Roundup of Social Lending News – September 1, 2012

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 was a very light news week to say the least. The biggest news item of the week was one that was not very flattering to p2p lending at all. I am ok with writers not liking p2p lending as an investment but I don’t appreciate it when a widely read website makes false and misleading statements which is the case on this Business Insider article below. I had to make a comment which they thankfully published. In more positive news it is good to see SocietyOne making some headway in the p2p lending space down under. Enjoy your long weekend.
