Adding links to your Social Networking and IM accounts

If you have a profile on a popular social networking website, or have an IM screen name that you want to share with other members of the forum, you can add those links to your member profile! To add in the links to your other social accounts, click the Profile button found in the top menu bar, and then on your profile page click the Edit Profile button. You'll then be taken to the Edit Profile & Settings page, click the Social tab found here.

Once you're on the social tab of the Edit Profile page, you'll see the page is broken down into two sections:

Social Websites:

  • Facebook
  • Google Plus
  • LinkedIn
  • Twitter
  • YouTube

Instant Messengers:

  • AIM (AOL Instant Messenger)
  • ICQ
  • YIM (Yahoo Instant Messenger)
  • Skype

Simply fill out the text box that represents the social network that you want to have linked to your profile! If you are filling out one of the options in the Social Websites category, you can use the Test Link to have a new tab open in your web browser just to be sure that the link you provided was correct. Once you have the social area updated to your liking, click the Save Social Settings button found at the bottom of the page. After this is completed, you and other members of the forum will see your social links when visiting your full profile.
