Right now, when a user goes to edit the personal portfolio page, we have a text box for every single third-party connection we offer (see screenshot). This leads to a pretty cluttered page, and the layout is not ideal, as some third-party options are on the left side of the page and some are on the right.

Would it be possible to consolidate those options (LinkedIn, Fb, Twitter, Github, etc) into a single field where users could choose from a drop-down list of services and add a new one by clicking on the name of the service they wish to add? I am thinking of something like this:

Add links to social media accounts
[dropdown list containing list of services to which we offer connections; when a service is selected, users could enter account info in a text box]
  • Add another account (this would dynamically add another drop-town menu that users could use to add another account)

Assigning to Boone for initial response and then we should assign to Sam
