Instagram Adds Polls in Stories, New Creative Tools
Instagram’s adding a new method for conducting polls, with a sticker option that lets you pose a question within your Instagram Story and see the results from your followers as they participate.
Polls have proven a popular option on other platforms – Twitter introduced their native polls tool back in 2015, while on Facebook, you can create polls in Groups, events pages and on Messenger.
But more relevant for Facebook might be the recent use of polls within Facebook Live streams. As you’ve no doubt seen, many Pages have been creating polls in streams which use Reactions as a voting mechanism – something Facebook advises against.
