Using TinyURL

Actually you don't have to know exactly what an URL is to effectively use TinyURl. How a copy/paste web address (URL) behaves after copying it and pasting it is inconsistent. The longer the URL, that is the more characters it contains, the less apt it is to paste as a "live link." Sometimes characters get interpreted as some type of 'break' and only part of the string becomes 'hot. When a URL fails to become 'hot', the likelihood that the reader will visit the location decreases exponentially. TinyURL facilitates converting the long address into a short address thereby increasing the odds of a 'hot-link' being created. As an example, the literal URL of this post http://www.blogger.com/blogger.g?blogID=17894696#editor/target=post;postID=6447379926666209477 becomes http://tinyurl.com/c3r9lju
