URL Shorteners And Bit.ly Integration
A URL shortener is an online application that condenses a lengthy URL into a short one, making it easier to share links. URL shorteners also provide information that can be invaluable to your business—the number of clicks, insight on the people who click them, where these clicks are coming from, and more.
Zoho Social has a default URL shortening service, zurl, that's free for all members.
Zoho Social members on paid plans can also access our Bit.ly integration. If you have a Bit.ly account, you can connect it to Zoho Social.
