From the Windows Live blog at Shorter, more useful links with SDRV.MS by Omar Shahine, Group Program Manager, SkyDrive.com

Sharing with links just got a bit friendlier:


  • We’ve shortened our regular URLs by 40%. Our previous URLs didn’t even fit inside a Tweet! Oh the shame!
  • You can shorten them even further thanks to our new partnership with bitly and the new domain for shortened SkyDrive URLs: http://sdrv.ms
  • We’ve added OpenGraph support to our URLs so that when you paste them into places like Facebook, a nice thumbnail preview gets generated


Shorter links


As you can see in the Share dialog, there is a Shorten button



Shortening using our own custom domain


Clicking the button will result in a very short URL using the SDRV.MS domain
