Comes to the Aid of College Students Abandoned by Facebook
NEW YORK, Sept. 27 /CNW/ -- College.com today announced the launch of a
college-only social network as a personalized, integral part of college life.
"Facebook has largely abandoned its core student audience in favor of an
open platform for widget aficionados, businesses and soccer moms," said
founder Jon Davidman. "College.com is emerging in this vacuum as the
collegiate-only social network. We connect students to their social life as
well as their course work."
The site is a one-stop shop for information and communication between
students. Students can create user profiles and connect online with people in
their classes. College.com even offers a Wake Up Call system that will alert
your phone when you need to wake for class.
College.com integrates course schedules, professor profiles and rankings,
event listings, study aids and other features that combine the academic
elements of college with a student's social life. Students can also access
online note cards to organize their workload and study for exams.
With each user's experience catered to the school they attend, students
can view school specific events from Greek life to student organizations as
well as view local news and weather information.
College.com stays true to the school by requiring an .edu address.
"Facebook is no longer for college students," said Florida State University
student Kim Allen. "Having your information listed on Facebook is like leaving
an open copy of your personal diary for anyone to read. Eventually the wrong
person is going to see that information. I don't need to lose sleep worrying
about new photos or comments that a future employer or family friends may see.
College.com allows me to have fun in college without worrying about filtering
