I assume you have heard the name of Genericons. It is a web font, that is used for responsive design. I don’t know how to write this really. Almost all the websites are now made responsive. If you see your visitors display resolution, you will see a variety of screen resolution. Responsive websites make it clear for all kind of screen resolution. Previously webmasters have used image for any social links or any kind icon. WordPress have used this Genericons in Twenty Thirteen theme. I have previously shared how to add social share links without image or java script.
Genericons are vector icons embedded in a webfont designed to be clean and simple keeping with a generic aesthetic. Use genericons for instant HiDPI, to change icon colors on the fly, or even with CSS effects such as drop-shadows or gradients!
