Sorry I forgot to highlight them, as you see on the right, the Twitter, Facbeook, YouTube icon

Like instead of the profile info showing these as text, make them as icons instead to save space and it looks neater

Are you using Custom Profile Fields now? Those are text. It would be nice if there was a URL-with-image field, but there isn't.

If you want icons, you'll probably need a code change. For example, searching the Modifications database for Twitter found the Twit Profile Link, which sounds like it adds the user's Twitter feed to the profile, so that may give you an idea of what is necessary.

Also search the Modifications database for Facebook and YouTube.
