This is the window that will appear before you have connected any social media profiles. You can see that you can quickly link your Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn pages.

4. Click on the links for each platform. For example, with Twitter, you click on “Add Twitter Profile.” You will see a screen asking for authorization.
