social links

I have attached my social links to my account for 100% of the completed profile, but they are not displayed for 3 days. Why?

They never will be displayed. Why would Upwork give clients access to ways to contact you outside Upwork?

They are purely for Upwork internal purposes.

I linked two accounts, Facebook and Google +, but they still ask to add a link for 100% of the profile. Why?

Why don't you add an extra employment item? Just add "Freelance Graphic Designer and Illustrator" - that'll give you an extra 10%

I added, but this did not add me 10%. But why not connect social networks?

As far as I can see your profile should be at 100%, especially if you already added the social profile... I wonder if there is a bug, there was one before which stopped the profile completeness updating properly.

Maybe best to contact Support at this point.

 

Hi Ilona,

 

Just to confirm that we have a known issue with connecting Facebook but not for Google.
Our team will investigate this further and share more details with you as soon as possible on your newest ticket, thank you.

Thank! What are my next steps?

Social links won't display on your profile. Go to your settings > profile settings to check if they are linked or not.

I do not want to show them on the page, I want to link them to the account for 100% connectedness of the profile. But they are not contacted! Or how to understand what they contacted?

Ilona,

If your social accounts get connected, there will be a "Cross-mark" appear on them as an option to disconnect.

Just like here I have linked my Facebook and  Google+

Which part of "there is a bug" did you have trouble understanding?

It is not necessary to link social media accounts to your UW account in order to achieve a 100% profile. I have never linked mine.
