I haven't seen one yet, but if one exists, that would be great.

    You would use it so link to your stack overflow/super user/server fault profile on your website...that's what they are used for... Jul 22, 2010 at 22:54

    social buttons like those above are for sharing content, not linking to profile - have you ever clicked on one? ;-) Jul 23, 2010 at 0:26
  • Steven: I've also seen them used to link to profile pages. Jul 23, 2010 at 2:05
  • I wouldn't mind seeing this. ask a question then see if someone on fb or twitter can answer it.

I wouldn't call it a "social button" because of the connotation, I'd just call it an icon. That being said, yes someone's made one:

  • This is just what I'm looking for, but that's now gone. Any idea where to find it? Jun 4, 2011 at 22:51

Got flair?

NB: You'll also find this link in your profile...

    Really? I mean they are bits of web code for you to put places like...um...your website, and they...um...link to your Stack Overflow profile. Jul 22, 2010 at 23:24
  • Yes, but they aren't buttons...they are flair. It's nitpicky, I know. But a social button is a small square button (usually no larger than 60x60) that simply links to your profile page. There is no text on the button other than the logo of the site being linked to. Jul 22, 2010 at 23:26
  • @Thomas So this is like a social button, only much more useful? Jul 23, 2010 at 2:59
  • Michael: More useful, yet. But if you are using other social buttons to link to your facebook, twitter, and linked in profiles, then flair really sticks out like a sore thumb. Jul 23, 2010 at 9:21

If you want to link to a user profile simply click the got flair? link on your user page:


We only do this on public betas.

for example on http://photos.stackexchange.com (currently in public beta)
