Font Awesome is used by most sites for icons. Those tiny pictures you see on sites that represent buttons are usually just icons.

While it won’t likely result in a mass onboarding it is nice subtle exposure that has a long shelf life.

So that's what it is, it's not that bad. Thanks marky.

It also makes it easier for us to encourage people with a WordPress blog to add a small icon on their website to redirect their readers to their profile on Hive (similar to how most will have a button directing people to their Twitter, Instagram, Facebook etc).

Every little bit helps :)

That's interesting and would make a difference - makes Hive more "real" ;)
