    First off, great plugin. I'd like to request an enhancement to add fields for Twitter, Facebook, Youtube, LinkedIn, etc.

    Is there any sort of a support here?

    Check out this plugin which adds social profile support for Guest Authors: https://github.com/Automattic/Co-Authors-Plus-Social-Pack

    Is there a way to adopt this add-on so that it'll work without having to use Jetpack?

    NOT resolved for people who aren't interested in using Jetpack.

    I found this solution for regular users:
    http://wp.tutsplus.com/tutorials/quick-tip-add-extra-contact-methods-to-user-profiles/

    Can this be adopted to work with Co-Authors Plus as well?

    or maybe it is and it just doesn't work on that one website...

    I don't use Jetpack, so the Social Pack is not a solution for me.

    nope. add that to function.php in your theme instead. the add_filter part is a hook. try it! it'll stay as lobg as your theme does. you could also build your own plugin to hold it, to make it theme independent.

    As I mentioned in this thread: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/guest-authors-and-author-boxes

    I don't have Jetpack installed and that add-on will work. The wording on the Github description is misleading at first... the only thing Jetpack is needed for is to allow the guest authors themselves to share out articles using their own social links rather than the social links for the site.

    Since that's not something we do anyway, we can use that add-on for the guest authors to have their info, and not need Jetpack.
