Fampus Aims to be Best Curated Database of Events for College Students

Fampus Aims to be Best Curated Database of Events for College Students | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it
As college students get back into the swing of things at school this fall, Des Moines-based startup Fampus is hoping to make itself a prominent part of their planning.

 

Fampus has a core team of 12 employees, plus 3-5 interns at every school where it’s operational. Goldman said the curation of event data made possible by the company’s presence on the ground at schools helps separate Fampus from other alternatives.

 

“We’re of the philosophy that if we go out there and accumulate all the data and clean it, if you will, and make sure that it’s all accurate with that very comprehensive list of events, we’re going to provide the best database of events out there,” Goldman (left, photo courtesy of Fampus) said.

Throw in the fact that Facebook is well known for its arbitrary suspending or deleting of accounts and if their march for dominance on the Web doesn’t worry you … well .. here’s some more kool-aid for you."

[Steve Hodson, codenut]

Do you know what Facebook is going to do with your fan base? Whatever they bloody well please, that's what. They have a track record.

If you felt bad when we asked, how do you feel about Facebook owning your content? How do you feel when Facebook uses your database?
