Quick Tip: Customizing your Profile Links

If you’re like most folks, there are other people on your favorite networking sites with the same name. That may mean some difficulty in getting a link address for your profile that doesn’t include a bunch of numbers or strange characters. Instead of wading through a complicated “get your own name” app or messing around with initials, follow this simple tip for a personalized link to pass around:

Go to a URL shortening service like TinyURL, paste in the gibberish link to your profile and set a custom alias with your name. Voila!

If you use this tip, feel free to share your new profile link in the comments.
