Hi @Matiss.Jekabsons,
Thanks for the effort on contributing to WordPress core

However, this really isn't in scope for the WordPress project. One of WordPress's philosophies is "design for the masses" (80/20 rule), and while Dashicons only supports a couple of the top 15 websites, Draugiem isn't even in the top 25 social networks by a very very long shot by any survey I could find. While Draugiem might be very big in Latvia, it's not used by very many else (based on it's 2 million user count)

Unfortunately, this isn't a good candidate for core inclusion for this reason.

However, you could still package what you've created as a plugin at upload it to WordPress.org, so users of Draugiem can still get a dashicon for it.

I'll tag this as close, just in case someone has a convincing (and well-supported) ranking that I've missed.

From ticket:34166:3:

For now we've decided not to add new social icons to Dashicons, since they're covered pretty well by a lot of major icon fonts and don't have a huge dashboard use-case. However, if you want to make an argument for it, you can open up a new ticket at https://github.com/WordPress/dashicons.
