The feature allows users to post an endorsement on their profile page and add a blurb about the endorsement. Once you select an endorsement, Facebook will post it onto your friends' news feeds. It could also appear on the candidate's Facebook page.

Here's how it works:

  • Select the Endorsement tab on the political figure's Facebook Page
  • Select Endorse
  • Choose the audience you want to see your endorsement post
  • Write something to go along with your post
  • Select Post

Not everyone is ecstatic about Facebook getting into the endorsement game.
