Social Media Icons within Member Profile

Is there a way to place social media buttons within the member profile section of the Scholar Theme? Please see screen shot. http://imm.io/media/13/13qX.png

    @pqrdesigns: I'm not aware of a plugin so my initial thoughts would be to adapt what Sarah says in this article:

    https://premium.wpmudev.org/blog/5-ways-to-incorporate-google-buzz-into-wordpress-and-buddypress/

    You can add this to the activity menu next to ‘Reply’ and ‘Favorite’ in this file: bp-themes/bp-default/activity/entry.php
    Locate this:

    <?php if ( is_user_logged_in() ) : ?>
    				<?php if ( !bp_get_activity_is_favorite() ) : ?>
    					<a href="">"><?php _e( 'Favorite', 'buddypress' ) ?></a>
    				<?php else : ?>
    					<a href="">"><?php _e( 'Remove Favorite', 'buddypress' ) ?></a>
    				<?php endif; ?>

    Then add the link directly after it:

    <a href='//www.google.com/reader/ui/link-bookmarklet.js");void(b.appendChild(z));}else{}'><br />
    Buzz This</a>
    			<?php endif;?>

    Just replace the google buzz button with any from the social network you want.

    Really depends what you mean by 'social media buttons' too.. do you mean post to them, do you mean show those users profiles?.....

    Also nothing to say you can't just add a profile field if it's just on members profile you want it. That is easy to do and involves no coding.

Thank NAME, for their help.
