Farcast is social
Non-Farcast podcast audiences listen silently and alone. Farcast brings listeners together and gives each a voice. At Farcast, your listeners will come for your show, but stay for the community.
Farcast helps grow your listening audience by overcoming three common barriers: region, device platform and language. Because Farcast.FM and Farcast's universal directory are available in more languages and countries than any other, you will reach a larger more distant audience.
Traditional podcasting has never allowed listeners to communicate easily with the show creator or with other listeners. Using the Farcast.FM app listeners can reach out directly to you and can share their thoughts and opinions. And listeners can chime in and discuss your podcast with one another long after you've produced it. Your shows will feel like a live experience.
AN INTERNATIONAL audience
Farcast apps and Farcast's universal directory are available in more languages and countries than any other. What does this mean for you? It means that you may find that your show about great movies has huge potential in another country. For example, Sergei in Russia, who uses the Russian language version of Farcast.FM often searches for podcasts related to Hollywood and cinema. Farcast's multi-lingual directory allows him to find your show - Russian and English podcasts are both listed in our directory. And Farcast.FM allows him to do his searches in Russian but choose to include English results as well. No other podcast directory is as powerful as ours.

The Farcast.FM app allows listeners to communicate with you, the podcaster, and with other listeners. It does this in several ways. First, listeners can take advantage of a built-in messaging app that allows them to send messages directly to you without leaving the app and opening email or any other messaging app. Second, they can provide feedback to you in the form of virtual applause. You can find out at exactly what point in an episode the majority of listeners applauded or didn't. You can also discover the rating they assigned your episode. And finally, listeners can post comments and communicate with one another as though they are all listening live. You as the podcaster can review these comments any time you'd like. Real community is created as your listeners interact with you and with one another.
