I’ve been using Google+ much more than Facebook for over a year now. Now that Google is starting to let Google+ users have custom URLs, how can I get one?

Basically, you just have to wait until Google contacts you with an offer to set up a custom URL. In order to receive that offer, you need to (1) have an account more than 30 days old, (2) have a profile photo, and (3) have 10+ followers. If you meet those three criteria, just sit back and wait. I’m not sure how quickly Google is rolling this out, so you may have to wait a little while.
