Roundup of Social Lending News – November 12, 2011

Every Saturday I bring you the latest news from the world of peer to peer lending. These are the best of the news articles and blog posts from around the web that I shared on Twitter this past week.

It seems that this past week was blogger update week with several bloggers providing updates on their Lending Club investments. But the most tweeted story of the week was probably the short article on one of Reuters blogs about Lending Club and the anger consumers have about big banks. Smart Peer Lending continues to do some interesting analysis although we are still awaiting details on how he has created his algorithms. Have a good weekend.
