Monday, January 4, 2010 - Google's URL Shortner

Google has launched a new URL shortener service, with which you can shorten long URL's for easy sharing, in blogs, tweets, emails, chats and so on. For using you must be using one of the Google services, like Google wave or Feedburner. There is no front end for using directly like we have in and like so services.
For example if you are using Feedburner-->Publicize-->Socialize service, there is option to add a twitter account to your feeds. The URL's in your feeds will be indirectly shortened by while posting to Twitter account.
I have added this blog to my Feedburner account and socialized it via twitter. this is my twitter account, you could see some URL's with '' in it. Those URL's are automatically shortened by and then posted to twitter from Google Feedburner.
There an option for using using extensions in Google chrome browser. There in no official release as on 04 Jan 2010. Use this link to get a set of Google Chrome extensions that used I am using shortener + share on twitter and is happy with it. Try and explore on all extensions and find yours.

Have nice time.
