youtu.be and goo.gl – Youtube and Google URL Shortener


Valid until 31 January 2015 (unless noted)
Several weeks ago, Google announced goo.gl – the URL Shortener service, and now youtube has done the same thing, which named youtu.be. As its name, the URL shortener objective is to make a link shorter, in other word, has fewer characters. So, with shorter URL we can share, tweet and email the link easier. For now Google URL Shortener is currently available only for Google products.

youtu.be and goo.gl – Youtube and Google URL ShortenerYoutu.be is the url shortener access youtube videos. Unfortunately, to embed video, the url is still too long. Unlike the bit.ly url shortener which uses only 20 characters. The Youtube shortener URL uses 27 characters. You can use the url and share it with other people on facebook, twitter or Google Reader.

For example, to create short url for http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C8wMtRiwNHQ, you can make it short by change it to http://youtu.be/C8wMtRiwNHQ.

Use autoshare with Youtube, and all your video URLs are shortened and tweeted.
