Wednesday, October 1, 2008 Goes Social With The NPR Community

National Public Radio, already strong online with free downloads from many of its shows, is boosting its digital ambitions with Monday's introduction of social-networking features akin to Facebook. The new social-networking tools, even though they initially will be available only at, will help local listeners connect with one another and with local stations. The new tools let listeners create personal profiles and declare other listeners or NPR staffers as friends. They also can add a photo of themselves and list their favorite books, movies and NPR programs and -- soon -- their local station.
