Voting the Facebook way

Voting on Facebook

Via my Facebook newsfeed I noticed that Euan Semple had installed an App called UK Politics that allows anyone with a Facebook account to vote for a number of political parties.

Of course it is flawed, unfair and unrepresentative… but it does demonstrate how easily people can “do” politics from the bottom-up…. and (of course) you can change your vote as often as you like – which is one of the most powerful aspects of internet voting.

Anthony Eskinazi the developer of the UK Politics App also set up Parkatmyhouse.com. One to watch.
