    Hi there,

    I want to link my facebook page to my Gmail signature. It works fine to use the URL you provide for the facebook icon, but then I’m stuck when I try to link that image to my facebook page link. Gmail just doesnt want to open the ‘link’ box. What am I doing wrong?


    • Alisa Meredith

      Hi Marianne. Thanks for your reply. Are you making sure something (whether image or text) is selected before you hit the “link” box? What happens when you hit the link box? Have you tried in another browser?

  2. It’s worked great for my Yahoo mail signature – thanks for your great explanation!

  3. Great article, Alisa, and easy-to-follow directions!

  4. Alisa Meredith

    Thanks, Robin. Glad you liked it!!

  5. Hi Alisa,

    I was wondering is there a wade to include a image for facebook that when clicked will like us not just bring them to our facebook page and then they have to click like?

    Thank you in advance

    • Alisa Meredith

      Thanks for stopping by, Richard! No, sadly there is not. It’s a policy issue with them. You can see how it could be abused by unscrupulous people.

    Hello Alisa,

    Thanks for the great explanation of this signature process. Just wanted to know, do I need to provide attribution to Scalable Social Media when using an image for a commercial purpose? I want to include the image on a company-wide signature block, and I want to be sure doing so is on the level.

    Thanks again!

    • Alisa Meredith

      Hi Scott. Thanks for stopping by! I’m glad we could help, and no, there is no need for any attribution – but it was very kind of you to ask!

    Thanks for this article. Running into problems, though.
    So I can get the FB icon in my signature, but when I select the image and try to link the actual address, it simply puts the link address next to the icon? Any ideas?

    URL Error. Including the #! in the twitter link makes the link not work in Internet Explorer (IE) you are taken to the main twitter page.!/scalablesocial

    Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this site.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s difficult to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and visual
    appeal. I must say you’ve done a fantastic job with this.

    Additionally, the blog loads super quick for me on Opera. Exceptional Blog!

  13. I have been surfing online more than 2 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It’s pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all site owners and bloggers made good content
    as you did, the internet will be much more useful than
    ever before.
