In Gmail, you can customize the signature that appears at the bottom of every e-mail you send. Adding a link to your account on Facebook (or Twitter or LinkedIn) is a useful tool to expand your social network and give people additional ways to connect with you.

Customizing Your Gmail Signature

Your email signature is essentially your virtual business card. It should include your name, title and organization, contact information and links to social channels. Keep it tidy and professional.

We leave the content to you, and we'll show you how to add social profile links to your Gmail signature.

 Signature example

You may have noticed that many e-mail signatures contain favorites. You can certainly use them, but keep in mind the brand resource rules of each organization. Facebook makes these guidelines clear to you, as well as most social platforms. Do not break laws.

When you return to your signature, highlight the text to which you want to add the previously copied profile link. After marking, click on the "Insert link" icon.

 Highlight text

The Edit Link window appears. Next to the "Text to display" box, the previously highlighted text should be displayed. If you have used a favicon instead of text, the name of the image will be displayed followed by the image format type.

Now paste the profile link you copied into the "Web address" box by right-clicking on it and selecting "Paste" or selecting it by pressing Ctrl + V. When done, click "OK ".

 Insert link

The highlighted text is now underlined and displayed in blue. Hovering over the text will also display the message "Go to Link". Here's your second chance to make sure the URL was entered correctly.

 Inserted link for Facebook

Now all you have to do is scroll down and select "Save changes". Your Gmail signature with a working Facebook link will now appear at the bottom of every email you send. Repeat these steps easily for your other social accounts.
