Last week, Google announced the introduction of custom URLs on its Google+ social network.
The much called-for feature will allow users to replace the current URLs, which consist of a string of numbers, with a custom address. For example, car manufacturer Toyota now has the URL http://plus.google.com/+toyota.
So-called ‘vanity’ URLs are currently only available to a small number of “verified” profiles and pages. But Google has indicated that the feature will gradually be rolled out to users across the service.
In the meantime, there is a range of third-party services through which you can built your own Google+ URL. Of these, GPlus.to is perhaps the most popular. Try it here.
