Cheryl LaGuardia from LibraryJournal posted a link to Facebook applications for Education.

Some of the applications are for using when writing your dissertation, others allow you to create flashcards on Facebook while others allow you to create study groups. My institution only started using Facebook recently – and the list includes some useful links.

Here is the complete list:
