Facebook started in Mark Zuckerberg’s dormitory at Harvard University in 2004, and previously, only college students could register for the social media network. Well, the company appears to be going back to its roots with a new “Campus” feature, a new space exclusive for college students. Some of the leaked screenshots from Jane Wong include a sign-up page inviting users to add their year of their graduation, subjects of their degree as well as their dormitory.
Snapchat has just launched several new Lenses to bring awareness to the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for the World Health Organization. Using the the Snapchat camera, users can scan 23 international currency (like a Bank of England note, US dollar, etc.) notes across 33 countries to activate an AR visualization of how donations support the World Health Organization’s immediate response efforts to track the spread of COVID-19.
Facebook’s NPE Team has just released Tuned, an iPhone app designed for couples. It’s touted as a “private space”, complete with a scrapbook-like feed, where partners can share notes, photos, cards, voice clips, Spotify songs, and even your mood if you need some motivation. How does it work? Once downloaded, you simply add a partner through their phone number.
