How to create a Google+ vanity URL

Unlike other social networking services, Google+ doesn't let you create your own personal URL. Follow this guide to create your own short URL for sharing with friends.

Google+ is fresh, and you might already be wondering how to point friends and family to your profile. But unlike Facebook and Twitter, Google doesn't offer vanity URLs, leaving you with a lengthy and hard-to-memorize profile link, like https://plus.google.com/111601729473858041964/.

Get on board with Gplus.to instead--it's a service that shortens your Google+ profile into a simple, memorable link. In this How To, CNET's Brian Tong shows you how.
