Facebook Applications and Money?

There are companies that make money as Facebook applications. I would like to do the same. How can I educate myself on how to make money by building Facebook Applications or anything else having to do with Social Media?
Thank you.

I’ve heard that Stanford computer science department offers a course on how to develop facebook apps.

There are sites that sell facebook application components, don’t remember the name though.

Hey Mike is that real??? I have never come across any such course ever before…

The facebook developers forum and wiki will provide you with valuable information.


Get started for Facebook Developers is probably what you are looking for.
