Social Whale Makes Shortening URLs Easier

Use Social Whale to Quickly Shorten URLs

The uber helpful Tinyurl is great for sending shortened links to friends and posting on Twitter, but it sure does take a lot of steps to complete the task.

Sounds like a lot of steps, right?

With the new Firefox extension called Social Whale, the process of shortening a URL has been reduced to two steps. Yes, two. Social Whale is free to download to Firefox, and adds a small whale icon to the bottom right of your browser for safe keeping. Once you're on a page you want to link to, all you have to do is click on the whale icon, and Social Whale automatically shortens the link and copies it to your clipboard. Then, the only thing you have to do is paste the link into your email, IM, or Twitter page. You're then free to continue your web browsing, knowing you just saved yourself like a whole 10 to 20 seconds of time. Personally, I need all the time I can get.

Social Whale also works hand-in-hand with Twitpic to upload photos to Twitter as well. Just by right clicking on the whale icon, you'll get an option to upload a photo. Simple, and so so easy.
