I see that adding facebook, twitter addresses doesn’t add links to their pages. Instead, it gives visitors the option to follow them. The problem with this is that while it’s a nice easy way to follow or like the business, I doubt most visitors would want to.
Why? Well, because in a directory setting, it’s likely this would be the first time someone has even become aware of the existence of the business on the listing. I think what most people expect is a link to the social media pages in question. What they get is to see that a facebook page exists, but no way to pull it up, why is frustrating.
Could you consider changing the way this works, or add an option to change it, please?
Even better, add something like font-awesome, so we can use the icons to link.
Also, why not add instagram, pinterest etc?
Thanks for listening!
Thanks for taking the time and sharing your suggestion on this. This happens to be a popular request in our forum and something we already have on our list of enhancements. We’ll definitely work on adding better options for linking FB, Twitter profiles etc. as well as support for Instagram and Pinterest. Right now, you can create a custom text field (with URL validator) to add Facebook/Twitter page link to the listing, if you want.
