Political endorsements aren't just for newspapers anymore.

Facebook is letting you explain your picks for political office by publishing your own endorsements of political figures. And if the candidate likes your post, they can feature it on a new endorsements tab on their page.

To endorse a politician, go their page, select endorse and write your endorsement. See Facebook's full instructions here.
