Hello Appfri.ca

ShortUrls are all the rage right now with bit.ly offering it’s Pro service, goog.gl from Google and t.co from Twitter. They’re also fairly easy to setup and configure. I used yourls.org which took all of five minutes to setup and install.

Today we’re launching our own vanity url, Appfri.ca. Vanity urls, short urls or branded urls are simply ways to shorten the length of a hyperlink to your content online. So instead of http://appfrica.net/blog/2010/08/15/hello-appfri-ca/ this post should be tweeted as http://appfri.ca/2. Significantly shorter, right?

Note: If this seems like an absurdly self-referential post, it’s because I wanted to test to make sure this is working properly and I needed a sample post. =)
