I don't know about other users, but I'm not inclined to look at these shortened 'goo' links, especially when they're all stacked up like that.  Not only do I find it difficult to read, I'm not inclined to click on a link when I have no idea where it's taking me.

K.. But understand something if I was so inclined at posting a bad or not well known Link site.. At which i'm not I wouldn't posted it on here in the First place.. And if one's want to see something in a Certain Way all they have to do is ask me and if I can fix it.. If it's allowed.. I will.. 

O.. on Using Google's URL shortener I have seen this method used Quite a bit not only by me and a few others on here but on other Sites that i have Visited as Well,  I used the method as intended to shorten the Way of the over long Links that some sites include so I hope that answers some Question. of why your seeing them..

And to fix the issue on seeing the Links to Close together, I will correct this and put them were one's can see them and can click on them..  Forum Mods please acknowledge the reason I made this Adjustment..  Thanks b33

I still won't click on them because I don't know where they go.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

Have not half.

That explanation doesn't change my opinion of the shortened URL links.

I know why I'm seeing the shortened links.  But I don't care what site they're on or who posted them ... I don't click on shortened URLs.

I'll also mention that as far as I know, a power cycle will not automatically push updates to your phone unless you have your apps set to automatically update (which I don't; I prefer to know what's being updated, how, and why, along with any possible changes in permissions).

Personally, I also prefer to know where a link is taking me before clicking on it. This information is NORMALLY gleened by looking at the link in question, something which is not available in the shortened links.

What I normally do is to link some text in my posts to the full link such as the following which would lead someone to your 1st link. When hovering over the link, my browser then displays the full link which I can read prior to clicking on it.

Google Search update

It doesn't take much more effort at all as the link is normally added by copy and paste.Smiley Happy

Or the option that is available here to have the link renamed automatically

Unfortunately, I can not offer an example due to being on my iPad. That option I use anytime I add a link to a post on this site

B-1 that Very thing you mentioned I tried it more than once, with no success at all to getting it to work)  I even asked someone on here how to get it to work.. you know what I got instead I got a Null answer to what i asked..so i figure time to move on, but I always thought the sole purpose of this forum is help one another. when you don't understand how to get something to work properly..

So.!  I  figured hey I'll try out something new something different than coping the Long drawn out URL's that we sometime see, I thought using Google's method to shorten and Clean up my post would look good.. so again i preceded with this method

And now the replies to doing it are what see,  You know when you make cake and have no Ice Cream there's always some one crying for both..
