We just pushed live an updated set of Social Network Icons: 500px, Instagram, YouTube, Tumblr, and a few other logos should now be updated. This impacts Profile and Social Icons Content Blocks.

Let me know if you have any questions / concerns.

    500px small icon issue
    Hi,

    Thanks for the update!
    I think there is something to be done with 500px icon in a small format. It looks weird, see my attached screenshot.

    I concur with you that it is difficult to read in the small format, unfortunately, that's the problem that 500px created when they went with a complicated Mark like their new logo. We have to work within the usage rights that they set out and we're unable to alter the mark to look great at small sizes. I might recommend trying a large size Social Icon to improve the readability, especially as the internet is shifting towards larger font sizes and larger images in its design aesthetic.

    Thanks for the reply. Didn't know 500px has redesigned their logo. You are right, it is complicated and not friendly design-wise. Guess, I will have to enlarge the icons.
