    Not sure how you came up with these values, but a couple I checked are not correct.

    Sample the LinkedIn logo here: It’s not #4875b4

    Also try – it’s not #00acf1 as you state.

    • Nick Georgiou

      Aww, man! I will have to go through and verify them all and add my sources. Thanks so much for checking up on those. I have updated the errors and will let you know once I’ve checked up on the rest.

  • Shannon Young

    You should add Quora Burgundy – a82400 (Source: Eyedropper on Logo)

    • Nick Georgiou

      Great! Thanks, Shannon! I’ll get onto it soon.

  • Eddie Lee

    Thanks! Just what I was looking for! How about Yelp?

  • Galen Gidman

    Nice roundup Nick! I actually created an entire website for this very thing —

    • Amelie Ju-on

      Great list and nice presentation, Galen! I’m doing a set of one-color social media icons and this was JUST what I needed. I’d love to see sources/additional colors added in the future too :)

  • Mary Henderson

    Thanks for the quick reference guide. I was able to use these to create graphics in the links below. (Had to wing it for Blogger and RSS feed though)

    I’m a grad student working on an emerging media class. As part of a “buzz-building” assignment I decided to experiment and create social media-themed images available under a create commons license to see if it would build traffic. So far Flickr is working great, Pinterest is OK, and Reddit is fabulous if my psyche can cope with all the down votes!

    Wish I had found your site sooner…

    Nice, cheers handy resource

  • Tim Nolte

    Looks like you’ve got the Google+ HEX value wrong. It should be #bb4b39.

  • Amelie Ju-on

    This is excellent! Thanks for adding sources! If you happen to find the official logo color, that’d be helpful: all their logos I’ve seen have gradients so sampling the right color is iffy.
