Facebook Campus, A Student-Only Section Is Now Official

Facebook has launched a new section called Campus - a product within the main app for college students to talk about, well, other college students and school.

Facebook Campus, on top of requiring a.edu mail id, will also require a graduation year to access, the user must not have graduated from the school more than 5 years prior to the current date. Years on, Facebook has now launched "Campus" on Facebook. You can also add details like major classes, minor, and hometown, but they're optional.

The platform will also implore students to make more meaningful peer connections by entering information like their major, which classes they're taking, and which dorm building they're living in.

The feature is now available only in 30 universities around the United States, including Johns Hopkins, Northwestern, University of Louisville, Vassar, and Virginia Tech.

Facebook announced Thursday the pilot of a new college-only section on the platform called Facebook Campus that is meant to serve as a hub for students on college campuses.

Avengers Star Diana Rigg Dies at 82
Many, of course, will know her from the great role of her later years: the sly, peevish Lady Olenna Tyrell on Game of Thrones . She has also appeared in episodes of popular shows like Doctor Who and Victoria , and has starred in a variety of TV movies.

With all of the scrutiny it's attracted in recent years, it is, of course, not surprising that the company has also penned another blog post detailing its privacy policy for Campus, which it says is created to be 'safe, inclusive and optional'. The first is the Campus News Feed - again, this will be separate from your main Facebook feed - that includes updates from classmates, study groups, and more.

For Facebook, and Mark Zuckerberg in particular, this is rewinding the clock by 12-14 years. Interestingly, Harvard University, on whose campus Facebook was founded in 2004, is not in the list of universities that will have Campus.

There is Campus Directory as well that lets students find and make friends with fellow students from the same institution. In fact, a number of universities have already partnered with Facebook to bring this Campus feature to its student base. Facebook launched Facebook Campus to assist students. Though the profile will be new, the profile photo and cover image of the Facebook profile will be used here as well.

The company said that Campus Groups and Events would not be made public. What you write on Facebook Campus will only be visible to people within the same Campus as you. Also Read - How to link or unlink Instagram account to Facebook?
