    I had the same problem and applied a workaround.

    There seems to be confusion about the user profile. Should we fill in the full URL (required for the rel=author) or just the user ID (required for WP About Author)?

    The workaround I’ve applied is removing the full URL in the wp-about-author.php
    In my case I’ve only done this for LinkedIn and Google+

    Before:

    $socials['linkedin'] = array('title'=>'LinkedIn', 'link'=>'http://www.linkedin.com/in/%%username%%', 'icon'=> WPAUTHORURL_URL .'/images/linkedin.png');
    $socials['googleplus'] = array('title'=>'Google Plus', 'link'=>'https://plus.google.com/%%username%%', 'icon'=> WPAUTHORURL_URL .'/images/googleplus.png');

    After:

    $socials['linkedin'] = array('title'=>'LinkedIn', 'link'=>'%%username%%', 'icon'=> WPAUTHORURL_URL .'/images/linkedin.png');
    $socials['googleplus'] = array('title'=>'Google Plus', 'link'=>'%%username%%', 'icon'=> WPAUTHORURL_URL .'/images/googleplus.png');

    I tried using this fix for Google+ but it sends me to my website, followed by the web address I have in the user profile. (www.media-feed.com/https://plus.google.com….) Any thoughts?
