Short-links 🔗

Why is it good to use short-links? Short-links allow reducing the number of used characters. For example, this link, which is 164 characters long:

https://postfity.com/blog/promote-virtual-assistant-services-social-medim/?utm_medium=social&utm_source=facebook.page&utm_campaign=postfity&utm_content=postfity13235

will be shortened to this one https://pos.li/2igiou, which is 21 characters long. It cuts the link down by 143 characters, which you can now use to write the message in your post. 

How to enable short-links? 

There are two ways of doing that. To enable the shortlinks, go to the “settings” page in the menu bar. Then choose the “general” tab. 

Or you can copy and paste the link below:

https://panel.postfity.com/settings#/_#&tab=general

Scroll down until you reach the shortlinks settings and click on the box. Click on the “save settings” box to make it active. 

The other way is to change settings while creating a post. You can find an icon of the settings next to the “create post” box. Click on it to change them. 

To enable shortlinks, check the box next to the “shortlinks enabled” text. 

Once you make it active, the links will be shortened automatically. The pasted link will be changed into the shortened one using the pos.li domain, as you can see below. 

You can also shorten or unshorten a link by using the “ctrl” button on your keyboard and clicking on the link. 

Before shortening, UTMs are added (if they are enabled). You can read more about UTMs [here]
