Have you used the poll feature on Instagram?


It's a fun tactic businesses can use to connect with their followers.


Here are 3 ways brands are using Polls to drive social media engagement:

Plus, their responses are recorded for all to see.

Our example:



Yes or No?


This is the most obvious and classic way to use polls.


Simply ask, "yes" or "no."
