If either of these two situations sounds familiar, then you are sure to be delighted to learn about Zly.me, a web application that lets you shorten a web address and share it on the major social networks.
To shorten a website address all you have to do is enter its URL in the relevant space then perform the action for obtaining the much shorter version. You can configure extra options such as protecting the address with a password, customizing the resulting URL or deciding whether or not to display the 'Sharing Bar'.
And what is the 'Sharing Bar', you may ask? It’s nothing other than a bar you find located in the upper part of the browser when you visit a website address shortened by Zly.me. This bar gives you speedy access to the main social networks (Facebook, Twitter, Delicious, Digg, etc.) so you can share the website you are viewing.
Another interesting feature of Zly.me is the ability to shorten website addresses on the page you are viewing via a 'bookmarklet' without having to open another tab in the navigator or interrupt your navigation of the page you are viewing.
