Open social media links in their own app
The social media links open in the browser vs. directing to the app (if the user has said app installed on their device). Is there a way we can default to have it open in the IG app (and only redirect to the web version if they do not have it installed)? I see this as possibly being a confusing re-direct as app users may not be logged in ever from their phone's browser. Is it possible if we could use a link to redirect a user from the mobile app to the library's social media profile within the social media app (not their web browser, where they likely won't be logged in).

I agree, the social media links should open the app, if installed, and maybe something can be done within the Innovative Mobile app code but from what I can tell it might come down to how the social media app is configured on the end user's device. I don't have Facebook, Instagram, or X (Twitter) installed on my device(s) but YouTube does open in the YouTube app as expected. However, when the web page for those other social media site loads, there is a button to open in the app or to download the app.
