The step by step guide to creating a poll on Facebook
When it comes to social media, the first name that comes to mind is Facebook. In a market that was dominated by the likes of High5 and Orkut, Facebook came in hot and absolutely blew them out of the water, and today, it is not only the biggest social network in the world but, combined with Instagram and Whatsapp, owns the largest share of the social media market.
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 1. Sign in to the Facebook app on your smartphone.
Step 2. Click on the ‘Create a Story’ button on the home page of the Facebook app.
Step 3. In the Create Story options, tap on the ‘Poll’ option.
Step 4. Now type in the Question you want to ask your audience.
Step 5. 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 6. Once you are happy with the poll setup, tap on the ‘Next button.
Step 7. You can now jazz up your poll with GIFs or colors.
Step 8. 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 it’s good to see Facebook integrating some of the crowd’s favorite features into its main platform to keep users engaged.
