Confession #8: I often post links to other Websites on my Practice Facebook Page, but sometimes the links are long. And I mean really long.
I noticed other Pages were shortening the links they shared on their Facebook Page, but I wasn’t sure how to do the same thing. So of course, I asked HCA’s web service team and they provided me with a simple solution. In just three steps, you can shorten any URL before sharing:
1) Go to: https://bitly.com/ (I saved the URL to my favorites, you should too!)
2) Copy and paste the URL you want to shorten into the data field
3) Hit “shorten”
And you’re done!
You can also create an account with bitly and track how many times the links you post are clicked on and shared with others! For more helpful tips, contact Josephine Beeler with HCA’s web service team.
