Google Maps makes short URLs a default option when sharing location
from Geospatial World
Thank you Google Maps! The days of sharing long URLs for any location are now gone. Previously if you were sharing any location on Google Maps, you had an additional option called "Shorten the URL." For so much time, it did not make sense for me why Google had to keep these both options of both long URLs and short URLs alive. But now, Google has taken away those long sharing URLs and has enabled "Short URLs" by default.
