It is the end of year 2015 and most logos have not changed, but to give you more up to date answer, here are some facts:

  • Google has switched to Product Sans,
  • Facebook a personnalisé its classic Klavika based logo, which became famous for hard corners and very slight variations between thick and thin parts in letters. The new logo is supposed to be more friendly,
  • Famous site Fiverr uses font called Chunk Five,
  • Netflix has simplified its stylish looking logo based on Graphique Pro. New version of the logo features no "3D effect" which nicely resembled some of the 80's movie posters....

I came across this site some time ago with a massive list of fonts used in logos, ranging from corporate giants like Canon, to the font face for movies like Batman: Famous Fonts | UrbanFonts.com

However, I still can't work out if these fonts came fist before the logo, or whether these fonts were inspired by the logos.

Usually, the logo will have been significantly altered from the standard font. For a more generalized answer albeit with inconsistent results mostly due to those alterations, try these:

The Twitter and facebook logos use custom type and so do many other popular sites. If you want to use a font you can go with the following (and naturally many others):

  • Helvetica
  • Gotham
  • Gotham rounded

It really depends on your design, product and what you're trying to achieve.
