Add FaceBook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Other Social Profiles to iPhone Contacts
Many of your contacts probably have social profiles they use on services like Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Flickr, and these social profiles can be added to their existing contact card information easily in iOS.
This makes it so when you look at an iPhone contact on iPhone or iPad, you will see those contacts social media profiles to services like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Linkedin, Flickr, and others. Of course you can then reach out to those people through their social media profiles too.
Here’s how you can set up this great feature for iPhone contacts:
How to Add Social Media Profiles to iPhone Contacts
- Open Contacts and tap a contact that you wish to edit
- Tap the “Edit” button in the upper right corner
- Scroll down and tap on “Add Field” and then select “Twitter” for Twitter, or “Profile” for Facebook
- Enter the contacts Twitter username in the field then hit “Return” to see “Facebook” appear as an additional entry point directly below, enter the Facebook username and hit return to see additional social profiles for other services including Flickr, Linkedin, and even Myspace
Once the contacts social profiles have been added, you can then tap on them to perform various tasks. With Twitter profiles, you can then directly send a tweet to the user, or view that users tweets from the Twitter app. Tapping on the username of other social profiles will either open the respective app if it’s installed on the device, or launch Safari directly to their profile.
