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?
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?
This is being addressed in another forum post.
