How to Add Twitter or Facebook Information to Your iPad Contacts

You can add Twitter information to a contact on your iPad so that you can quickly follow contacts via Twitter or enter Facebook account information so that you can go to your contact’s Facebook page.

  1. With Contacts open, tap a contact.

  2. Tap the Edit button.

  3. Scroll down and tap Add Social Profile.

  4. In the Twitter field that appears, enter a Twitter handle.


  5. If you want to create a different social networking field, tap Add Social Profile.

    A Facebook field appears. You can tap again to get a Flickr account, a LinkedIn account, and so on.

    If you prefer to add Facebook information instead of Twitter, tap Add Social Profile just under the Twitter field and enter the contact’s Facebook information. (You can also click the Add Social Profile link again and choose Flickr, LinkedIn, Myspace, Sina Welbo, or Add Custom Service in the fields that appear.)

  6. Tap Done, and the information is saved.

    The account is now displayed when you select the contact, and you can send a Twitter, Facebook, or other message simply by tapping the username for a service and choosing the appropriate command (such as Tweet).
