As you may have noticed, Social Student has been down for maintenance intermittently over the last few days. This may have been frustrating, but the team has been hard at work to create a brand new experience for all our readers.
Responsive design – The site will look awesome on every device, from your laptop to an iPhone. We now also have a Social Student Android app.
Speedy Gonzales – We wanted the site to load as quickly over 3G on your smartphone as it does on your tablet or PC. Think of it as a faster and leaner version of Social Student, one that has been going to the gym 4 times a week for the last 6 months.
Review System – Our film reviews will give you more information and a more comprehensive rating thanks to the new review system
Product Reviews – We are working hard to bring a brand new product review section. Expect reviews of everything from the latest smartphone to TV’s.
Comments – The new comments system allows you to talk to other readers as well as give your opinion on the content of the site quickly and hassle free using your Social Media Login. We want our readers to start engaging with each other and us more, so comment and see what other people have to say.
Discount Section – The discount section will be getting an overhaul in the next few months, but unfortunately we couldn’t get that done in time for the revamp launch. Our plan over the next 12 months is to get localised discounts in each city. We are starting with Sheffield, Birmingham and Leicester then expanding quickly after that. Does your local takeaway do a killer student deal? Let us know so we can start creating a list for your city.
Some Cleaning up – Social Student has grown so much over the last 18 months there was a lack of continuity between some of our original content and the latest stuff. We’ve tidied this up, made sure everything looks good and still works within the current vision of Social Student.
So, why should I care?
The site is now faster, leaner and much better looking. Oh, and we are giving away £60’s worth of Weatherspoons vouchers to celebrate!
Seriously though, the new site allows us to build on what we were already doing, by giving you more content, competitions, discounts and very soon product reviews.
Let us know what you think in the comments, or drop us an e-mail and thank you for helping us get to this point, to the next 18 months!
