Facebook has announced a new service called “Groups For Schools” that requires an active “.edu” e-mail address to join. In the Groups for Schools pages, the students and faculty can exchange files, create events, and message each other.
The Groups For School service also can be a hub for campus-related subgroups. Students can browser, search, and create subgroups with Groups For Schools. Facebook will recommend subgroups based on factors like dorms, classes, and activities.
