I was interested to see this appear on Facebook this morning (only on the full web-accessible page, it wasn’t possible to access it from the iPhone app OR from the mobile site). The most obvious Facebook demographic are the “younger” voters, but any means by which we can remind people/each other of their right/responsibility to vote is useful. The counter is moving up quite fast, and it would be interesting to know how much difference such announcements on Facebook, and what other impact social media has had.

Having said I wasn’t going to stay up, I will now be coming into the University at midnight to talk about some of the uses and impacts of social media for WINOL, so looking forward to seeing some comments on this post as to how you have noticed any differences in engagement, voter swings, etc. in this first ‘social media’ election!
