Zopa-a-like peer-to-peer loans on Facebook

The Facebook as a platform thing has only been going a very short while but already we're seeing people taking the opportunity to innovate in all sorts of directions.

One application which caught my eye was the Lending Club, a US -only service aimed at building a community of people to lend one another money. Sounds like the Zopa concept (eBay-for-loans).

Come to think of it it can only be a matter of time before some Zopa gadgets for Facebook start appearing...

You can find out more about LendingClub at its off-Facebook blog...
