Web 2.0 and Financial Literacy... Something else to consider and use



Let's consider talking for a moment about a not exactly financial subject that we are using and working with on a regular basis: Web 2.0

In addition to the thorough financial information we read on the news and particularly on the Internet on a minute-by-minute basis from global financial markets, the concept Web 2.0 implies for the public a whole new tool intended to explode the ability to communicate and share our thoughts and preoccupations about how those global markets are doing, how they affect us and on the other hand, a thorough source of educational information about the key subject we talk on this blog: Financial Literacy…

Since a key Web 2.0 component are blogs, there are many good pieces of information about many finance related subjects: news, financial literacy, credit cards, mortgages, financial dictionaries, investments, financial markets (a good blog is Felix Salmon’s Market Movers), etc.

Let's watch this video about financial financial blogs and its growing role as informational / educational online tools...

Dear Sara,

First of all, I must thank you for stopping by and letting me know your interest about what is being discussed here (financial literacy as a whole).

Even though our comments about a subject like this one could be some times a bit technical because you -as an investor or people trying to save her money as carefully as possible- should be familiar about how you spend / save your money, sometimes it could be a bit complex to understand and handle (but NOT too much, believe me).

I invite you to continue visiting and check what websites (on the links section) could be useful for you - I suggest the websites and blogs under the Financial Literacy category.

Please let me know if you are looking for something else; fortunately for all of us, there's a lot of information on the subject.

Thank you very much.

Kind regards.
