A new collaboration between CNN and Facebook is set to make voting more social. The two are creating an application named “I’m Voting” that will enable Facebook users to endorse specific candidates and issues. Users can commit to voting for a candidate and then have this information displayed on their timeline and news feed. CNN hosts are expected to use the app as a “second screen” and poll users on issues real time. While the app does not allow users to actually vote, it is a new way to track voters’ sentiments and create awareness. Do you think social media will play a role in your decision process this November?
