Fb voting


🙂 🙂 Facebook Voting Facebook is about to be used in voting in Election. The social networking site is the world’s second-most-visited website with some 900 million users [EPA] Voters in Washington state will be able to register to vote through the social networking website Facebook, the secretary of state’s office says. The state will have an application on its Facebook page that allows residents to register to vote and then “like” the application and recommend it to their friends, the state’s office said on Tuesday. The state, Facebook and Microsofthave been collaborating on the project since last year, and it is expected to launch next week. Once it is live, Facebook users will need to agree to let Facebook access their information, which will be used to prefill their name and date of birth in the voter registration form. Users will still need to provide a driver’s licence or state ID number to continue. Facebook would not collect details other than the voter’s name and date of birth, and would not have access to the voter database, the state said. “In this age of social media and more people going online for services, this is a natural way to introduce people to online registration and leverage the power of friends on Facebook to get more people registered,” Shane Hamlin, co-director of elections in Washington, said to Forbes magazine. mcn
