For most job seekers, LinkedIn is the only social media account that is necessary or appropriate to include in a resume. Yet there are numerous roles where other digital professional profiles may be included or even expected, especially those where a portfolio of work is often evaluated early in the hiring process. You know who you are. YouTube videos, Instagram stories, or Twitter feeds are all appropriate, and should be referred to by their respective handles, not full URLs. Avoid Facebook: it is not commonly regarded as a professional source, and some organizations may even block access.
All social media accounts that you do include should appear in a section of your resume separate from the body text (such as the header on a traditional resume, or Contacts on an infographic resume). If a URL or any social media tagged text appears in the body of the resume, it will not likely be scanned correctly by an ATS, which will usually cause the resume to be rejected automatically.
