3. Click the “COPY” button next to the shortened link to copy it to your clipboard
Just can’t seem to get used to the new format? Here are a few simpler options to shorten your links.
Goo.gl: Yes, even Google has a URL shortener. If you are signed into a Google account, it’ s quick, simple and easy. If you are not signed in, you can still use the site, but it requires you enter a captcha as well.
