Exciting new feature that is part of your EzineArticles membership account: Ability to add links to your social media/networking sites!
Example: (my EzineArticles extended author bio page)
Benefit of this? Gives you the chance to use your exposure on EzineArticles to help you build new or reinforce existing relationships via various key social networking sites.
We’ve made the decision to support these sites: LinkedIN, FaceBook, MySpace, Twitter & FriendFeed
Here’s the 6 simple steps on how to quickly add your social media links:
- Log in to your EzineArticles membership author interface.
- Click on PROFILE MANAGER
- Click on EDIT AUTHOR BIO
- Select the author (or yourself) you want to edit the profile for.
- Look near the top/middle of the URL section immediately below the “Blog URL” box and you’ll see the new fields that you can enter your social media URL’s that will guide visitors to be able to find you.
- Scroll down and click on the green SAVE CHANGES button & you’re done!
The EzineArticles extended author bio page only shows up on the live site when you’ve entered your AUTHOR BIO and uploaded your AUTHOR PHOTO. Note that your AUTHOR BIO is not a resource box and is simple overview of who you are, who you help, and what your core expertise is. ie: It’s not a hard sell.
All of the social media URL fields are OPTIONAL & not required. That means if you don’t include one, it won’t show up on your profile.
