What are the link requirements for adding/editing labels?

Label Pages are equipped with social media (Instagram, Twitter, etc.) and music links (Soundcloud, Beatport, etc.) that lead to the label's official channels. Linking the correct channels is very important. They provide the content displayed on the Label Pages and allow us to calculate and monitor a label performance across various channels. Make sure you add as many channels as possible.

Find the general rules for adding/editing links, link requirements and examples for each channel below. See how links should look here.

GENERAL RULES:
All channels should belong to the label (not a personal profile/fan page/owner’s/auto-generated profile).
▪ The last post on each social media channel should not be older than 3 years (content age restriction does not apply to music channels).
▪ Insert the most basic/shortest URL form possible. See the example below:
    ✔  https://www.facebook.com/sixteenofive/
   ❌ https://www.facebook.com/sixteenofive/about/?ref=page_internal
▪ While editing, do not remove the existing links on pages if they are correct (belong to the label, display content), even if the content is outdated (more than 3 years old).

Below are the basic guidelines for each platform:

Label website 
An official domain, Wordpress, Wix or Blogspot page.
Example: https://defected.com

YouTube
The label’s own YouTube channel. Don't add playlists or videos.
Example: https://www.youtube.com/user/DefectedMusic

SoundCloud
The official channel. The label’s reposted tracks count as content. Don’t link auto-generated and/or artist profiles or individual tracks. 
Example: https://soundcloud.com/defectedrecords

Beatport
The label’s profile, not a track/artist.
Example: https://www.beatport.com/label/defected/1354

Instagram
Link the label’s own profile. The last post should be max. 3 years old. If the channel is set to private, you can add it if there is at least one post.
Example: https://www.instagram.com/defectedrecords

TikTok
Link the label’s own profile. The last post should be max. 3 years old. 
Example: https://www.tiktok.com/@defectedrecords

Twitter
Link the label’s own profile. The last post should be max. 3 years old. If the channel is set to private, you can add it if there is at least one post.
Example: https://twitter.com/DefectedRecords

Facebook
The label’s page, not a personal profile/fan page/auto-generated page. The last post should be max. 3 years old.
Example: https://www.facebook.com/DefectedRecords
