  • Social network fields for the site, social connect widget, user profile, etc, optionally accept full URL’s instead of only the network user ID. Useful for some social networks like LinkedIn that can have multiple URL types like ‘linkedin.com/in/username’ (default) or ‘linkedin.com/company/username’ (for companies). Users with a company profile should paste the full URL instead, otherwise the output URL will be the default ‘linkedin.com/in/username’
