Looks like you may be using a custom style. The icons for the new FB/Google+/Twitter login links need to be copied to your custom styles folder.

yes but how? i have tried but i mess up
From Brogan's guide....
There are some new images so if you have a custom style directory you will need to copy those to the relevant folder.
They are:
  • styles\my-style\xenforo\gplus.png
  • styles\my-style\xenforo\twitter-bird.png
  • styles\my-style\xenforo\icons\missing-image.png
For example, if your custom style is using /styles/{mystyle}/xenforo then you'll need to copy /styles/default/xenforo/twitter-bird.png to /styles/{mystyle}/xenforo/twitter-bird.png.

If you post a link to your site we can likely see what folder it is looking for that you need to copy them to.

If you change those images, be careful since you might not be in compliance with the branding for those companies. Google, for example, recently contacted somebody else about how their XF login button was working (http://xenforo.com/community/threads/issue-with-google.71380).

Personally I would advise to just use the stock images that come with XF since the XF guys have already done the research in how the buttons need to appear.

Point being... doesn't matter whether they are "outdated" or not... if that's what Google wants you to use it's "highly recommended" that you use it. No telling what nasty stuff google could do considering that they have the power of Google Search (and inclusion/exclusion).

And the problem with your images is going to be specific to your style.

They should be in your original archive... and this basically applies to the Google Plus. Here is a short section of their commenting:
Matching your own app's style:
You may create a custom Google+ Sign-In button to match your app's style. For example, you can customize it using a style similar to other sign-in buttons with:

  • Same color of visual treatment
  • Same font
  • Same shape and size
  • Similar button text
