    The Voting Process

    There always seems to be a lot of discussion about the voting process so why not devote a thread to it? I also just ran across this article so let the conspiracy theories begin.

    ‘American Idol’ Introduces Facebook Voting - Techland - TIME.com

    Picking up your landline phone and dialing in to vote for Clay Aiken on American Idol is so 2003, and texting 'VOTE' over and over for the sake of David Archuleta is so 2008. The latest way to vote for your favorite Idol? Via Facebook.

    Entertainment Weekly reports that 'American Idol' has finally decided to take advantage of social media by introducing Facebook voting. Sources tell EW that it will work like this: starting (most likely) during the March 1 show, users can visit a special Facebook page dedicated to voting to cast their ballot a maximum of 50 times during the voting period.

    Given that voting for your favorite idol will now be only a click away, this new method could give 'Idol' an even bigger ratings kick. And ex-Idol judge Simon Cowell seems to think Facebook voting is a good plan, too--it was leaked that he'll be using the same method when his new show, 'X Factor,' debuts this fall.

    But if you're one of the few who's not on Facebook, never fear--'Idol' fans can still vote old-school style, via toll-free number or text.

    All I say is: look out Facebookers! We old-school David Archuleta fans may be so "two thousand and late", but we're going to knock you on your butts when we send in our 2000 text messages.

    (I just activated my prepaid AT&T phone yesterday.)

    Since I recently joined Facebook this will be fun. Of course the phone will be at my elbow, just in case.

    They might as well do it with MySpace voting too since they just did the MySpace audition this year.
