TalkShoe Upgrades to the Facebook Platform
March 11, 2008 — 05:26 PM PDT — by Mark ‘Rizzn’ Hopkins —

TalkShoe today announced the launch of their Facebook application. As someone who is fairly familiar and a semi-frequent user of the TalkShoe system, I can attest that this is a welcome improvement to the system. This isn’t to say that dealing with the website is in any way unpleasant, as they’ve made a number of usability and aesthetic improvements to the main website lately. On the other hand, TalkShoe, despite extensive partnerships with whitelabel social network Ning, hasn’t seen viral and exponential growth of the service despite employing many viral marketing tactics.

That could change, though, with the deployment of the Facebook application, as it’s very robust in it’s functionality. You just about everything through the Facebook application that you can do through the site. On the user side of things, you can browse, search, and join conference calls and live podcasts. On the host side of things, you can create new episodes and conference call sessions as well as perform episode management tasks.

“The TalkShoe Facebook application lets me add a whole new dimension to my social networks because I can easily and instantly invite both Facebook and non-Facebook users to join my community calls,” said well known lifecaster and avid TalkShoe host iJustine.
