. Subtle placement helps you augment your text and grab attention.

    Cool share buddy, thanks!
