    The Bank of Facebook? It's a radical idea, but it could boost the Menlo Park, Calif.-based company's revenue and keep it relevant to a new generation of mobile users who have eschewed its status updates and candid photos. But a move into e-money and financial services would mark a major strategic shift for a company that today generates the bulk of its revenue and profit from advertising.

    Facebook is applying for a banking licence – it already does very well as a ‘shop window’ for brands with targeting ads and so on. Could Facebook create its own banking boutique?

    There’s no reason why Apple could not be the layer before bank transactions. The App Store could expand to encompass financial services and sell a wide range of items and services. The banks would continue to operate the ‘backroom’ infrastructure, the nuts and bolts of transactions, but Apple would become the showroom.

    The cataclysmic asteroid-strike is coming, in the form of the mobile payments and online wallets. It could be Google, or Apple, or someone else who cracks the mobile payment conundrum, and becomes the ‘Facebook of banking’.

    And whoever cracks it would certainly reap hefty financial rewards. Apple already has 500 million credit cards registered on iTunes, and Tim Cook has talked about his interest in payments.

  • coming to a short near you!

    Banking will be "fun"

    Mobile banking is hot — and getting hotter.

    Last year, 74,000 consumers a day began using mobile banking services such as paying bills and making balance inquiries and transfers, according to Javelin Strategy & Research.

    “The adoption of mobile banking is occurring at a breakneck pace,” Javelin said, “with 4 in 10 mobile bankers having used the service for the first time in the past year.”

    Javelin expects that 48 percent of mobile consumers will conduct mobile banking this year, up from 43 percent in 2013.

    “By 2018, more than 6 in 10 mobile consumers, or 63 percent, are anticipated to be using mobile banking,” the company said.

    Over the next five years, Javelin said, the stream of customers switching “to financial institutions with superior mobile services will soon become a river.”

    At its core, mobile banking refers to systems that allow customers of a financial institution to conduct a number of transactions through a mobile device such as a smartphone.

    But not all mobile banking services are the same.

    “What consumers should shop for is a relationship that’s relevant to them,” said Chris Gaginis, director of congressional affairs at the Consumer Bankers Association. “There are certain products and services that some banks may offer that some other banks, depending on their size and location, are unable to do.”

    In other words, what do you really want out of your financial institution?

    “As consumers evaluate their different options, rather than considering mobile banking as a stand-alone product, it’s important for consumers to shop for the account that meets their transaction needs best,” said Tom Feltner, director of financial services at the Consumer Federation of America.

    “If one of those transaction needs is the ability to check balances on the road outside their home, to be able to pay bills through their mobile phone, as well as to be able to deposit checks outside of their branch network, then mobile banking makes a lot of sense,” he said.

    Beyond mobile deposit capture, Kofax and Mitek have taken mobile simplicity to a new level by leveraging the photo taking capability of a mobile device to eliminate keystrokes, simplify applications, facilitate bill payment and account transfers, provide digital security for documents and validate customer information. Both firms also say new simplified processes are on the way, making mobile banking easier and even fun...
