I don't use social icons, but I have played with the facility in RSD, and come to the following conclusions.

1. With the standard set of social icons in RSD, one can change the background colour in the Background section of the Design panel.

2. If one adds a new Social Icon element from the Elements section of the Content panel, one can change the image to whatever one wants in the Design panel. That is done by choosing a local or online image:
(a) if one has set the Social box to Generic, one changes the Source box from None to Local Icon or Online Icon.
(b) if one has set the Social box to one of the standard icons in the drop-down list (e.g. because one wants the Follow/Share etc.), then one first changes the Source box to None, and then changes it from None to Local Icon or Online Icon.

3. The replacement image used in item 2 above is best square, but the size and type of image file seem not to be critical. The display size is controlled by the Max-width box in the Dimensions section of the Design panel.

4. If one wants the ability in the Design panel to change the background colour of the replacement icon, then one chooses or makes the replacement image with a transparent background.
