Ray Moreton is right, Fontawesome is great for free icons http://fortawesome.github.io/Font-Awesome/icons/ - if you look in the brand section that's where all the social media icons are. You just include the stylesheet (look on the Get Started page).

If you mean share icons and share functioning with email you can use www.sharethis.com/get-sharing-tools/ but the Javascript is heavy on load times!

flaticon.com is the place I use it is great!!

Try sketchappsources.com - Some good stuff on there for Sketch.

You can usually receive free-to-use icons from the social media business itself. For instance, both Facebook https://www.facebookbrand.com/ and Twitter https://about.twitter.com/press/brand-assets have a brand assets page where you can download versions of their icons for use on your website as social media links.

Here is a pretty cool list

Hope this Helps!
