technology terms

Try to avoid obscure technology references and long email addresses and URLs. (You can use bitly.com to shrink long web addresses. Or you can direct readers to the right page: Visit www.vcu.edu, click on “Alumni,” and then “Golf Tournament.”) For websites, do not include the tag http://. Instead: www.vcu.edu; facebook.com. If you are printing a document with a URL or email address in it, be sure to remove the hyperlink. See capitalization.
