AJ Magnuson leads the product strategy and development initiatives as Vice President of Product at
FanBridge. AJ was formerly a Co-Founder of damntheradio, the popular social media platform used by the likes of Sony Music and Gatorade, which was acquired by FanBridge in 2011.

Facebook, Hi5, Bebo, Myspace and Orkut.
