HSBC launches a social network for bank customers
HSBC is getting into the social game.
On Tuesday, the bank launched the HSBC Connections Hub, a platform to keep its business clients connected to each other through a specialized business hub.

What’s different about it is that it uses machine-learning algorithms to “match” companies with potential partners.
