I believe my question title is somewhat similar to this (Should I link my research in my SOP?). However I would wish to elaborate my situation. I would be applying to the Computer Science Programs in a few Graduate Schools. I come from a Computer Science background. Can I provide hyperlinks in my SOP to online accounts on portals like github(which is an online project hosting site),TopCoder(a Sports Programming portal),etc. I believe mentioning the above would definitely be an add on to my application.

    You can include them, just make sure the really important information is included in the statement of purpose. You can't assume that everyone will follow the hyperlinks! – aeismail Dec 31 '13 at 9:21
