To increase the efficiency in promoting and communicating, simplex transmission activity should be converted to a communication activity. Target is not the “mass” but the “individual’s in today’s banking business. Because of these reasons it is a necessity to reach individuals, determine their expectations via specialized tools, and build up strategies for these expectations. Social media helps banks to produce concurrent, effective and fast solutions with its opportunities for practicing the aimed communication at this level.
