Foursquare seems to lead the pack with the best app. Facebook is the obvious leader when it comes to interaction with others, being the page that everyone goes to discuss topics after every debate or news conference, to the point where it can get old.

Thanks to Foursquare and Google, social media is encouraging people to vote and making it easier.
