Current social media services?

The Timeline theme has an option to include font awesome social media icons from a pre-populated list. I want to update that list by removing rarely used and/or adding services that are considered current. I don't really do much in the way of social media personally, so I could use some input as to which services are current/popular and which might be in the list, but have more or less died.

Timeline currently offers the following social networking/service icons:

Amazon, Digg, Dribbble, Dropbox, Facebook, Flickr, Github, Google, Google Plus, Instagram, LastFM, LinkedIn, Paypal, Pinterest, RSS, Skype, Reddit, Stumbleupon, Tumblr, Twitter, Vimeo, Vine, Xing, Youtube.

Should any be removed? Any suggestions to include other services? Suggestions for new icons is only possible if they are available via the latest font awesome icons.

* Google recently announced that Google Plus will be shut down.
* StumbleUpon was shut down in June 2018 in favor of a new platform called Mix.
* Vine does not allow for new uploads since January 2017, but the platform still exists (i.e. you can still access old content.

I have not heard of those either, but as I mentioned, to be included, there has to be a font awesome icon for the service.

Using your theme on my first non wordpress website :) Thank you for your work!

You can add Voat.co, Gab.com and VK.com?

I think you've already removed G+

Btw, how can I improve the editor? Too few options.. I like to jazz up my posts but it ain't nothing compared to wordpress
