Aubie for shortening URLs

Please find the new short URL generator service we’ve created for the Auburn Family at  aub.ie

 

HOW IT WORKS

If you have a long URL or one that isn’t easy to remember, you can use aub.ie to create a shortcut to it.  For example, last week I linked a news article on Twitter about why the same passwords for multiple accounts is a dangerous practice.  Every character counts on Twitter, so I had aub.ie create a random shortcut: aub.ie/gxCBqI.   As a personal example, there is a recipe for Chocolate Kiwi Popsicles that I use a couple times a year but I never remember the URL.  Now I don’t waste time searching for the address; I just go to aub.ie/kiwipops
