SFU has many Facebook groups and pages meant to help students find answers to their questions and connect with their peers. The problem with these pages is that information is spread out haphazardly among them, and it's difficult to know where to ask what. uSocial will give dedicated platforms for students to ask questions about their faculty, academic program, or career path, and discuss issues in the community, as well as an area to vent the frustrations that accompany university.
How it works
Users with an SFU email log on to the uSocial webpage or Android app and navigate to the appropriate tab before posting their question or expression. Other users can comment on posts, answering questions, providing reactions, and connecting with one another.
In the future, we will be implementing a results filter by faculty/program, support for different schools, tweak the design, improve user functionality.
