Banks are built on trust between the client and the banker.
Well, advancement of technology had made it easier for people to do a lot of things; businesses especially commercial banks have not been left behind.
Over the years, banks in Kenya have increasingly embraced social media platforms so as to be next to their customers 24/7. However, there are dangers of such engagement.
Today, KCB Bank Group administrator on Twitter shared personal details of a client for all to see.
