Linkedin Answers – Banking 2.0

If you know me, you probably know how passionate I am about social networking and Linkedin.

Earlier this year, Linkedin launched Linkedin Answers, a similar service to Yahoo! Answers. Linkedin goals were to better engage their members, leverage their network of contacts and improve the traffic to the site.

I found a couple of interesting questions on Internet Banking, Online Banking and Mobile Banking.

– Most respondents are based in the US. I am surprised nobody talked about Wells Fargo: I am not a customer, but it is one of the most innovative banks online. I would also talk about the customer demand for Personal Finance tools and the excellent Wesabe.
