Google plus customized URLs
Google have finally allowed Google+ users to create their own customized URL (aka vanity URL) on their profile. Get one now! There are a few basic requirements as stated by Google:
- Must have a profile pic
- Have a minimum of 10 followers
- Be at least 1 month old
Check out my customized URL as an example: www.google.com/+PaulVesely/
This move was well overdue as Facebook have been giving their members customized URL’s (vanity URL’s) for years e.g www.facebook.com/veselypaul
For all those Facebook addicts, don’t forget I have always said that you will eventually migrate over to Google+ not because you want to, or even because it is a better platform (even though it probably will be in the future). You will migrate and find your new haven at Google+ because Google is making it integral to have and up-to-date Google+ active profile so as to be part of the Google world.
Google+ now have:
- 1.5 billion pics uploaded to Google+ weekly
- Over 300 million members
- 540 million people are active on the Google+ network per month
For those who want to see what all the radical new improvements and features of Google+ are, check out this video of Vic Gundotra who is the SVP at Google.
