Roundup of Social Lending News – October 8, 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.

No major news stories this week but some excellent coverage for the p2p lending industry nonetheless. Renaud Laplanche, CEO of Lending Club, was interviewed on Fox Business on Friday, giving broad exposure to his company and the industry. Then there was the local newspaper in Spokane, the Spokesman-Review running a story about p2p lending on the front page of their print newspaper. It all helps spread the word for potential investors and borrowers. Enjoy your weekend.
