@punchbugindy, As I was considering adding certain social media profiles, I was thinking I def wouldn’t add G+, because I don’t have a custom URL. Not only would it look crazy to have it written out, but no one would crazy enough to type it.
I do think it’s important as a web developer to show “at a glance” that I understand the importance of social media by at least including select icons. For ease of contact, perhaps it is good to include a URL. Maybe for some, seeing those icons would encourage visiting your website.
@supereb, I tend to think of the front of my card as showing the critical minimum, and the back of the card as offering more info to those who might have interest. What I thought about including on the back was brief overview of services and select social media.
@plasticprinters, It does make sense that the QR code along with the social media icons would suggest a way to access more info, all ways of connecting.
Thank you all for your thoughts!—–
I’m wondering if it would make sense (to the end user) to have the icon signify the domain (or platform) then to the right see the profile URL. For example, icon /whitbeckweb
