The company also points out that, in times of isolation and quarantine, Facebook Campus is established as a way to keep university communities together. With Facebook College, users will be able to make new friends, find others with similar interests.
Facebook Campus is a specific section that will be displayed in the app. Users will have a “Campus” profile that is different from the profile they use on Facebook. To create a profile on Campus, university students just have to point to their university email, and indicate the year of graduation.

In their profiles, if they wish, they can include other information such as their subjects, teachers, city of origin. By creating their profile, they will be able to access Groups and Unique Events for their study center. They can also connect with classmates and share content, that only other people connected to «Campus» will see. In this sense, users have access to a publication feed that only shows content published by other participants on Campus.
