This lawyer has 25K shares of his post where he mentions his post but did not have http:// on the front of the URL so it is not clickable. So much for getting leads from that viral success.
OOPS!

I have a habit of not typing the http. Thanks for this!

Doesn't facebook automatically link it if it ends in '.'? Is it because it is a .law and it usually does for a .com?

Not all of the nTLDs have the same clickable link status as .com does. But he could, of course, edit it if he saw it was not clickable and add the http:// and make it clickable. Only one where that would not be true is Twitter that does not allow you to edit your tweets. Youtube allows you to edit the descriptions, but not the video itself, of course, so you would have to re-upload, but there is no guarantee the new upload will get anywhere near the views as the original. My most-viewed video has currently 4.2M views, but it is also one of my worst videos. Not to worry though, I made 5000 from that video.

Missed clickable op for sure Joe....but it does work if you type it in as written.
Sure, but being a .law, I wonder how many dont type in justice4all.com or justice4alllaw.com or justiceforall etc. With these nTLDs, you really need to have your social media links be clickable, as people are not programmed to type things like that in.

They could even type in justice4all.law.com - a name that would not resolve. And that is dumb on the part of Law.com, not to have wild-card DNS for that domain name, as they could capture so many more hits from people interested in legal issues.
