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.
