Adding social media icons to the header in older templates

Most of the more recent templates, such as ones in Brine or York family, allow you to automatically display social media icons in the header. However, if you're using a different template (or your clients don't want to connect their accounts for any reason) then there is another way!

This workaround uses a service called FontAwesome which allows you to add icons that are treated as fonts, so you can style them and add them to your links and they will look nicely in keeping with the rest of your website.
