Top 10 Educational Apps for Facebook

With the evolution of the web and social networking in particular I decided to compile a list of educational apps for the most popular social network in the world, Facebook. The use of Facebook in education usually brings about some controversy but there is no denying the impact it has on collaboration for it's users. While Facebook might not be allowed in most districts there is definitely an educational benefit that students and teachers can gain alike.
