Google+ URL for profiles

    I just got an email from Google telling me I'm eligible for a google+ shortened URL for my profile - google+/name takes users directly to your profile without a long string of numbers. Which would be nice b/c I can't seem to get my profile page to come up with the icon.

    anyway, just before I clicked confirm change, I was informed it was irreversible. So I'm pausing to ask if anyone knows of any reason why I would NOT want to do this? Some sort of techy reason I'm not aware of?

    Thanks

      Did you bring up 'Edit your Profile', 'Links' and copy the URL into the Google+ line? Then saving your profile, and clicking on 'G+' should bring up the new site (I usually test it in a new tab).

    Actually setting it up isn't my question/problem.

    It's really --

    is there any reason why I should NOT take the offered Google+ short URL?

      Actually I cannot see why not since I have Google+, but maybe not the same URL which you are talking about. Therefore I cannot say that you should definitely not take the offer since I went to Google+ to sign up on my own.
