Instagram will not cease to bring other social media apps down with their new features. First Zuckerberg put Snapchat on their toes by introducing Insta-story with lovely stickers, real date and time as you make the stories. Only recently did they introduce the Acorn stickers and now, they have gone further in making people more decisive by introducing the votes!
Cool innit? I find this very useful for brands who depend on Instagram to find out what their clients perceive about a product or service rendered. It can also help in relating more with your clients or carry out surveys to help you determine the outcome of a product.
It’s quite easy to use these features if you follow these simple steps!
The new poll stickers allow users to add two-option questions to their stories and people who view the story can choose an answer by tapping one of the options, according to a statement released by Instagram.
After you’ve already taken a photo or video for your story, simply select the “poll” sticker, write out your own question, and customize poll answers. Followers can immediately start voting and you’ll be able to see results in real-time. Like all Instagram Stories, polls and results will disappear after 24 hours.
