Users have been demanding custom or vanity URLs ever since the social network took shape and now Google+ has begun rolling these out. High time it was done, because till now Google+ profile URLs have been near impossible to remember, a fact Google+ acknowledges, “We’re introducing custom URLs to make it even easier for people to find your profile on Google+. A custom URL is a short, easy to remember web address that links directly to your profile or page on Google+.”

Let us see how long does Google take to issue custom URLs for all, and there will be the inevitable mad rush to claim them.
