Facebook Campus – A College Student-only Social Network
Key Features Of Facebook Campus
The social media giant wrote;
“Today, we are launching Facebook Campus, a college-only space designed to help students connect with fellow classmates over shared interests. Facebook Campus makes it easy to find and start conversations within your college community.”
How to Access Facebook Campus
Below are some of the angles touched:
In order to access Campus, Students have to provide their .edu email address as well as their graduation year, and once they’re in, they’ll create a new profile specifically for the section, although their usual profile and cover photos will follow them to Campus. They’ll also have the option to add or remove their major, classes, hometown, dorm, and minor.
“We wanted to create a product where it was easy for classmates to meet each other, foster new relationships and also easily start conversations,” explains Facebook Campus Product Manager Charmaine Hung. “And we really think that Campus is more relevant than ever right now. With COVID-19, we see that many students aren’t returning to campus in the fall. Now, classes are being held online and students are trying to react to this new normal of what it’s like to connect to clubs and organizations that you care about, when you’re not together,” she added.
Key Features Of Facebook Campus
1. Campus-only News Feed
Campus-only News Feed is a college email-verified space designed for students to get updates from classmates, groups, and events in a college-specific feed. Students can create study groups, plan virtual concerts, or ask for advice with college-only Groups and Events.
2. Campus directory
College is about finding your people, so there is a classmate directory to make it easy to find and meet new people. Like in the early days when Facebook was a college-only network, students can find classmates by class, major, year, and more.
3. New ways to chat
Campus Chats are real-time chat rooms. Students can create chat rooms for their dorm, clubs, or any other groups they’re part of within Campus.
