Story Poll is a new Instagram feature that will help you get input from your followers in no time at all. By now, you have probably seen a lot of them in your Instagram feed. If you want to try creating one yourself, here’s how.

How to Create Polls on Instagram

When you start creating your Insta-Story, you will see a happy face icon at the top of your screen. This is where you start.

Once you click it you’ll be able to start creating your own little survey by selecting the Poll option towards the middle of your screen.

After that, it’s up to you what kind of poll you want to create. It could be a simple yes or no question, or you could ask questions that are more complicated, like favorite movies, for example. You can customize the poll however you want.

Once your poll is live, your followers can instantly start interacting with them. Live stats are available by swiping up on your poll.

The poll will disappear in 24 hours, just like any other Insta-Story, and it doesn’t matter how many followers you have. These can be useful for regular users and for brands as well. Polls allow big brands to ask their audience what they think of a new product, what changes they’d make to it, and ask for constructive feedback… The possibilities are endless. You just need to get creative!
