What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 122 Stack Exchange communities.

I'd like to add buttons to my blog that link to Twitter, LinkedIn, and StackOverflow. There are tons of nice social media icon sets out there, but I've yet to find one that includes StackOverflow. Anyone seen one?

Edit: I'm not trying to post to SO from an external site. I just want to link to my profile.

Update: at Adam Davis's suggestion, I requested someone add one to a set I liked, and he did. You can get them here.

You can't share and post a link to Stack Overflow –  Eight Days of Malaise Aug 10 '11 at 17:57

@Eight I don't think he wants a "Post on StackOverflow" button akin to a "Tweet this post" button, I think he wants to link to SO or his SO profile with a nice image (like linking to his Twitter profile with a Twitter icon). –  Matthew Read Aug 10 '11 at 18:38

Must be because even outside icon sites know Stack Exchange isn't a social media swamp –  random Aug 10 '11 at 18:38
    
@random not sure what your point is. I'm trying to do something stackexchange clearly condones. I just don't want to use the huge flair images. I'd rather have a consistent set of icons that link to my profiles on a few sites. –  chrispix Aug 10 '11 at 22:11
    
@chrispix I realize this is an old question, but I found a pack that includes Stack Overflow: Vector Social Media Icons. Scroll until you see "Update #4." –  Matt Refghi Jan 24 '12 at 14:48
    
Thanks @MattRefghi, that's a nice set. There's also a set at wplift.com/freebie-70-32px-custom-social-media-website-icons. –  chrispix Jan 24 '12 at 22:52
    
There is also a 64px PNG icon here: dinochiesa.net There is not a full set of icons - only a handful. But they're the most important ones! I started with the Stucco icon set (google it) and added a few others. –  Cheeso Jun 15 '12 at 2:55
    
There's also this set, which includes Stack Overflow: paulrobertlloyd.com/2009/06/social_media_icons –  Joe Masilotti Jul 10 '12 at 12:09

I'm not sure if you're asking for a way to link to specific posts or just the site in general; I'm assuming it's the latter.

You can use flair if you want it to link to your profile:

If you want something non-user-specific, you can pull the site logo from here and make it a link:

Yes, I'm trying to link to my profile. I was looking at icon sets because I'd rather have a consistent set of icons. Thanks for the tips. –  chrispix Aug 10 '11 at 22:19

you can download the vector format on our logos page as well. –  Jin Aug 10 '11 at 23:17
    
@Jin Are there plans to add logos for all of the Stack Exchange sites rather than just the trilogy? –  Chris Frederick Oct 28 '11 at 19:14
    
@Chris it may get too crowded on that page for all SE sites. We plan to have a page off each SE site, with all the media files in the future. –  Jin Oct 30 '11 at 18:28

Update #4 to the Vector Social Media Icons Pack from Icon Dock includes a Stack Overflow icon:

Check out the SO icon

No, I've not seen a set that includes stack overflow, however we have a lot of pixel wranglers in our midst.

If you choose a common set that is popular, and ask someone to make a matching stackoverflow icon, I bet someone would oblige, especially if you made it trivial for them by providing example images, and the sizes they would need to output.

Good idea. Thanks Adam. –  chrispix Aug 10 '11 at 23:24
