Hello there! I sent this question into Envato Support but got a generic response back that didn’t really help so I’ll post it here to see if the community can help me.

When using social network icons on your themes, I see a lot of custom icons made that fairly represent the social networks such as twitter/facebook. Some of these are made by the theme devs, others used from various licenses. However, when querying about using the twitter and facebook icons to use on my own theme, I find on twitter and facebook terms that they do not allow you to manipulate the logo at all:

https://twitter.com/logo https://www.facebook.com/brandpermissions/logos.php

Clearly a lot of themes on TF use their own logos, so I’m wondering whether I’ve misread or something else? Is it because the logos TF developers use are custom made? Any clarification on this would be grateful :)

Most authors dont ‘manipulate’ social media logos. Manipulate is a negative term anyway.

Authors might present the social media logos in a different way, but the core would be the same f for facebook or t for twitter. However since these are massive websites they are also recognized by icons that arent necessarily their own logos but still represent those websites. For example the bird for twitter, you will see 1000s of variations of the bird on websites all representing twitter. People recognize it so it just works that way. Hope that answers your question.

I get why people use the icons- It just that it states on the Twitter page not to change the logo at all, like I see a lot of rotated bird twitter icons on themes, which is specifically states you’re not allowed to do.
