How to use Bit.ly to shorten links shared with Friends+Me extension
It's really easy to enable link shortening for your new Friends+Me extension?
The first thing you'll need is a Friends+Me account. Sign up here https://friendsplus.me in case you do not have Friends+Me account yet. If you already have one all you have to do is to make sure you're signed in.
In the next step please make sure you've connected Google+ accounts (profile, pages) you'd like to publish shortened link posts to.
And the last step is to setup/check link shortening configuration for your connected Google+ accounts. Visit every your Google+ account detail and in Settings menu click at the Link Shortening option.
To setup link shortening is really easy. First click at the Use button that's right next to the bit.ly header.
Popped up dialog will ask you if you'd like to setup Bit.ly link shortener to all you currently connected accounts. Checking this option will save you a lot of time.
You'll be redirected to the Bit.ly authorization page after you confirm the dialog with Switch to Bit.ly Shortener button. There you'll have to grant Friends+Me access to your Bit.ly account by clicking at the Allow button.
That's it, easy isn't it :)
Now every link attached to a new post published through the Friends+Me extension will be shortened by Bit.ly link shortener. Congratulations!
