25 Funny Poll Questions to Ask your Instagram Followers
When Instagram came up with the stories feature in August 2016, it received a lot of backlash, with even ardent fans criticizing it for making it look like a poorly done clone of Snapchat.
But, then with time the feature has come into its own, with several quirks.
And, according to this report from TechCrunch, Snapchat slowed down by a whopping 82% after Instagram introduced stories.
And, the latest update from Instagram is Instagram polls – a feature that lets you ask a question to your followers and receive responses from them.
This new feature takes the popular photo-sharing social media app, further away from Snapchat’s mold.
How do Instagram Polls Work?
It’s quite simple. You click a pic or a video using Instagram Stories.
Then, you swipe up to pull up the sticker drawer. Choose the “poll” sticker from the list of stickers available. You can place it wherever you want on the image or video.
Then, you can type in any question, you want to ask your friends and followers.
Along with the question, you specify the answers you want them to choose from.
Once you publish the poll, anyone of your Instagram followers who checks out your story, will be able to vote in their answer. You can see the real-time results.
And, if your voters are interested in knowing the result of the poll, all they have to do is click on your story a second time (third, fourth or more) and they can see the latest tallies.
Your poll participants will not be able to see the names of others who have taken part in the poll, but you can.
When you watch your story again, you can see which poll answer got the most votes.
And, by swiping up, you can see the analytics for the poll like how many of your followers viewed your poll and which of your Instagram followers voted for which answer.
And, the best part – all of this disappears within 24 hours, just like your Insta stories.
