Facebook supports high school, college and workplace networks. (Till recently, Facebook allowed regional networks too but has done away with the same as regional boundaries continue to get blurred in the realm of internet.) It’s not just a great way to network with your colleagues and classmates but the network gets added to your profile in the ‘Basic Info’ section as well! That looks über cool!
In case your college or workplace network doesn’t exist on Facebook, you can suggest the network to Facebook via these links:
Note: You are required to have a company provided email address (on the company domain) to join your workplace network. For college/university networks however it’s not mandatory.
Soon you will get an automated response from FB with the instructions. You should supply the information sought in the mailer and mail it to
In the subject line, you may write Re: My College/University Network Doesn’t Exist on Facebook Yet. For company network suggestions, you must be mailing from your work email address.
For college/university networks
1. Full name of your school - <full name of your college>
2. City - <city>
3. State, country - <state>, <country>
4. Your school’s website - <write if your school has one>
5. Whether your school provides email addresses to students (yes or no) - <yes/no>
6. Your graduation year - <200x>
7. Please also copy and paste this email -<your FB login mail address>
For workplace networks
1. The name of your workplace - <full name of your workplace>
2. The official website of your workplace - <website>
3. Your official work email address - <company provided email address (mandatory)>
4. A copy of this email - <your FB login mail address>
Now wait for a few days till you get a mail from FB like this.
This network has been added to the site, but may not appear for 24 hours. Once this network appears on the site, you will be able to join the network by selecting “Account Settings” from the Settings drop-down menu and going to the Networks tab. Let me know if you have any further questions.
I had suggested my college network (sponsored link) few days back and it took about 10 days before I got the above reply. Once your network is created, go to the Networks tab in your Facebook account settings page. Start typing your college/workplace name, select it once it appears in the dropdown list and click the Join Network button.
Note: In high school networks, only existing students are allowed to join, not the alum. To be able to join your high school network, you must clearly type out your high school name in full and mention leaving year in your profile info. In the Networks tab in your Facebook account settings page, start typing your high school name, select it once it appears in the dropdown list and click the Join Network button, if you are still attending high school, that is.
