The Facebook was a place originally designed for college students. It was the actual idea of the company’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg. But, most of us know that Facebook has presented much more and bigger than the initial approach and expectations. However, after at least 16 years, we have experienced Facebook isn’t just a social network. The company also has a cultural phenomenon that has taken over the world. Facebook has more than 1.69 billion users to put things into perspective. Point to be noted that its net worth is over $527 billion. The net worth of Mark Zuckerberg is somewhere about $111 billion.
It is noteworthy that Facebook Campus is the latest product from Facebook that designed to be a social network exclusive for students. It’s a place where students can connect to other students and enjoy a college-related newsfeed. They can be a part of student groups and can chat with other students, and much more. It’s pretty much like present-day Facebook, just for students only. Students can open an account with Campus by using their ‘.edu’ email address and their graduation year. They can customize their profile once they sign up, using their profile and cover photos, add information such as their major, dorm, minor, off-campus interests, hometown, etc.
The Campus is currently available only for students that attend one of 30 universities within the United States. These universities are Johns Hopkins University, Northwestern University, Rice University, and more. It’s a bit odd that Harvard University, where Facebook was born, is not on that list. Most experts believe that this is Zuckerberg being nostalgic about his student days and finishing what he originally meant to create. They believe that Campus is an attempt by Facebook to keep younger people on the platform. Moreover, it is still to find out will this resonates with young people?
