WHAT IT IS
This is a new, optional contact method that has been added to store Social Media account information. When enabled, this will appear alongside the existing Phone, Address, and Email contacts.
WHAT IT DOES
This feature stores social media information—there is no direct integration with any of the social media platforms at this time.
Social contact methods can be selected for Notifications, but function like a Phone Call notification meaning nothing happens automatically. This is strictly for recording purposes.

available System Option, and then define your desired Social Media Types.
Click Administrative → System Options.
Scroll down to Customer Options.
Set the Show Social Button on Contacts Screen option to True.
Social Media Types:
