Instagram to Bring a Feature for College Community Groups
Facebook owned Instagram a new feature especially designed for college goers. A report from CNBC tells that feature will let student group them into college community lists.
The move is a reminiscence of Facebook that started out as a college-exclusive social networking platform.
The service is focused at college students that are enrolled with Universities or in process to get enrolled. Using the feature students can join their college community to connect with other students. Students are added to a class-based list where they add their university and graduating year to their profile.
Other users can also view the group members’ public Stories and direct message them from the community lists.
Instagram officially admitted that the feature is being tested with a select group of users. The feature is equipped with tools to report any inappropriate usage. As students are more inclined to engage via social networks, more companies have started focusing on catering to university students with extra precautions to keep their platforms safe.
