Facebook plans to launch an "I'm voting" app that allows users to share their vote with friends. The social networking site announced Monday, the upcoming application will allow users to endorse candidates and advocate issues as part of their social profile, with information shared in real time with friends. There's no release date as of yet, but the site says they will also be partnering with CNN to gain real-time opinion data from voters. CNN will ask app users questions and report answers on air.
