College courses on Facebook!

Stanford University is now offering a course in how to use Facebook… specifically on “application deployment.” Stanford Course. Got to love that spunk (way to snake the fame from Harvard, from whence came the founders)! How quick are business schools getting up to speed?

Stanford is clearly paving the way in terms of “getting” new media. A recent competition by Google (Earth 3-D) was won by a Stanford team.

Here is the Facebook Group on the Stanford course. And here is a great “history” (kind of all you need to know) of Facebook.

    And does anyone know of any other schools offering similar cutting edge courses?
