Islands is a new social media app exploding on college campuses designed to connect students through like-minded activities, interests, and hobbies.
Designed as a “Swiss Army knife for all things on campus”, creator Greg Isenberg believes the app will change how university students communicate with their peers. Unlike Facebook or Snapchat that connect students who already know one another, Islands introduces students to new peer groups by unlocking all the different group chats on campus. So far, freshmen are the largest group of early adopters. Look for Islands to jump markets and move down into high school by next semester.
