social media logos

During my training I am provided with a grey/white twitter and facebook logo. Is there a way for me to get the same formatted logos for Google+, LinkedIn, Youtube, etc.? I'd like to include these versions in my final website.

This is what icon fonts are for, fontawesome has a nice selection of brand icons that can easily resized and have backgrounds modified all with CSS.

They are pretty simple to use http://codepen.io/jamesbarnett/pen/ngbIw

Beautiful! Thanks so much!

Hi John - you could always try re-creating the logos in Photoshop or another image editing programme, alternatively try searching for an image set on a website such as http://www.iconfinder.com

The last one may be quicker for you as you will probably be able to find all social network logos in a consistent style.

Thanks so much!

haha! Thanks for that Anthony. I'm not sure how that happened either and quite frankly didn't even notice those options until you said something!

Quick summary of what they are for sir? Some sort of rating I'm guessing on the answers?

No problem - good luck with your progress!

Hi John, that's exactly it - they are a nice way for participants on the thread to vote and answer up or down based on how helpful or valid they think the answer is. It also helps people later down the line, when they are browsing for support or answers to questions, hope that helps!

I'm not sure if the instructor said where they got their logos from but one website I remember hearing them mention was Icomoon. Here's the link to the free icon pack page: http://icomoon.io/#preview-free
