How Social Media Could Benefit Businesses 

(Note: The thumbnail has been changed due to a misspelling on my behalf. I apologize in advance. it's benefits, not benifits.) 

In today’s world social media is a very popular platform. It is a way for us to share our personal life and reconnect with our friends from the past. Raking in over millions of users social media websites such as Facebook or Twitter allows us to interact, and share with one another from far distances; so long as we have a simple Internet connection. Seeing that these platforms have become a popular trend, it’s no surprise that businesses should take a look into what makes these platforms special.

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.

Much like spotify you can find the song you are looking for and share it with your friends or family on your favorite social media based website. The site is easy to use and has a very simple user interface to allow for a better experience while on the website. There isn’t a lot to say about the looks and functionality of the website itself, but let’s just jump in on how exactly you find your music on this awesome website.

Facebook Buys Oculus

One of the biggest purchases of this week which surprised both me and the tech community was Facebook’s recent buyout of the Oculus Company and device. The Company was bought out for $400 million dollars in cash, $1.6 Billion in Facebook stock, and an additional $300 million will be given if the product meets certain performance quote. Although this may seem like a lot of money (which for any other person it is) I don’t believe the Facebook stock would be worth it. Facebook is a Social Media based website much like Myspace, it’s a fad that might die out in the future. If you look at a quote for the Facebook stock you’ll notice the odd traveling pattern for its odd stock pattern. But if I were to think about it in the long run, Facebook is a Company willing to make investments to make something better, so they could be the next Apple.

Chrome Apps Jolidrive Thoughts (Video Included) 

The application we are going to look at today is called “Jolidrive”. I won’t lie when trying to make a script for this application I couldn’t think of a single thing positive to say. So in this video I decided to do a live approach of this application to show you what I meant about how it was hard to talk about. But don’t be discouraged; this article still has a mouthful to say about the video and the application itself, so keep on reading if you’re interested in what this application is all about.
