StudyBlue®, an online and mobile study system for students, announces the launch of Friends with Brainefits, a new Facebook application that helps students remember important concepts in their most critical subjects by challenging their Facebook friends to use need-to-know terms in creative and unique ways.

Every day (or every other), Friends with Brainefits posts a term and definition from a subject-specific flashcard deck to the user’s Facebook wall.The app allows Facebook users to select from over 30 subjects, each of which contains 100 terms and definitions culled from StudyBlue’s collection of online flashcards. Users can practice for college entrance exams like the ACT®, SAT®, GRE® and MCAT® tests; learn vocabulary in Spanish, German and French; study key concepts in Biology, Psychology, Economics, Anatomy and Art History; or use the app for Advanced Placement exam prep.
