Yesterday, Bitly, the widely used URL shortening service, rolled out its new website to the public. The new design focused on implementing better social tools into the service in order to provide users with a better link sharing experience. Despite mixed reactions from users, the new Bitly is awesome and will change the way you discover content.
The new Bitly is awesome
The new design is clean and beautiful. It’s easy to read, easy to navigate, and perhaps most importantly is very responsive. The only issue I have with the design is the placement of the search box and the add new URL box. I think they should be swapped. I want be able to create links quickly on Bitly.com, searching is a secondary feature and should be placed in the upper right hand corner. Not the other way around.
