Custom Landing Pages Increase Social Relationships

Have you ever gone to someone's bio on social networks and had no idea what they do, what matters to them, or where to find out more? That is a common mistake made even by people who believe they know social media. 

Taking the time to create a custom landing page for social media can pay off. Some go so far as the create separate landing pages for each social network.

Where you send your followers on social networks is part of your all-important personal branding. Social account bios are typically very short so you can't do much more than provide an image, a glimpse into what you do, and a link to where to find out more.

[Review] Speck CandyShell Grip for Nokia Lumia 1020

Speck are known in the industry for creating first class Cases for Mobile Phones and Laptops alike. Here we got the opportunity to test out the GRIP series on the Nokia Lumia 1020.

The case comes in a simple yet stylish package which can be easily opened by a tab on the back. Once you have the product out, just slip the phone into the case and that's literally it.

The phone's fitting was perfect in my eyes, it held the phone securely and even gave up a fight getting the phone out, this tells me that the case is built to last and could easily take a bit of abuse. The style of the case really appeals to me personally, with its grippy texture around the back, and large circular cut out for the 1020's camera housing.

I do have a couple of gripes with this case however,the buttons don't feel as tactile as I'd like them to be. The case's rubber insides seem to also sweat the device, causing heat issues with the phone. This can be acheived over a moderate use without using the camera.

You can purchse the Speck Candyshell Grip for £24.99 in White & Yellow. You can also find more Nokia Lumia 1020 Cases at Mobilefun.co.uk.
