The Class of 2020 may have experienced some losses due to the COVID-19 pandemic, however, Facebook is going all out for the graduating class. According to the networking platform, there will be a live graduation streamed live on Facebook to commemorate students all over.
Media mogul Oprah Winfrey will deliver the commencement speech and other celebrities including Simone Biles, Jennifer Garber, Lil Nas X, and Awkwafina will also be in attendance to celebrate this joyous occasion. Students can also expect a performance from music star Miley Cyrus.
According to TechCrunch:
The event kicks off at 11AM PT/2PM ET on May 15 via the Facebook Watch App. Four days prior, Instagram will start showing daily videos “that spotlights iconic senior experiences — from ‘most likely’ votes to portrait showcases to senior skip day.” The company will also be offering features to host a “virtual graduation ceremony and party” on the site.
This is awesome!
