In the past, people had to save their hyperlinks on a Word document, Excel spreadsheet or with e-mail. But now with technology continuously evolving and advancing, organizing your links is easy – especially with Bitly.com.
Bitly.com allows its users to save, organize, share and bookmark things they want to keep track of online. It’s easy to join, and it’s free. Once you create a Bitly.com account, possibilities are endless.
The site has a search option in order to find links quickly, sorts links into themes that users can make private or public and lets users share their links across Facebook, Twitter and e-mail all through the webpage.
But, I am not done yet.
Bitly.com has an iPhone app that is also free and lets you takes your links wherever you go. It makes life simple, especially for journalists, web producers, social media junkies and students who have trouble keeping track of their stories, research and favorite sites.
For journalists who are Twitter savvy and like posting their latest news stories or blog posts, Bitly.com becomes essential. Sometimes links are too long and don’t fit in the 140-character space allotted to Twitter users, but Bitly.com shortens your links with the touch of one button.
That way, journalists can add a shortened hyperlink and a description so readers know what to expect when they click on the story.
Bitly.com will definitely simplify work, research … and life.
