Facebook Announces Groups for Schools

Facebook has announced a new kind of groups which are for the schools and colleges. To join these special groups, students must have school email address.

Facebook anounced,”Today we’re announcing Groups for Schools, which allow people with an active school email address to join groups at their college or university.”

“You can join a group for your major to discuss classes, for your sorority to plan upcoming events, or for your dorm to share photos,” it added.

This time, this new feature is now available for all schools but will be rolled out for the globe soon.

These nw groups are not the same as the regular Facebook groups. These groups also have file sharing option. So users can share files, lecture notes and projects with their college mates. But Facebook only allow 25 MB to share the file. Althogh there are many file sharing service available, but having an interactive file sharing will be a fun.

All the posts of the group will only be visible to the member of the people who go to same school. So no body from outside can see the posts.

You can sign up to find out when it will be available at your school.
