Roundup of Social Lending News – October 29, 2011

Every Saturday I bring you the latest news from the world of peer to peer lending. These are the best of the news articles and blog posts from around the web that I shared on Twitter this past week.

Some big changes at Prosper this week that I wrote about here (make sure you also read the comments to get the full picture). Prosper provides their own take on these changes below. And for a counterpoint to the insurgence of p2p lending read the Xintendo blog post below. It is always good to hear different perspectives. Enjoy your weekend.
