Social media sites such as Twitter, MySpace and Facebook allow users to stay in touch with family and friends. For social media users, the Internet is taking the place of writing letters, talking to people on the phone or even keeping journals. If you have your own website, whether for business or personal use, putting a link to a social media site such as Facebook is a great way to encourage networking. Adding a link to your site is simple and only takes a few minutes.

Tips and warnings

  • For maximum exposure, place the link to your Facebook account near the top of your website.
  • Use the tools Facebook provides to share more than just a link to your profile page.
  • Allow the link to open in a new window or tab to prevent users from leaving your website altogether. Simply add target="_blank" after the Facebook profile URL. Example:
  • FACEBOOKNAMEHERE
