Lots of people ask me how to get a short URL specifically for their Google+ account. Here's how...
Requirements: A Google+ account
Open your Google+ profile page. Look at the URL for a long string of numbers, like this: https://plus.google.com/103493459351957813291/posts
Copy just the numbers.
Go to gplus.to. Enter a nickname. Paste in the numbers you copied. Click "Add".
Now you have your short URL!
