Sometimes you may need to provide a web address (or url) to your friend or someone else. If you give it using email then it is easy. Just copy and paste the whole url.
But if you need to send it by Mobile SMS or if you need to write in on a paper then you may need to type it manually or write on a paper. In case of small url it is not very difficult job.
But if the url is too long then it will really a tough job for you. And most importantly there is a chance of mistake. Because often a web address consists of many meaningless letter or symbol. And if you miss a single letter your link will be unusable!
But there is a system to make your long url short. Tiny URL will let you shorten a long url.
For example, type http://munnamark.blogspot.com in the box and click on tiny. Then the short link will be like that http://tiny.cc/7n96bw. And this small link will work perfectly like the original url.
You can also make a custom url. First copy and paste your url in the url box. Then type a custom name that you want after the tiny url. Then click on tiny.
You can also use Google Url Shortener for the same purpose.
