[web app] Google+ resources roundup: profile page URL shorteners

Every Wednesday I write about web apps and browser add-ons or observations related to social networks.  SUBSCRIBE RSS feed or email updates to follow these stories!

The default Google+ profile page’s URL is too clumsy, by no means you can easily remember it and tell your friends.  That’s why many many people have worked out a large number of Google Plus URL shorteners to fill this gap.  This is a summary of those I found and tried:

Google Plus Nick - Google+ Profile Page URL Shortener

gplus.to = gplus.to/[your chosen username]

plus.ly = plus.ly/[your chosen username]

PlusYa URL shortener with analytics

plusya.com = plusya.com/[your chosen username]

topl.us = topl.us/[your chosen username]

goplus.us = goplus.us/[your chosen username]

Google Plus Nick URL Shortener

gplusnick.com = gplusnick.com/[your chosen username]

gplus.name = gplus.name/[your chosen username]

MyPlus name URL shortener

myplus.name = myplus.name/[your chosen username]

 

So which one should I use?  Well, most of them are quite similar so I think you can simply choose whichever that has a pretty shortened URL.  Some URL shorteners provide additional features, like Plusya.com which is also a social statistics tracker.  Besides, you can also use traditional URL shorteners like bit.ly and goo.gl to create a shortened link to your Google+ profile page.

I’m sure that there are a lot more out there that I have never heard of.  If you know anything not listed above, send it in please!  I want to keep this resources list updated for Google+ users’ reference.
