Have a own URL for your Google+ Profile


A Customized URL for any Social Network profile page is preferable as it is easy to remember and get directly to the Profile page instead of search for that profile just like Facebook.com/VenkkateshCA. When it comes the Google+ social network, it will give you a random URL for your profile like Google.Com/108634912960758051829 rather than with a specific URL Google.com/+Venkkatesh-CA.
