HTML Href specials

Hey Treehouse! After watching the basic web tutorials, I learned something really cool:

href="tel: (some number)" can be used on any device to access the phone!

href="mailto: (some email)" can be used on any device to access the mail and go directly to compose an email to (some email)!

Are there any more such special href links to link to services like maps, social media, etc?

You can link to sections on your page by using href = # You can jumps to div's on a long page. EX;

<div id="sectionA"></div>

<div id="sectionB"></div>

<div id="sectionC"></div>

You can use href="sectionB" and it will jump to that section of the page.

Basically any that has an ID, can be used. doesn't have to necessarily have to be div's.
