The summer issue of the State of the Net looks at the business benefits of social media "beyond the fluff". It provides user statistics for Ireland and compares that to worldwide figures. This issue also examines online banking and online telephony trends, reports on B2B sales and provides the latest data on Irish Internet usage.
The Irish Internet Association is delighted to welcome our second new member today: PostBank. PostBank are a relatively new player in the banking field built “on a commitment to make banking more accessible throughout Ireland, Postbank can be found in Post Offices, providing a friendly service in an atmosphere you know and trust.” They also have great plans for future products including a range of account types and credit cards. Although they have a fab looking site with charming illustrations methinks they have great plans to boost their internet activity, kicking off with joining the IIA. So welcome!
