With Gmail, you can customize the signature shown at the bottom of every email you send out. Adding a link to your Facebook account (or Twitter or LinkedIn) is a useful tool for growing your social network and giving people additional ways to connect with you.

Customize 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. What we are here for is to show you how to add social profile links to your Gmail signature.

Then select the URL, right-click and then select "Copy" from the menu that appears. Alternatively, press Ctrl + C.

Next, enter your information. As I said before, we leave this section to you. While there are several different signature styles out there, you should have something in line with this when you are done.

 Signature example

You may have noticed that many e-signatures contain favicons. You can safely use them, but be sure to obey the respective organization's brand resource rules. Facebook clearly describes the guidelines for you, as well as most social platforms out there. Don't break any laws.

Back to your signature, continue and select the text you want to add the profile link you copied earlier. Once you have selected, click on the "Insert link" icon.

 highlight text

The "Edit link" window appears. Next to the box "Text to display" you should see the previously marked text. If you used a favicon instead of text, you will see the image name followed by the image format type.

Then paste the profile link you copied to the "Web address" box by right-clicking and selecting "Paste" or by pressing Ctrl + V. When finished, click "OK".

 Insert link

You will now notice the highlighted text is now underlined and blue. You will also see a "Go to Link" message if you place the cursor over the text. This is your second chance to make sure the URL has been entered correctly.

Now all that is left to do is scroll to the bottom and select "Save Changes." Your Gmail signature with a working Facebook link will now appear at the bottom of every email you send. Just repeat these steps for your other social accounts.
