Getting a user-friendly Web address on Google Plus


I’ve had several friends tell me about how wonderful it was to get a Google Plus (G+) Web address via the Web site. With it, I could, for example, have http:/gplus/to/sjvn instead of (Try saying that three times fast!). That sound good, but I have several problems with it, and besides, you probably already have a human-friendly G+ Web address.

First, the good news: Your Google Profile,, already has your Gmail name on it, and if you use that as your Web address, you’ll find it takes visitors straight to your G+ stream page. So, for example,, will bring you right to my G+ page. No fuss, no muss, and no need to do anything.
