We Use Phones to Bank, Not to Talk to a Bank
NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- It's not a huge surprise that the days of consumers walking into a bank branch to buy a certificate of deposit or ask for a loan look numbered.
A report from Boston's Mercator Advisory Group shows 84% of U.S. adults prefer banking online or via mobile phone.
Banks know this and are responding, using technologies such as mobile alerts and social media (including Twitter, Google+ and Facebook) to reach consumers.
