Ok, so- I've never ever made a Facebook account, but have Instagram and Snapchat- how important do you think it is to have facebook for uni, and do you think it's too late for me to make one now?

Thanks

I'd make one. Seems logical, and honestly, my class' group chat is a life saver.

I'd say if you're comfortable with it, go for it. It's a good way to keep in contact with people.

Yes, a Facebook group chat. Contains my entire class, and we throw around essay briefs, notes, etc.

It's never too late to make a Facebook, and if you're attending uni next year, it's probably best to make one right now so you're comfortable with it when you start. Of course, it's not gonna be a game changer but it's a great social tool.

I'd say FB is the main social media platform you should be on while at uni. So many class and society events are organised on it, so you'd miss out on so much socially by not being on it. When I was at uni, we had a class group on FB, where we shared resources and tips for class, so definitely helped academically as well

facebook is important at uni

group work tends to be organised there, spontaneous outings/socialising, and chats for your whole course for help etc are all useful

certainly at my uni, facebook is important when connecting with class mates for group work etc.

You can always set it up, and if you dont feel like you need it then you can easily delete your account
