Google+ started rolling out custom URLs today.

Well…do not get too excited. Only specific people and pages can customize their Google+ URLs.

“We’re not quite ready for everyone to start claiming their own custom URLs, we plan to expand the availability over time, so stay tuned,” explained Google in a Google+ post.

Saurabh Sharma first detailed the news on Google+, where the Googler defined a custom URL as a “short, easy to remember web address that links directly to your profile or page on Google+.”

As Sharma also noted, +Britney Spears+Ubisoft+Delta, and +Toyota are just a few of the profiles that have already modified their Google+ URLs.

At least us normal folk are a step closer, right? [via TechCrunch]
