I just found this
list of the best Corporate Social Media and Networks today. Amazingly long list that is short of bank examples. Here are the few financial links which includes both the good, the bad and the ugly:
- American Express. Blogging: OPEN Forum.
- Bank of America:
- BBVA. Social networks: Finance community.
- Fidelity Investments:
- H&R Block:
- HSBC. Social networks: Stop the Great HSBC Graduate Rip-Off on Facebook. The HSBC Business Network for entrepreneurs.
- Securities and Exchange Commission. Microblogging: Twitter account.
- Wells Fargo:
Thanks to Peter Kim for compiling the long list and, although it doesn't include all the ones I would include, e.g. where's Zopa's blog or RBC's Campus blogs and Facebook apps, it is pretty exhaustive.
Meanwhile, my favourite story of the day is the one where a Japanese woman has been arrested because her virtual husband in the MMORG Maplestory virtually divorced her, suddenly and without explanation.
How very dare he!!!
So she went round to her virtual husband's house in the real world, nicked his username and password for the game ... and killed the virtual him.
If found guilty of hacking his PC, as seems likely, she could face five years in jail in the real life.
She should have robbed a virtual bank instead as no-one would have jailed her for that would they?
