Fonts and Colors Used by Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and More

This article was updated in 2020 to show the newer fonts and colors used by social networks, including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and various others. Google+ didn’t make a comeback.

Social login buttons, links to social media channels — in 2020 this is still a thing in web design and app design. I mean, what business isn’t on social media these days? It’s a necessity!

Knowing what the different fonts and colors used by social networks are (so that we can use them in our designs) is quite handy. It’s something we “google” every time we design an app or website. (For example, “Facebook blue”, “Facebook hex value”, “What is the color used by Facebook?”, and so on).

In fact, I bet that’s how you found this article!

Well, I won’t keep you waiting any more. Let’s take a look at the fonts and colors used by Messenger (by Facebook), Instagram (by Facebook), WhatsApp (by Facebook), Facebook itself, Twitter, Pinterest, LinkedIn, Snapchat, and finally, Google/YouTube.

What’s the font used by […]? 🤔

Quick note: system fonts (i.e. : system-ui in CSS) are the standard unless otherwise stated. For each medium, this means:

  • Roboto for Android
  • Segoe UI for Windows
  • San Francisco for iOS/macOS

Material design (i.e. YouTube and other Google apps) also uses Roboto. However, the actual Google logo uses Google’s very own Product Sans font (and this applies to the Alphabet logo too).
