But for those that can’t make it, we’ve got a virtual graduation hub – classof2020.fb.com – for ways to celebrate graduates, like hosting a virtual graduation ceremony on Facebook Live. And we’ve got graduation-themed AR Effects on the Facebook app, Instagram, and Messenger including graduation speech filters with customizable tassels and college-themed stoles.
And of course, graduation goes beyond celebration. It’s about starting fresh, heading out on your own. To support grads as they do that, we will launch Community Help in the U.S. in coming weeks for college students and high school seniors headed to college. Students, teachers, and alumni can offer and request assistance with career, housing, moral support, fitness, and supplies.
