Poll in facebook

How to make a poll on Facebook – Today I just realized a new button/menu titled “Question” on my Facebook (on the top of your Wall, where you can share your Status, Photo, Link, and Video). Apparently this update has been there for quite some time but I didn’t notice it even though it’s in front of my eyes (this is called Domestic Blindness)!

This new “Question” feature allows you to add or make a poll on Facebook, a nice and fun feature that some of us have been longing to have!

So how to make a poll in Facebook? Easy!

How to make a poll on Facebook

  1. Click on the Question link (where you normally post your status updates) to start making a poll on Facebook
  2. Click on the “Add Poll” option to add a nice poll into your question
  3. …come on, you can just do this by yourself, right? :)

Apparently, this “Question” feature is not limited to creating Polls and answers are not like the replies that you’ve been doing so far on people’s walls. To find out more, head off to Facebook Questions official page.

Now we can all have more fun in writing our personal status updates and have better value posts on our business’ Facebook fan page. It’s also easier and more productive to separate questions from your blabbering status updates! This is like having Yahoo Answers integrated into Facebook. Me Like.

    I wondered how all my friends were posting those polls. In true fashion though they are using them way too much and every other post on my newsfeed is a poll. :(

    This is actually a pretty great addition, especially for business FB pages, and a nice new avenue for product surveys and research.

      True. Since anyone on Facebook can join and fill the survey, it makes it more global and has a higher reach

    Now you’re not alone about this “domestic blindness” thing. I noticed that there are a lot of polls but I didn’t mind it that we too can make our own polls. Thanks for this info. Creating polls can be really fun.

    Thanks a lot for sharing this Michael!
    It was very funny to read your quick instructions and realize that I too have had that Questions button staring right at me alllll along…while at the same time wondering “I’d really like to get one of those polls going on my companies FB page, but how! :)

      Haha yeah, sometimes we are get used to what we do and miss the little new changes

    I looked for this addition, but I cannot seem to find it (My facebook is using Timeline right now).

    • http://www.organizedbysandy.com Sandy

      In Timeline, click: Event, Milestones + then there is a drop down where poll is listed.

      Hey is there a way to add more than ten options? Thanks

  • Christy

    Thank you!!! I had forgotten about this and how to do it! So simple, thanks for the directions.

  • http://www.athimannil.com/ Muhammed Athimannil

    there is no such option in my status :(

      This functionality is no longer available for Facebook users. Try this app instead : http://apps.facebook.com/my-polls

  • http://www.facebook.com/martel Pierre Olivier Martel

    Making polls with this app is no longer possible since Facebook has removed the functionnality as explained here : http://techcrunch.com/2012/10/19/facebook-questions-shut-down/

    As a developer, I made a similar app to create polls on Facebook. The basic version is free and you can try it here : http://apps.facebook.com/my-polls
