News__ Facebook: Today is Election Day

November 02, 2010 | By

For those of you that have already signed into your Facebook account this morning (probably everyone reading this right now) you may have noticed the Election Day message on the top of your news feed. It's Midterm Elections in the US and voters will be electing the House of Representatives, senators and governors. Facebook has started showing an "election day message to all users who are accessing Facebook from a country that is currently in an election period." There's also an interactive map that you can click on to find out where to vote. Cool. Not only is this a reminder to vote, because we know how easy it is to forget things like electing your leaders, but this is also a way to encourage more of it. This message goes out to all the haters that say Social Networking doesn't do anything good for us! Holla!
