Google+ expands custom URLs to more people and pages

You no longer need to be a star athlete or a pop diva to get a vanity URL on Google+. If you have a profile photo, have 10 or more followers and an account that's at least 30 days old, simply visit your profile to get your vanity URL and get rid of the random string of numbers.

This option is available to pages as well and Google's rolling the feature out to more accounts throughout the week.
