This is the documentation for concrete5 version 5.6 and earlier. View Current Documentation

First of all search for the desired Awesome icon here. In this example search for "stackexchange".

  1. Click on the icon in the result list.

  2. The HTML-code for the icon appears: ... class="fa fa-stack-exchange"....

  3. Copy just the stack-exchangepart without the fa fa-. Concrete5 is taking care of it.

  4. In your project, go to /application/config/generated_overrides/concrete.php.

  5. You'll see a return array(... with some entries like 'site => 'sitename', 'version_installed =>' and so on. After the last entries closing parenthisis and before the last closing parenthesis ); add the following code:

), // the last entries closing parenthisis

     // Don't forget the comma. Your code goes here:
     'social' => array(
        'additional_services' => array(
                'stackexchange', // the handle
                'StackExchange', // the title which will be shown in the dropdown
                'stack-exchange', // the icon name copied before

); // The last closing parenthesis

That's it. Upload the file, empty site cache and you'll have a new entry in the Social Link Service Dropdown. Note that the Awesome icon needs to exist.
