SUPER interesting play on radio and podcasting. Traditional podcasting has never really been social (online). So many apps have tried to build a community around listening and sharing audio content, but none have taken off (Product Hunt podcasts included). Anchor and Bumpers are super interesting but still early. Eager to see how this plays out.

@rrhoover This is huge. 'FOCUS' is the only reason Facebook has beat twitter in 'social.' Had Jack Dorsey focussed on Twitter alone, we would have had far more superior products than Facebook from Twitter. Sigh. P.S. - This comes from someone who loves bootstrap and digits by twitter.

Anchor is fantastic at building a community around discovery @rrhoover. I've not found that same kind of benefit within the Facebook closed system. I think the persons who seek alternative communities will continue to seek them out whereas I predict Facebook Live Audio will simply be another tool in Fb's wheelhouse. โ†’Not game-changing though.

@rrhoover concerning the last part of your comment, it is not early but it is the way you approach marketing the need for voice sharing

Facebook testing out LIVE Audio! Essentially, Facebook Live but with no video - Similar in this space is Unmute "Over the next few weeks, weโ€™ll be testing Live Audio with several partners, including BBC World Service, LBC, Harper Collins, and authors Adam Grant and Britt Bennett. Early next year, we plan to make this new format more broadly available to publishers and people." Facebook is on ๐Ÿ”ฅ with new launches recently Messenger Camera and Messenger Group Chats

Just take off the word "LIVE" and that's what I want! Make audio a first-class citizen.
