Google+ will soon allow users to create vanity URLs for their accounts, sociable.co reports.
The search giant has announced that soon users will be bale to create their own personal URL so that it make a little more sense to people than what a long string of numbers would.
Currently, the feature is only available to large businesses or popular celebrities which have built up a large following by posting social media content on the site. It is expected that the feature would be rolled out to everyone else within the coming months.
The format involves placing a plus symbol between the Google URL and the user’s name. For example, David Beckham, who has already made the change, now has the address google.com/+DavidBeckham.
Making the announcement, Google’s Saurabh Sharma told theinquirer.net: “Whether you’re a clothing brand showing off your latest fashions, an athlete talking about your game, or an actor recalling a favourite role, your Google+ profile helps you connect with the people who share your interests.
“Today, we’re introducing custom URLs to make it even easier for people to find your profile on Google+.”
Elsewhere, Google announced the introduction of a new ‘studio mode’ feature, tailored specifically to the musicians who use the social network. With many of them using the Hangouts feature to perform ‘gigs’, Google unveiled a new audio setting to optimise sound specifically for music.
