Starting on May 11th, Instagram has a slate of programming planned as well. They’ll be the usual senior experiences like most likely votes and portrait showcases. That same week, they’ll also be new sticker packs and augmented reality effects for graduates to use in their stories and posts. Lastly, both Facebook and Instagram will introduce new graduation-themed music stickers for use in stories.
It’s probably safe to say Facebook’s graduation efforts won’t be much of a consolation to students who have seen the last year of their high school and college careers end abruptly, but it’s still better than nothing. Besides, the important part is that they’ll be able to connect with their friends and family, even if they’re not physically in the same room.
