Google+ Custom URL's Now Available

This week has seen a host of Google+ updates to the service and its mobile apps. However the biggest is the launch of Custom URL’s to everybody. The URL’s were made available to high profile brands and personalities last year but Google is now rolling them out to users. In order to get a Custom URL though you have to hit certain criteria:

Eligibility for People:

  • 10 or more followers
  • Your account is 30 days old or more
  • A profile photo

Eligibility for Local Google+ pages: Must be a verified local business
Eligibility for Non-local Google+ pages: Must be linked to a website

It initially looks like the Custom URL Google assigns is based on the address of the website you have on your page. That is causing a bit of a problem who’s domain isn’t the same as the company name, at the moment the FAQ’s are saying that once assigned the URL cannot be altered, so if your URL isn’t similar to your brand or company name it may be worth holding off our using a service such as http://gplus.to/.

The Major Change

Perhaps the biggest game changing feature is that Google are in the process of rolling out is that when in a browser if you enter “ +brandname” (e.g. +youtube ) into your address bar and hit enter you will be sent directly to a brands Google+ Page. This should also work with personal pages so eventually +StephenDyson will take you to my G+ Page. Currently this feature seems to be only live for Google companies but expect a full roll out soon.

How common it will be for people to input +Youtube etc to search for a page is yet to be seen but it is a very nice addition, and another reason why getting the correct Custom URL is important.

Let us know what you think of the latest additions in the comments.

New Twitter Custom Timelines

Today saw Twitter release the long anticipated Custom Timeline feature which takes on directly sites like Storify. You can read about the new feature over on the Twitter Blog.  

The new Timelines allow users to set it up and then curate the feed and add any tweet they like.  Currently the feeds are curatable in Tweetdeck however it will be rolling out to other Twitter apps soon.  Each timeline will also have its own public link so you can share it amongst other users to view.

I thought I'd experiment with the new feature tonight during the weekly #SMXchat. The chat involves people from around the world and has a weekly social media related discussion topic.

You can have a scan through the Twitter Custom Timeline for this weeks #SMXchat below.

Football Shirt Wedding Place Names

The second of my folded Football Shirts used as place names for weddings.  This time the shirts were created in the design of the Tottenham Hotspur 2012/13 Home Shirt

Each of the 83 Spurs themed place names contained personalised names on the front and inside contained miniature metal hangers so they can hang on glasses for when the wedding attendees arrive at the table. 

The shirts are a novel alternate to traditional wedding place name cards where someone has just written on them, the back  of the shirt contains the details of the wedding.

It was a real pleasure to work on this project and I wish Lee & Louise a life time of happiness together.
