About Adam

Adam is a growth hacker with 17 years professional expertise. He has been a computer hacker since the 1980s, cited in Lotus Magazine in his early teens. Adam’s passion for viral user experience design led him to create Twibes (currently ranked first in Google for “Twitter groups”) and Zuckerbucks, the first virtual currency on Facebook.

Adam was featured in Microsoft’s “A Startup A Week” documentary series, where he built a Facebook app to help Room to Read raise money for a computer lab in Cambodia. His Facebook app “Dumb Americans” won an overnight coding contest at the CommunityNext conference in San Jose. In addition to speaking at several conferences on viral application design, Adam produces and sells a training course for business owners called “Twitter Turbocharger.”

Adam got burnt out on programming briefly in 1996 and took a short 11 month trip around the world to visit 24 countries. From 2000-2003, he lived and worked in London as a software consultant before returning to his native Seattle.

Adam:

Love your work on Twibes. Great implementation of a great idea. Hope we get to work on a project together someday.

Hi
I am searching for a way to export fans of a fb group (I’m on a mac) to .csv and came across your mention of the “export group members to .csv” app, but unfortunately it’s ‘dead’. I wrote to the author without response and hoped you may have other ideas. It’s not my own group (I’m not an admin) but one that I’m a member of.
Thanks for any suggestion,
Frank

Hey Adam

I’m kinda regurgitating what Frank said back in December, we’ve been tryin to work the Ruby script for exporting FB fans with no luck. Any sorta updated script or does FB have it closed off?

Thank You for lighting the path!

Hello,

I was wondering if you accept guest post for your blog. If you do, I would like to submit a few. I’m a recent college graduate, with an English major, looking to build out my portfolio. I can write on a wide variety of topics and am sure you would be happy with the quality. Please email me back if you are interested. Thank you for your time.

HI Adam, We are in a desperate need to mine some data from FB, we are a non profit group giving away a wedding to one lucky couple, and little announced to us, we learned about buying votes. A stipulation to our rules was people had to like both their photo and our booth. I did mine the fans with your code. However, I am not getting the likes off of the photos, it will only give me about 500 of them, and some people have received more than 4500. Can you help me in any way shape or form:

Respectfully,

George Sickler

Hi Adam,
I am curious if you would be interested in talking to me about a new start up in Seattle.
And now I cant tell you a lot what I can give you is…
-car
-mobile
-japanese funding
-you would be #6 – #16
They are just scratching the surface of phase I, with that being said I have about 10 jobs open, 10 more to come in Feb/March and so was curious if this one is not a good fit, would you be interested in seeing the other jobs I have open with them?
I look forward to hearing from you and of course, as always I give referral bonus’ to anyone you can send me way.
Cheers,
Annie
