"In the era of social communities where we rely on typed messaging to stay up to date on the lives and activities of members of our social networks, we have lost sight of the power of a voice conversation. By allowing Facebook users to integrate TalkShoe community calls into their profiles, we are empowering them to connect on a deeper level with their communities while preserving the convenience and simplicity of their social networking experience."
