Social media platform Facebook has been working on a new feature Campus for quite some time now. The company has now officially launched. This feature has been specially introduced for college students, where they will be able to share events and other information on their campus. In addition, students will be able to interact with each other easily. A number of features have been added, keeping in mind the features of college students on Facebook Campus. Let me inform you that this feature has now been rolled out only in the US. But it is expected that it will soon be available in other countries as well.
Announcing Facebook Campus, the company said, "A college is a place that helps students connect with their classmates." But Facebook Campus easily finds the conversation within your college community. But this year, students across the country are facing some challenges as some campuses have shifted to partial or full-time remote learning, so finding a way to stay connected to college life is more important than ever. The company says that 'college is a good place to make new friends, to discover new opportunities to find and connect people with similar interests.' In the early days, Facebook used to be only a college network, but now we've come up with the Facebook Campus section to help students and college relationships improve and maintain.
Features of Facebook Campus:
If you are also missing your college, you can become part of the Facebook Campus. To use this feature, users will have to provide their .edu mail address and graduation year. The student will then have to create a new profile for the Campus section. Which will have a user's profile photo and images. The student will then have to share his class and home address etc.
Students will get other benefits too:
The Facebook Campus feature will take care of the student's privacy. Only campus-related news will be available. At the same time, you will find a campus directory that will help you share information about your friends' and classmates' events and seminars, etc. It will also provide chatting facility.
