VYU.me - URL Shortener


VYU.me is another website in a long line of URL shorteners.  For each URL that you shorten you can provide a "note" with up to 500 characters and a custom ID.  When you create your short URL it does not automatically take you to the website.  What it does is take you to the "homepage" for your shortened link within VYU.me.  At this point, you are able to easily click on the link to the website or comment on the link as well.  You are also able to see statistics and the title of the website you shortened as well.  In a way, this service provides more of a social aspect for link shortening.  There is also a bookmarklet available as well.  You can create an account as well so that you can track the URL's that you are shortening.
