In the early 2000s, I was at conference and learned about TinyUrl.com. I was reminded of it today. What is TinyUrl.com? How can it help you?
If you have a long and cumbersome URL that you need to shorten, TinyURL.com can do that for you. You enter your long URL into the TinyURL box, click on Make TinyURL and you then end up with a much shorter URL. Check it out here.
