Campus Explorer Releases Facebook App

To help high schoolers, college students and graduates connect with old and new friends, a website dedicated to college planning, has launched a new Facebook app called Connections.

The app gives students a map of where their Facebook friends are in college or went to college. The idea is to help high school kids find out  details about the schools they are thinking of attending from their personal social network, as well as to let current attendees and graduates share their stories and experiences.

Jerry Slavonia, founder/CEO of Campus Explorer explains how it works in this statement: “Connections will filter Facebook friends in a manner that visitors will be able to identify both enrolled students, as well as alumni, at colleges of interest directly from their personal contacts – then promote communication between those parties.”
