    Facebook Rolling Out New Service 'Campus' For College Students

     

    Facebook 'Campus' is currently rolling out to thirty universities in the US

    Facebook has launched a new service for college students called 'Campus'. Facebook campus is 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.

    Students across the country are facing new challenges as some campuses shift to partial or full-time remote learning, so it’s more important than ever to find a way to stay connected to college life.

    In the early days, Facebook was a college-only network, and now returning to it's roots with Facebook Campus to help students make and maintain these relationships, even if they’re away from their college.

    How It Works

    Facebook Campus is a dedicated section of the Facebook app designed for students, with a Campus profile that’s different from their main Facebook profile.

    • First students can make a Campus profile on Facebook App, which will be separate from their regular Facebook account.
    • After that, they have to register their college email address and graduation year.
    • However, other information like their major, classes, hometown, dorm, and minor, etc. are optional.
    • Once a Campus profile is set up, students can discover Groups and Events unique to their school, and connect with classmates who share similar interests.
    • When content is shared on Campus, only people within Campus will see it.


    Key Features

    • Campus-only News Feed: Campus is a college email-verified space designed for students to get updates from classmates, groups and events in a college-specific feed.
    • Campus directory: A classmates directory is created to make it easy to find and meet new people.
    • 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.


    Availability And Privacy

    Facebook Campus is currently rolling out to thirty universities in the US. Privacy and security are at the core of Campus. Campus does not have public Groups or public Events like Facebook does.

    •  Groups and Events in Campus are limited to your school so no one outside of your Campus can access or search for them.
    • You can block someone on Facebook or Campus. When someone you’ve blocked is logged into Facebook, they won’t be able to find you on Facebook or in the Campus directory.
    • Moreover, the person who creates a Campus group chat can choose to remove the chat from Campus.
