Many URL seems confusing with different long URL links and not user-friendly links that do not even enhance SEO (Search Engine Optimization) of your brand keywords when searches are made online for it. So It helps to promote brand awareness.

First you must have created the Social Media Channels already and copy their links as auto-generated by the social media platforms on each account created.
