Editors note: Our colleague Carol Coye Benson recently experienced first hand the power of social payments and shares her experience in this post. To learn read more of Glenbrook’s thinking on social payments check out this post by Russ Jones.

I had a great online experience yesterday – the kind of thing that makes you realize how different our world is today! I found out, by reading my local newspaper (online, of course) that a filmmaker here is trying to do a documentary about two local piano teachers.  These men – incredibly – died of the very rare Creutzfeldt-Jacob disease within a few months of each other.  As it turns out, each of them had been a teacher to my now-fourteen-year-old-son.  I wanted to support the project, so I followed the link to the Kickstarter page.

I was able to log on to Kickstarter using my Facebook credentials,

And then fund my contribution using my Amazon payment capabilities.

Finally, I was able to easily send an email to the filmmaker – who (if she is able to complete funding for the film) will probably interview my son!

Now, if booking a trip online could just get this easy….
