Dublin, Nov. 30, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Social Media And Banking: Friends, Foes Or Frenemies?" report has been added to Research and Markets' offering.

As with the entertainment and information industries before it, our industry is coming to terms with the radically decentralised, person-to-person potency of social media: centralised authority is being replaced by empowered consumers - and the social media platforms that excite them the most.

While Facebook, WeChat and the like have been busily developing far-reaching networks for person-to-person payments, banks in general have been more tentative when it comes to this distributed, grassroots-supported approach to circulating money and credit.

Now, with several banks having made decisive moves, social media has long gone beyond being a megaphone for customer feedback: this indispensable report looks at the implications of social media as a tool, a threat and an opportunity within a banking and payments context.
