Instagram Has Just Introduced Interactive Poll Stickers
Indecisive types rejoice - Instagram has added a new poll-based dimension to your social media interaction.
Launched today, Instagram Stories now lets you ask a question in the form of a two-option poll, and see results from your friends and followers as they vote (assuming they're good friends and care enough to do so...)
So, how do you do it?
- After you’ve snapped a photo or video for your story, select the “poll” sticker and place it anywhere you’d like — you can write out your own question and even customise the poll choices.
- After you’ve shared your poll, your friends and followers can immediately start voting and see real-time results. Once someone has voted on your poll, they’ll see which choice is in the lead at any given moment.
To see your own poll results, swipe up to open the viewers' list for that part of your story, et voila - you'll see how many votes each option received, who voted and what option they chose.
It's also a nifty little tool for influencer types, with such a built-in functionality enabling them to interact with their followers even more easily.
And if you're anything like us and suffer daily anxiety-ridden dilemmas about which shoes to put on before work, fortunately some social media based assistance is at hand. Just ask your followers.
