Google Plus is the awesome new social network built by Google to directly compete with Facebook. Google+ has so many great features like Hangouts, Circles, Google+ Pages, Games, etc. It is a great place to relax with friends and acquintances.
But one very good feature that Google+ lacks is the ability to create a short custom vanity url for your Google+ Profile, which other social networks like Facebook, Twitter and Linkedin has. Google instead uses a very long list of random numbers, example 103029867612431919230. This has pissed so many off due to the awfully long url the now have to remember. If you one of those that are looking for a way to create a short vanity url for Google+, there is now way to do it using GPlus.to
