Facebook looks set to deliver versions of its ‘I’m a Voter’ feature around the world, and this is about to happen right before a number of high-profile elections happen. Apart from that, the social network giant is also working on rolling out versions of its ‘I’m a Voter‘ election feature that will target a global audience. This particular feature will enable users to broadcast to the world that they have in fact, voted in an election before, and was made use by over nine million Americans during the November 2012 presidential election.
This particular feature also made an appearance in the world’s largest democracy, which is India, as the country voted to pick a new prime minister, Narendra Modi, over recent weeks. There were more than 4 million Indian voters who made use of the “I’m a Voter” button throughout the country’s parliamentary elections.
Facebook sees this as yet another effort that they could do in order to integrate their services into the everyday life of people worldwide, as Facebook hopes to increase the overall number of its users, especially where emerging markets are concerned. Expect to see the ‘I’m a Voter’ button to appear for voters in the European Parliament and Colombian elections, as well as for citizens in South Korea, Indonesia, Sweden, Scotland, New Zealand, and Brazil in the later part of this year.
