I'm currently working on my CV and I'm using the moderncv template. When I try to use \social[github]{pedrocaseiro} I get the following errors:

! Undefined control sequence. \social
! LaTeX Error: Missing \begin{document}. See the LaTeX manual or LaTeX 
Companion for explanation. Type H <return> for immediate help.... \social[

  • Welcome to TeX.SX! Please help us help you and add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. Reproducing the problem and finding out what the issue is will be much easier when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}. – egreg Oct 15 '15 at 23:00
  • Are you using an updated moderncv package? – Gonzalo Medina Oct 15 '15 at 23:01
  • actually i think that might be it :/ – Pedro Caseiro Oct 15 '15 at 23:05
  • Seems so, if \social is not recognised. You should consider updating your moderncv bundle. Additionally, there's another issu that I comment in my answer. – Gonzalo Medina Oct 15 '15 at 23:16

If \social is undefined, you might be using an outdated version of moderncv. Please consider updating it. Besides this, there's another problem with \homepage; \homepage takes just one mandatory argument and you are using two. Change

\homepage{website}{website} 

to

\homepage{website} 

A complete example:

\documentclass[11pt,a4paper,sans]{moderncv}
\moderncvstyle{casual}
\moderncvcolor{blue}
\usepackage[scale=0.75]{geometry} 

\firstname{Jon} % Your first name
\familyname{Snow} % Your last name
\title{Software Engineer}
\address{123, 123}{}
\mobile{(+123) 123123123}
\email{jonsnow@thenorthemail.com}
\homepage{website}{website} 
\social[github]{123123}
\photo[70pt][0.4pt]{picture} % The first bracket is the picture height

\begin{document}

\makecvtitle

\section{Working experience}

\end{document}
