Facebook rolls out new feature for college students

Social networking giant Facebook has launched a new feature called Campus, a section of the main app specifically designed for college students.

Campus is designed to be a place where students can interact only with peers at their school; they can access a Campus-only News Feed and join Groups, events, and group chat rooms, called Campus Chats, pertaining to campus life.

Facebook acknowledged the move is a nod to its early days, when it started as an online social network for college campuses.

Facebook was a college-only network, and now we’re returning to our roots with Facebook Campus to help students make and maintain these relationships, even if they’re away from their college,” the release said.
