Facebook encourage users to vote
Today is a hard day, making a decision that will change the fate of the Country is a huge responsibility and when looking at social newsfeeds neither candidate seems to impress many.
The minority within newsfeed are dead fast in their convictions of who they believe should be president going forward, sharing their views and opinions, some even bashing the other candidate. The debates have clogged up many newsfeeds having a lot of people wanting this election over with so they do not have to read a constant stream of political views or articles.
Facebook has even gotten in on the action by encouraging its users to vote. Adding a box at the top of its newsfeed with a button to proclaim that they are voting as well as a link so you can find your local voting poll easily, uniting people on voting regardless of who you would rather see in the White House. Faces of friends who click the voting button will appear at the top (mine are blacked out for their privacy).
Today is Election Day my fellow Americans; it is a day of unity to make a decision on the leader of our country and of the last influential country in the world, our choices today will not only affect us, but many and we need to keep that in mind when going to the polls today.
No, today sure is not an easy day – yet it is one we have awaited for, and one that could change many things. It is echoing with many promises we are eager to see live or could be potentially disappointed in our decision making, either way we have to choose.
Facebook is only yet another reminder that regardless of our differences together we stand united making a choice that will be the first step of our unforeseeable future.
