I am using babel in moderncv in order to switch between greek and english language with default language greek but i had an issue with social infos (such as email,webpage)i could not add them in english..

For example i was adding in the code :

\homepage{www.example.gr}

and i was getting in pdf :

enter image description here

so a user suggested me to add these lines in code (and that fixed the issue)

\xapptocmd\emailsymbol{\selectlanguage{english}}{}{}
\xapptocmd\homepagesymbol{\selectlanguage{english}}{}{}

but now i have the same issue with linked symbol, I add this code :

\social[linkedin]{gr.linkedin.com/in/test}

and i get this :

enter image description here

I am posting here the first lines of my code :

Just add the following line to your code (best after the \xapptocmd lines you already have):

\xapptocmd\linkedinsocialsymbol{\selectlanguage{english}}{}{}

Then your linkedin address will be in english.

Just for the case you add other things, that are the other defined symbols that can occur (copied from moderncv.cls):

\newcommand*{\addresssymbol}       {}
\newcommand*{\mobilephonesymbol}   {}
\newcommand*{\fixedphonesymbol}    {}
\newcommand*{\faxphonesymbol}      {}
\newcommand*{\emailsymbol}         {}
\newcommand*{\homepagesymbol}      {}
\newcommand*{\linkedinsocialsymbol}{}
\newcommand*{\twittersocialsymbol} {}
\newcommand*{\githubsocialsymbol}  {}

After the command \newcommand* you find the several names.

MWE:
