Once the user votes, the poll shows how many votes each American Idol finalist has received as well as a banner promoting that the user show off their favorite Idol and get their friends to vote:
Clicking on the Facebook / MySpace / embed icons on the banner takes you to your social network to install a profile badge. The first step here is a new "targeted invite" feature that finds your friends that are already interested in American Idol, which people are much more likely to invoke:
A native social network widget is then added to your profile. Such profile badges can also include fresh video clips that can be monetized with pre-roll ads:
There is of course to obligatory "narrow" view so that Facebook users can add the widget to their highly visible wall/profile tab:

iWidgets' social polling is a great way to add a fun, seamlessly integrated widget to your website that engages your users to add your content to their social profiles and gets their friends to visit your website.
