You need to add the widgets into their proper place. Go to Appearance > Widgets and in the left you'll see a list of widgets while in the right you'll see a list of default widget areas. Somewhere down the page you'll see the Header first widget area in which i have (in the demo) the:
Below it there is the Header second widget area in which there is a shortcode:
This social widget can be configured by putting a social widget with the icons type in any page. Just configure the widget as you wish, than paste it here.
The footer widgets are most done with shortcodes, which are entered into simple text widgets. The two sets of widgets presented in the demo are:
1. Footer first widget area:
2. Footer second wideget area:
3. Footer third widget area:
4. Footer third widget area:
Keep in mind that you can insert any shortcodes you want inside text widgets and put them in the footer. You can even have a portfolio here :)
The bottom footer has a custom menu and some text.
Could you please tell me how to create this bottom footer menu?

The bottom footer menu is a basic custom menu widget.. All possible shortcodes are available in the visual composer and you can also read about them inside the manual..
Thanks for the post on this, I was looking how to sort the footer.
All the short codes work well apart from the Flickr one?
I have my id (and even tried your id posted) but nothing renders? [rb_flickr id="27752478@N08" no="12" width="1/1" el_position="first last"]
Any ideas Ruben?

Are you sure that the id is correct? Please use http://idgettr.com/ to get your correct id, and please note that you can only use usernames, not groups or sets or stuff like that.

Hello. I couldn't find it exactly but can the social sharing be up top too? What's the proper text to put in the text box? I could only do the social icons. THX!
9:50 on September 30, 2013
Yes, the social sharing can be up to. I cannot write all shortcodes here for you. You can find any shortcode text by switching froom the Visual Composer to the Classic View after creating your shortcode,.

Thanks for fielding this, but I'm a bit confused. I do not see these in the documentation, are some shortcoded wordpress specific and some theme or plugin specific? How to I find out simply what the syntax is so I can update the code to suit my needs?
9:50 on October 3, 2013
You can add shortcodes in a dummy page via the Visual Composer, then switch to the Classic View and you'll see the proper code. Add that in the widgets areas..

Can you help me with an icon for Google Plus?
9:50 on November 22, 2013
What help do you need? I'm pretty sure that there's an icon in the package. Just do what i've written above..
9:50 on November 25, 2013
I need the code for that icon. For example, the code for Facebook icon is "facebook". But what is the code for Google Plus?
Use the Visual Composer to create a social widget, add your own social icons there, then turn to Classic Editor to see the exact shortcode text!

Yes, it worked! Thanks! :)

You're welcome! :)

For Google plus icon: just set "googleplus" ;)
Does anybody know where the rb_social shortcode "code" is located in the theme or the WP install? I've been looking, but cannot find it.
It's in the Visual Composer plugin - /plugins/js_composer/config/shortcodes-front.php

I've got the icons in the header, but how do you link them to my facebook profile etc.
9:50 on January 22, 2014
Replace # with your link.
9:50 on January 23, 2014
Is there a way to get them to open in a new window ?
Sure, add target="_blank" to the shortcode..
