Google+ has only been available for a week and there’s no Google+ API as of yet, so developers have been making do without, and this is the latest example.
There’s not a lot to choose between the two shorteners other than your personal preference so take your pick or use both if you’re feeling smug and want to tease your plus-less friends or something.
One thing Google have omitted from the beta version of Google+ is ‘vanity urls’ – a personalisable short-link for your Google+ profile. Currently user profiles are accessed at plus.google.com/<21 digit integer>.
Yesterday night Boris Veldhuijzen van Zanten posted on Google+ announcing Social Statistics, which keeps track of the top 100 users of Google+. It’s the first thing we have seen that could be described of a Google plus ‘app’. Boris had stated that he was updating the site manually, however you would think it shouldn’t taken too long to knock together a scraper.
