I love this! Great work on the design, @marianoavila. Is this live on any campuses yet?

@pottsjustin Thanks Justin! We've been doing trials with a few universities in the US over the past couple months to see how students are using it. We're hoping to gain more insight into that with this launch and adapt the product based on feedback.

Backpack looks slick and well-timed with the decline of Facebook usage.

Design looks fresh and love the name. The focus reminds me a bit of Islands (cc @gregisenberg). I'm curious if you can share how people are using it now. The most fascinating thing about new social products is discovering patterns or unexpected use cases that emerge once it's out there.

@gregisenberg @rrhoover Thanks Ryan! What we've seen so far is that students are forming groups based on shared-interests and using the group messaging feature for class projects. Will write an article on it when we get more data in a few weeks :)
this looks awesome! how many/what universities is Backpack at? @marianoavila
