We have all known Facebook as our go-to social media platform. Over the years, it has evolved to provide us with new and exciting features. Once again, it hasn't disappointed with its new feature of creating a dedicated space for college students on its App.
Facebook has launched the Facebook Campus on its mobile application that helps students to interact with each other and indulge in college-related activities. Through the Facebook Campus feature, Facebook facilitates student interactions in a smooth-manner. College communities shall benefit from this feature as it makes the students closely-knit over common interests. The section shall allow the generation of exciting ideas, which the students can look forward to working on.
The section was introduced owing to the pandemic wherein campus-life, an essential part of a student's life, got replaced by virtual classes. Campus-life allows students to interact with a variety of students and helps them participate in various activities. It all got curtailed due to the raging pandemic. Facebook owes its roots to the benefits of campus-life as its idea sprouted from the discussions that the founders had during their college life. Therefore, it wants to take back students to one of the best days of life that they are missing.
How does Facebook Campus work?
Students have to create a separate campus profile, which will be different from their main Facebook profile. Facebook shall ensure no links whatsoever between their profiles and the profile in the Facebook Campus section.
For their college profile, students will need their college email and graduation year. In addition to this, there is optional information that a student can provide. These are details about Major & Minor, Classes, and Hometown. After uploading this information, Facebook Campus shall help students to connect with their classmates who share the same interests as theirs. Any kind of content shared on Facebook Campus shall be only visible to students on the Facebook Campus section.
