A shortened link might not be the first choice when publishing content, but it can have several advantages.

 

If a wedding publication is trying to collect submissions on a Google Form, for example, directing followers to the link 

may not give readers any advantage in finding or filling out the form. Using a URL shortener like Bitly will make this easier by generating an easy-to-remember URL that matches the original address. can be rather long and unwieldy, when the shortened version http://goo.gl/forms is much more manageable. In addition to being easier to remember, it also takes less time to type in a URL when creating content or sharing links on social media platforms such as Twitter.

Another example from an educational perspective might be how links between college courses are created and shared: instead of using something like https://sites.google.com/a/shu... , it might be better practice to use a Google Drive link containing the same information: https://drive.google.com/open?... . By shortening the link, users will not only have one

more way to share their materials, but they will also have an easier time remembering how to get back to the source.
