'American Idol': Cast your votes via Facebook

american-idol-facebook-voting.jpgIdol Fanatic has set up an online voting system for "American Idol" via Facebook.

The application gives Facebook users five votes at the start of each week that can be used at any time. Users can also earn more votes by inviting their Facebook friends to use the application.

Via Mashable, "The application uses Ribbit (a web-based phone service à la Google Voice) to dial in user votes during "American Idol's" allotted voting period."

Mashable also says regarding FOX approving its use, "When we inquired regarding concerns about the app being shut down, we were told that the application complies with voting guidelines and is 'on the up-and-up.'"
