When adding social icons to your email signature, make sure you use a URL shortening service for your social profile. For example, if you are adding a Facebook icon to your email signature, first copy the URL of your Facebook profile, go to a service like and shorten your Facebook profile URL. Then insert that shortened URL as the link on your social button. The reason you would do this is some social media app’s on smartphones will automatically open links that are to do with their brand. For example, if you try to open a conventional ‘’ link on a smartphone, it will automatically open in the Facebook app rather than in a browser.
