Showing combined social sessions on graph

I'm trying to add a counter and a graph to show social sessions. The problem is I'm unable to find the segment/metric for the same. There's no option to include Social traffic to the report.

 

Here's a screenshot: Metric picker is not showing social traffic in the list

 

I am quite new to data studio and hence not know much about formulas and segments. A walkthrough will be really appreciated. I have found a way to include sessions from each social referrer but then the graph becomes cluttered (too many referrers). I want to show all the session from social sites combined so that I can show them on a counter element as well.

Try creating this filter:

 

Include  Medium  RegExp Contains  Facebook|Twitter|Linkedin|Youtube|Etc...|Etc...

 

This should group all your social traffic into one chart.

Hi! 

 

Thanks for replying. I tried this method but it didn't work. The graph is not showing any data now. I'm attaching the screenshot of the same.

In my company's setup we have a dimension called "default channel grouping" that is where I pull all social traffic from. I'm not sure if that's out of the box or if it's a custom dimension that they set up.
