If you are a member of social media networks it is very important that you add them to your profile here on Mogul. Why you may ask! Of course, other members may want to follow you but also; each time you post an article, video or photos other members have the opportunity to share them with their social media sites and followers giving you the credit as the author.
To the left of your finished article, you will see that Mogul currently offers to share to Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Email and eventually LinkedIn. [See image below]
When shared on Twitter, for example, the tweet will include your @Twitter handle if you have set up your profile correctly.

3. Here is where you will add the Social Media sites you belong to. It is very important that you follow these instructions to make sure that the links will work and not give an error when clicked or shared:
4. Now you are almost done:
5. Now Click on your Profile. To make sure you have done everything correctly, click on your website link and the Social Media Icons to see if they direct to the correct locations:
