The fab BBC news podcast NewsPod from September 12th featured a report that first aired on the BBC Radio 4 service. This report asks the question, “Is Facebook the playground for the chattering class?”

Some weeks ago NPR launched an application within Facebook that allows members to play their favorite NPR podcasts on their Facebook page. As of the writing of this post, just 59 people have started using it.

Are we at the usual small & slow start of a revolution, or is this just another flavor-of-the-moment enjoying its 15 mB of fame?

[Listen to the BBC report below; the segment about Facebook starts about 17:30]
