Google’s URL shortener goo.gl for sharing short links

Tonight we are happy to announce support for Google’s goo.gl, which is a fast URL shortener like bit.ly and awe.sm brought to you officially by the folks at Google.

To start using goo.gl short URLs for your AddToAny button or standalone services, please see the AddToAny documentation on URL shorteners & “click-back” tracking. If you’re coding manually, just remember to drop the ‘e’ – the value should be ‘googl’ instead of ‘google’. Even we screwed that up once, twice, maybe a few times during testing. 😉

This new feature comes in thanks to a Twitter message from Neasan. Thanks for the request, Neasan!
