Vote American Idol via FacebookSocial media has played an even better role than conventional media -- remember how Facebook and Twitter were used to support the ouster of former Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak? Social media seems to be important in entertainment, as well. American Idol, a reality television show for solo singing talent, is on its way to allow voting via Facebook, with each voter having ballots up to 50 times, as long as they vote during the broadcast.

Indonesian Idol, I guess, will also soon apply this voting method in the next season.

This new method of voting won ’t replace the traditional toll-free telephone call or text message, but for Facebook users, it certainly sounds a lot easier than dealing with the plague of busy signals or spam texts we ’ve experienced when using the other two voting methods on American Idol.
