Are your social media links going where you think they’re going?

Have you ever clicked on a business’s “Follow Me on Facebook!” link, only to be taken to your own Facebook account? Or to Facebook’s homepage? Or to something even more confusing?

How does this happen? In many cases, the person who created the link was logged into their own Facebook account at the time, so the link they’re linking to isn’t their unique profile link: it’s instead an incorrect generic one.

Not sure if your links are working properly? Here’s a quick test. Log out of all your accounts and then test your links. Do they all go directly to the correct pages?

Your Facebook link should look something like this:
https://www.facebook.com/NightDayProductions (replace the bold type with your own name or business)

Your Twitter link should look something like this:
https://twitter.com/Nish_iSood

Your LinkedIn link should look something like this:
http://ca.linkedin.com/in/nishisood

Your Instagram link should look something like this:https://www.instagram.com/nishi_sood/

Take a minute and do the test! It’s amazing how many incorrect links I stumble across every week. Something as simple as a “link to nowhere” could be costing you followers and possible business!
