If you have a long URL to copy and paste to a forum, email, notepad, Office or any clipboard
and you want to copy it to any of the above than use Google Url Shortener.
Just enter the long URL into:
http://goo.gl/

There is also an extension for your Chrome browser which makes this very easy:
Get the extension here

Just as an example:

URL Shorteners certainly have a purpose, but they give me the chills as you haven't a clue what they point to and are often used to obscure. Unless of course you have another add-on to expand them, such as LongURL Mobile Expander, don't you just love the name (fortunately it works quite well).
