Voting from Facebook

Posted by Evan Mackinder on February 9, 2010

Pepsi launched a new Refresh Project voting app for Facebook users yesterday.  The new app allows anyone with an account to vote for and promote their favorite ‘ideas’ directly from within the popular social networking platform.

Participants in the Pepsi Refresh Project  can already use their Facebook accounts to log-in and cast votes, but they have to do so remotely by visiting the Pepsi Refresh website and using Facebook Connect.  It’s a bit cumbersome, and some users might be hesitant to log-in to their Facebook page via Pepsi’s third-party set-up.

With this new app, Facebook users can vote for their favorite idea and share the results with their friends–all from the comfort of their own pages.  The app allows you to choose your favorite ‘idea’, and remembers your choice so you can find it with ease every day.  After you cast your vote, the app gives you the option to share the result on your wall.

Here’s 4 easy steps to get you started:

1. Log-on to Facebook

2.  Vist the app homepage and click ‘allow’. (Make sure you read the fine print below, to be sure you know what installing the app means for your privacy.)

3. Enter in the cause of your choice in the form of it’s contest url – e.g. www.refresheverything.com/servenext

4. Vote–and share it with your friends!
