Facebook has become an integral part of everyone’s lives due to the phenomenon called social networking. One can argue that the biggest thing to happen to social media and social networking is Facebook, and they would be right. Whats more is that the company has cemented its feet into the social scene further after the recent acquisitions of Instagram and WhatsApp, making it also one of the most rounded out platforms on the internet and a content creator’s paradise.
One of the most popular ways to interact with a larger audience on Facebook is through polls. People love choosing a side, and polls allow them to do just that. The outcome is that you get a majority answer for your opinion and you also get a lot of engagement in the process. Currently, there is no way to create a poll in a normal Facebook post. You can do so in a group or a page. But what if you do not own a group or page ?
Well, you can now start creating polls in your Facebook Story as well, and that is what we are going to talk about today.
In this article, we will show you how to create a poll on Facebook.

Step 6. Type in the two options you want to give your audience to choose from. You can either type in custom options or leave them as Yes and No.
Step 7. Once you are happy with the poll setup, tap on the ‘Next‘ button.
Step 8. You can now jazz up you poll with GIFs or colours.
Step 9. Tap on the ‘Share to Story‘ button to upload the poll to your Story.
Whoever sees your stories can now interact with your Story for 24 hours. This feature is very much similar to the one found on Instagram and its good to see Facebook integrating some of the crowd favourite features into its main platform to keep users engaged.
