Social media has become a powerful medium today that there are already courses that aim to help students understand it. But we think Yiwu Industrial & Commercial College in Shanghai, China has brought it to the next level. (via KoreaBoo.com)

This college offers the course Modeling and Etiquette for those who want to be social media influencers.

The course includes training students in becoming the next viral personality, putting on makeup, walking on the runway, dancing, live-streaming, taking selfies, and knowing all the relevant fashion brands.

According to Korea Boo, the social media influencer's market in China is worth $7.7-billion and it's expected to double by 2018. Whoa! No wonder they're offering this course now.
