Stanford grads to make the world a spammier place

Stanford professor BJ Fogg and Facebook fanboy extraordinare Dave McClure put on a class this fall for Stanford students interested in building their own Facebook apps. To the likely detriment of all involved, the class turned out to be a rousing success.

Here are the stats, according to the instructors.

  • Over 10 million Facebook users installed Stanford student apps
  • Over 1 million daily active users on the apps
  • 5 student apps rank among Facebook's Top 100 (competing with 9,000 other apps)

McClure and Fogg will hold "an evening of insights and demonstrations " tonight on campus. There you'll learn how you, too, can make no money off vampires, zombies and pirates.
