No one can deny the role of electronic media is playing in protests and democratic movements around the world. From the Green Revolution in Iran to the anti-Mubarak campaign in Egypt, social networking, Twitter and YouTube have been catalysts.

The Fight for Freedom: One Click to Revolution iPhone app (free) allows users to voice solidarity with those seeking democratic change in countries around the world, while also encouraging the United Nations and the United States to take a stand.

For the next two weeks, iPhone users can vote for which country needs international support, and what form that support should take. The votes will be tallied, and then organized into a priority list destined for the U.N. Human Rights Council and the White House.

Start by entering your name and email address, and then selecting a country. The options include Libya, Sudan, Tunisia, Jordan, Yemen, Iran, Syria and other. Once you’ve made your selection, you’re asked what type of actions the U.N. and U.S. should support, including non-violent protests, small military response, large military response and other.

After submitting your suggestion, you get a message that reads “Success! Thanks for changing the world!”

It might not seem like much, but if social networking and smart phone technology can inspire Libyans to strike back at Gaddafi, you too can use your iPhone for some good.
