    How to Get Social Media Icons on GMB or Knowledge Box?

    Hi there
    I am using Moz with Google My Business. Somehow along the way I got GMB to show a Twitter icon but it would not show a Facebook icon.

    I have even removed Twitter from Moz and left Facebook URL but still, Twitter shows on GMB.

    Suggestions? Ideas? Alternatives? I don't know that anyone actually goes to social media from Google My Business/ Knowledge Box but it's worth a try :-)

    Thank you!

    You can use the SameAs schema found in this post. Instead of the GMB in your case you'd enter the Facebook URL. It's not 100% but it helps signal to G that the two are indeed related.
