Awesome! We just had someone asking about this a few weeks ago. She will be happy to know it's possible now :)

What does the group feel about the value of SM icons showing in the Graph?

I'm all about schema markup and have recently added "star review" that are now showing in the SERPS which so far has had a marked CTR increase.

Many searches that show the Graph actually leads to lower CTR for publishers...why go to the site when the answer is right in front of you?

Lastly if you are posting on a regular basis to FB or G+ these will be in the top 5 for your brand search. Our FB page is #2 right below our main site.

Happy Friday!

Thank you for posting this. I just entered the code for one of my sites, we'll see how it turns out.

As Howell mentioned, I'm not sure whether or not this is good for sites, but we'll see.

Thanks!

I tried this and it doesn't seem to have worked. However, there are two possible mistakes in the way that I tried it. Are these mistakes?

1. I entered the "name" as A Servant's Heart In-Home Care. Should I have entered it with a slash in front of the apostrophe, like this: A Servant/'s Heart In-Home Care

2. I added it to the theme's settings footer script's field, along with the GA and other scripts. Was it wrong to place it there?

Thanks!

Here's the code that I entered:

HTML:
<!-- The following is to cause Google Knowledge Graph to include display links to social profiles -->
<script type="application/ld+json">
{ "@context" : "http://schema.org",
  "@type" : "Organization",
  "name" : "A Servant's Heart In-Home Care",
  "url" : "http://www.trustworthycare.com",
  "sameAs" : [ "https://www.facebook.com/AServantsHeartCareSolutions",
    "http://www.twitter.com/yourProfile",
    "https://plus.google.com/+TrustworthyCare",
	"https://www.linkedin.com/company/605160"] 
}
</script>

Keep in mind that it will take Google some time to revisit your page, it's not going to show up right after coding.

As for the / thing, just depends on how you want the markup to display.

Lastly use the Google Structured data tool to debug any issues.
