Abram Brown is a senior editor at Forbes, where he covers social media, influencers—and every other way we communicate digitally. In the past, he directed Forbes.com's features coverage and edited across Forbes magazine. As a writer, he has reported from three continents—from the mines of Nigeria to the mansions of Greenwich. He has worked on over a dozen Forbes lists, profiled the 63rd, 153rd, and 478th richest person in the world, and once spent a delightful evening discussing murder mysteries over 25-year-old scotch with (top-earning author) James Patterson. Both men drink Macallan, and both believe the butler really did do it.
