Facebook to Roll Out 'Candidate Connect' Feature for Lok Sabha Elections

Facebook is all set to roll out a new feature known as 'Candidate Connect'. Through this feature, Lok Sabha Candidates will be able to record their poll promises in 20-second videos.

With this feature, Facebook will pose a set of around four questions to the candidates and they will be allowed to post 20-second videos in response to each query. This will be based on research so that people can directly hear views of candidates in their constituencies.

Reminders will also be sent to people on polling dates in their constituencies under the 'Share You Voted' tag. This feature is said to be a visual guide for voters.
