Let’s add a Facebook link as an example. Firstly we need to find the Facebook profile we wish to link to.
- Login to Facebook.
- Navigate to your profile page or the profile page of your business.
- Copy the URL of the Facebook profile page eg – https://www.facebook.com/LightSpeedWordPressDevelopment/
- Paste the link into the “Facebook” social link field.
