Here we go again with another innovative website that is piggy backing the success of G+. Don’t start, yes we are too. For those of you that are already users, you will know that your user ID is not a simple one to remember. It is a twenty one digit number that identifies who you are. Although this is great for security and preventing relentless spam emails, it can sometimes make locating a friend a bit of a chore. Not anymore, gplus.to has stepped in to help give you that custom URL we all so desire.

They offer a very simple yet almost necessary service. Navigate your browser to gplus.to and type in the user name or ‘nick’ you wish to go by then add your G+ ID number and hit create. To find your Google+ ID number simply click on your ‘profile’ circle at the top of your account. It will then list your ID number much like the image below.

As you can see mine is gplus.to/StormyBeach. Now You all can find me easily, we will see if thats a good thing or a bad thing. Since the site was released there have been over 211,463 user names created with over 3 million redirections to their Google+ pages.  I was surprised to find the ‘Stormy” was already taken. You might want to jump in there and get your preferred nickname before someone else does.
