Several weeks ago some businesses were seeing that they could edit their social profiles within Google Business Profiles. But most businesses did not have access to this feature. Now it seems to be rolling out to all businesses.

Darren Shaw noticed it was available for his business and posted about it on X, saying this was a "global rollout" of this feature. Indeed! I see it as well.

So I added it for my company and the social icons were updated within ten minutes.

Here is the edit screen:

And they did indeed show up within a few minutes for my local panel for a search on my company name on Google Search.

Here are the formats you need to use for the URL:
