    Just a reminder that when your are putting your social networking links on your profile links you don not need to put http:// Just start at the www.

    Otherwise this spits a URL like this: [url]http://http//www.facebook.com/album.php?profile&id=1140201431[/url] which is just plain silly.

    3 out of five links I clink on are like that, so please check yours.

    P.S This is a great opportunity to ask everyone to always check your links, wherever you put them.

    Cheers

    Matt

    Hi Matt,
    Thanks for the reminder!

    Folks, as Matt says, please check your Twitter etc links and remove the extra http if it’s there. We do have this issue on the list of things we want to fix, but have been told by our tech support that we may be stuck with it for a while longer.

    Sorry!
    Jayne

    Good post Matt.

    I have informed at least 2 people this week about their LinkedIn links.

    Great reminder thanks Matthew – people also get confused about what to put in emails – in emails the http:// IS needed, I get so many emails with just www that I can’t click through on.

    I am going to check my links now! I use bit.ly so I may not give it enough attention. Tell me if you ever see mine being incorrect please!
    Rachel.
