Today, Facebook announced it would hold a virtual graduation ceremony on May 15 for all seniors who will miss a personal graduation ceremony. The ceremony will serve as a stand-in for both high school and college seniors, and will feature Oprah Winfrey as a speaker from the beginning.
With the current pandemic, personal graduation ceremonies are likely to be canceled almost everywhere. Therefore, Facebook says it will organize a virtual ceremony on Facebook and Instagram.
At the event, Oprah Winfrey will be seen as a speaker at the beginning, along with other guest speakers such as Awkwafina, Jennifer Garner, Lil Nas X and Simone Biles. And Miley Cyrus will also perform "The Climb".
Facebook will list colleges and high schools by state and will also show graduate photos and videos. The company will host the event on Facebook Watch and Instagram, and graduates can host their graduation parties.
