Company Details


Peanut Labs is a social monetization company that helps publishers maximize their earning potential via virtual goods and currencies offered through a mix of market research surveys, global payments, and offers. In early April, social networking giant Facebook introduced Peanut Labs’ platform as one of the first three alternate ways for users to earn Facebook’s virtual currency, Credits.

Founded by a team of serial entrepreneurs, Peanut Labs has grown from a research platform to the comprehensive monetization suite it is today. Headquartered in San Francisco, CA, the team of 25 currently manages monetization for more than 200 million monthly website visitors. The company has won numerous awards, including a FAST Top 50 2008 ranking and the Advertising Research Foundation’s 2008 Silver Innovation Award and is a wholly owned subsidiary of e-Rewards, Inc.

The company was founded in 2005 as Hotcampusparties, Inc. and changed its name to iVentster, Inc. in April 2005, and then to Peanut Labs in 2007.
