Facebook users love listening to their favorite talk radio shows and podcasts on Stitcher Radio. The program has a strong presence on mobile devices, but announced Wednesday that it has improved the desktop experience and deepened its Facebook integration, allowing users’ listening choices to seamlessly connect with their profile.
Facebook is getting lampooned all over the Web for its tumbling stock price. DCM Capital, which tracks social media sentiment, wanted to find out if there was any sort of link between the way people are dismissing Facebook on Twitter and the decline of the social network’s stock price. While there is a correlation, it’s a stretch to say that tweets drowned the stock.
After using social music applications such as Spotify and Pandora, Noah Shanok, CEO of Stitcher Radio, wanted to find some way for talk radio fans to share their favorite podcasts and programs. Thus, the Stitcher Radio application was born. Since Stitcher deepened its Facebook integration in February, the app has taken off, earning a featured story in the site’s developers blog. Shanok told AllFacebook that the future sounds pretty sweet for Stitcher Radio.
