If you are using Google+ you may find your Google+ url a bit long and clunky to use when sharing online and offline. I suppose because Google+ is still in its infancy, the new social network has not yet provided a url shortening option. Fortunately, there are numerous Google+ url shorteners that have popped up to help solve this issue. My favorite is Google Plus Nick that offers a custom username attached to Gplus.to. Google Plus Nick or gplus.to seems to have been around the longest and is widely used.
To shorten your Google+url, just go to Gplus.to, enter the username or nickname you want to use (3-25 characters), provide your Google+ id (just the numbers) and tada, that’s it, you have a shortened url that will be much easier to use.
Mine is gplus.to/shirleywilson.
Go to gplus.to to get yours today! Afterwards, come back and share your new Google+ shortened url in the comments below. If you know someone who could also benefit from this Google+ tip, be sure to share the knowledge using the social sharing buttons on the left.
