I thought I would do a little ‘refresher’ for those who are just getting into regular online ‘mischief’ and who haven’t heard about simple ways of managing loooooong URLs.
The problem: Long Web addresses (URLs) are difficult to remember and say, and become broken when sent by email.
The solution: Use an online tool that shortens the long address to overcome these problems.
How does DigBig work?
Three simple steps:
- You paste a Web address into the DigBig box and click the button
- DigBig converts it into a much shorter version
- You copy the new short address and use it instead of the long one
TinyURL does the same job, and also allows you to add TinyURL to your IE browser toolbar – if you want.
