Google‘s social networking platform Google+ starts offering custom URL’s for the users. Its start to rolling out almost everyone.

Why we need Custom URL?
A custom URL is a short, easy-to-remember web address that links directly to your profile or page.

For Example: 
Techno2know's Google+ page can direct people to google.com/+Techno2know to visit their page rather than http://plus.google.com/101601892014630704582.
Before you can get a custom URL, your account needs to be in good standing and meet the following requirements:
Requirements for getting a custom URL
·         10 or more followers
·         Your account is 30 days old or more
·         A profile photo
