Our main Facebook page has its category set to: Companies & Organizations – University

 

However, students aren’t able to set us as their college network, we are not included in the recent School Groups roll-out, and in various other ways Facebook doesn’t seem to see us as a school.

 

What am I missing?

Timothy,

From what I can see - all looks well. I actually went into my personal profile to edit it and see if I could add Trinity Washington University as someplace I went to school and it brought it right up and linked right to your page.

Also, I think the Schools/Groups roll-out is "rolling out" slowly and not everyone has it yet - or at least that's the impression I got -
Once groups are available at your school, a message will appear on the left side of your home page. Click See More to learn about how groups for your school work and confirm you're a member of your school community. 

You can also go to the groups for schools page to search for your college or university. 

Once you confirm that you're a member of your school community, you can join, create and add other members to groups for your school.


I think you're good!

Good Afternoon,

Like, Timothy, I cannot find our University's Facebook page when searching the new 'Groups for Schools' page. The only match that comes up is our Wikipedia Facebook page, it's a generic page and not the correct one, which is http://facebook.com/universityofnewhampshire and it is listed as a Organization - >University inside Facebook.

Any ideas?

Thank you,
Jason
