Facebook`s new feature for students

Facebook is getting back to its roots with the launch of Campus, a new section only available to students. Facebook authorities came up with the announcement on Thursday.

According to Facebook's new announcement, college and university students will be able to create a completely different profile outside of the original Facebook to communicate with each other using the Facebook campus. Where they have to use the college email address and graduation date. However, students will able to access the Facebook campus from their original Facebook account, which is a lot like Facebook Watch.

Once a Campus profile is set up, students can discover groups and events unique to their school, and connect with classmates with similar interests.

There will also be separate newsfeeds for colleges and universities on the Facebook campus. Which will be varied according to the departments and faculties. Not only that, here students can open campus-related events where only students of his department or faculty get access. Moreover, there is also the facility of a real-time chat called 'Campus Chat'.

Facebook began in 2004 as 'TheFacebook,' a social networking service for Harvard students developed by Mark Zuckerberg and several classmates. Later it was eventually opened up to anyone who could verify they were at least 13 years old.
