Snapchat’s popular Our Story feature has been used to capture live events around the world — everything from the World Cup to the Electric Daisy Carnival. Now, Snapchat’s bringing Our Story to college campuses.
Launching today at UCLA, USC, Penn State, and UT Austin, “Our Campus Story” lets students post snaps of what’s happening around town to one communal Story. But there’s one key difference between Campus Story and the company’s previous series of Stories: only users present on campus can post and watch. But don’t expect a stream of kegstands and scantily clad students. Snapchat plans to moderate each and every Campus Story, as it has done with past live Stories, only approving appropriate snaps for distribution.
