Yes, don't use FontAwesome.

Why not? Over 1000,000,000 websites use it. 🤔

I only need 3 social icons. So, I rather choose svg than bloated FontAwesome.

If you're going to use FontAwesome, the responsible way to do it is to use IcoMoon to create a font subset of just the icons you need, and then save that as a custom font and use that. It'll bring your gzip size from 70KB down to maybe 10KB (obvs depending on how many icons you use).

IcoMoon is really good alternative.
