What’s behind Bloomberg’s Facebook group “Money Talks”
Mădălina Ciobanu of Journalism.co.uk writes about Bloomberg’s first Facebook group, a personal finance-focused site called “Money Talks.”
Ciobanu writes, “So she came up with the idea of creating Money Talks, a Facebook community she now oversees. Since April, it has grown organically to 1,859 members (at the time of writing), from people who work in finance to students and young professionals all around the world.
“‘We also put call outs about the group at the bottom of our stories, telling people that they can join the community to discuss more about personal finance issues,’ Hess told Journalism.co.uk.
“The group is described as a place to ‘openly discuss everything involving your money’, including tips on investing, avoiding debt, or when to save and splurge, through Q&As and posts from Bloomberg News reporters and industry experts.
“Its description includes a disclaimer that the group is not ‘providing any individual investment advice in connection with this community, nor are we endorsing any particular strategy, fund or adviser’.”
