Great list Cristophe. I wrote a post the other day on banks on Twitter (in Swedish though) and mentioned Bank of America, First Federal and Technology Credit Union and I'm pretty sure there are some more.

Hi Cristophe,

Congratulations!, it's a great list.

In addition to our blog community, we have different online services: official Twitter and YouTube accounts, a Facebook page or a News RSS Feed.

@Boris, thanks for your feedback and for referring to Visible Banking in "Innovate or die".

By the way, next week I will post my video interview with Matthias Koener, Founder & CEO of Fidor AG. You will find out more about their new service 2.0, "Fidor Community Banking". Stay tuned!

What about to create a new sub item in your great list about payment solutions (blogs, twitters, facebook, etc) ?

No corporate banking blogs in Kenya, but I've been doing a local banking sector blog (

@bankelele Thanks for flagging your blog. It doesn't qualify to be listed in my directory, but I invite you to promote it on the Visible Banking Page on Facebook.

@denis Thanks for your kind words.

Good suggestion: I would be delighted to have you to create (then update) this new section which will list the social media initiatives from "payment solutions".

Obviously I would make sure to give you a well-deserved visibility on Visible Banking. Interested?

Thank you Christophe . Let's start with some payment solutions on twitter :

to be completed (by every one)

Hi Christophe!

Thanks for creating this great list! What a resource.

I run the @Bellco_CU on Twitter. Thanks for including us. We also have a YouTube account: BellcoCreditUnion.

Another potential category to add would be social media usage guidelines by financial organisations. Laurel Papworth aka @Slikcharm on Twitter, has produced a great list of these for other industries but no banking ones as yet
