    When you want to share a link to an interesting article via Twitter sometimes the link is far too long!
  • http://www.facebook.com/cloudva
    http://bit.ly is a very useful tool that can save you characters and you can track how many people are clicking on it
    Sign up is simple – just enter a username, email address & password
  • http://www.facebook.com/cloudva
    This is what it looks like once you’ve signed up and signed in
  • http://www.facebook.com/cloudva
    Copy the url of the page you want to share with people
  • http://www.facebook.com/cloudva
    Paste it into the ‘shorten your link’ box in bit.ly

  • http://www.facebook.com/cloudva
    This will automatically shorten your link
  • http://www.facebook.com/cloudva
    Click ‘Copy’
  • http://www.facebook.com/cloudva
    Paste the link into your Twitter post
    The shortened link gives you more room to say something about the article and still have characters left over for re-tweeting!
  • http://www.facebook.com/cloudva
    You can also track how many people click on your link.
    Scroll down the bit.ly page and you’ll see a list of your shortened links with numbers next to them
    The ‘5’ means five people have clicked on the link you posted and the ‘5,400’ is the number of people in total who have clicked on other links to that page from various places around the internet
  • http://www.facebook.com/cloudva
    Clicking on each of these figures in turn brings up a page that shows you which sites these links were clicked from and which countries those people were in
  • Great for shortening your links and finding out which links people find most interestingHope you found that helpful See you soonKaren
