Getting Tech-y: MiniInTheBox is Now on Instagram!


I’m sure you are all familiar with LightInTheBox’s Instagram profile. If you’re not, you should be. We’ve got loads of customer reviews, fabulous outfits, and even some giveaways! Seriously, check it out.

But now we’ve just launched an awesome new account, for our sister site MiniInTheBox. Mini is comprised of all things tech-y, gadget-y, outdoors-y, and more. Really, it’s just a fun site with loads of things you didn’t know you needed, like this cigarette-lighter-iPhone-case, this octopus tissue dispenser, or this laser gun alarm clock. Of course, there are all sorts of other useful things, like cameras and accessories, cycling gear, and the most awesomely designed USB flash drives you’ve ever seen, ever.

But what’s our favorite thing on Mini is definitely the phone cases for iPhone and Samsung. We’re talking some seriously awesome designs here, from pop culture references to tribal designs and glow-in-the-dark.

Some of the sweetest cases around!

Don’t have one at all? Show us! Need a new one? We’ll be happy to help out– 10 of you will get a new case of your choice from Mini!

I’ll just leave you with a bit of inspiration:caset

Instagram.  Everyone knows it. Tons of people use it. But why? What’s the point? For some, it’s a place to show off their fabulous lifestyle. For others, it’s a place for the best food-porn available.  But what really gets us here at The Box is the insanely inspiring fashion we find there. You may have seen our post yesterday about 3 fabulous fashionistas on Instagram that you should be following (and if you didn’t, check it out now), so you know that there are some incredibly talented people out there.

LightInTheBox: Now Globally Local on Facebook

Great news! The LightInTheBox Facebook pages have now become globally connected. This new function means that fans are directed to the most geographically appropriate page. By going to one of our 16 language pages, you will receive higher quality information that is locally appropriate and more relevant to your needs (plus it gives you access to local sales and other promotions). LightInTheBox is really excited about this new initiative and we look forward to growing our local communities.

LightInTheBox: Now In Your Local Flavor


Big changes have been going on LightInTheBox’s Facebook pages. To date we have pages in 16 different languages with over 500,000 fans combined (and counting), but they were all separated into unconnected pages … until now.

Over the past few weeks we’ve been working with Facebook to switch all of our country pages into a single, interconnected platform via Facebook’s Global Pages.

What this means for you is that soon, all of our local LightInTheBox Facebook pages will be joined together under a single Facebook URL (at the time of writing, 12 of our 15 foreign language pages had been switched over), so instead of having a multiple pages for different countries/regions/languages, you will simply be directed to the appropriate language page (i.e. the Portuguese page for users in Brazil) based on your location when you log in.
