Add your social accounts

By default, your Bio Site contains a Socials section beneath your profile information. Use this section to display a row of icons linking to your social accounts. You can move or delete this section at any time.

If you use Autofill to populate content in your Bio Site, the Socials section automatically populates with the links from the Social links panel of your Squarespace site.

If the icon for the social account you want to add doesn't appear, or to add multiple accounts for a single social platform, you can add links to those accounts manually.

Add your links

Links you add in the Links section display as a vertical list in the body of your Bio Site.
