URL Shortner Bit.ly has refreshed its look and has added a few new features. It’s actually a pretty sweet deal, looks nicer and run much quicker. The foundation is still the same allowing you to shorten, share manage and track your URL’s.
So what’s new with Bit.ly:
There is an advanced tools section that will allow you to grab a bookmarklet that will sit on your toolbar.
This bookmarklet will allow you to:
- Send tweets directly from any website that you are on. You can send these tweets from a number of services without having to open that particular application, including Tweetdeck.
- View link stats and see where your visitors and clicks are coming from
- You can get social with the responders, RT’s etc.
- Send out Bit.ly’s from elsewhere and track them from your bit.ly dashboard
To set up your bookmarklet just follow these 3 quick steps:
Step 1: Click the tools bar on the right side of the menu bar and click the 1st option “bit.ly bookmarklet”
Step 2: Scroll to the bottom of the page and drag the bookmarklet to your toolbar and that’s it
