Instagram Polls


Instagram Polls TipsDo you use Instagram Stories? These are the posts that appear as a circle at the top of your Instagram feed (or on the right-hand side if you are using a desktop browser).

Stories last for 24 hours unless you save them to your profile.

You can create an Instagram Story by clicking the camera icon at the top of your screen or swipe left. Swipe right to get out!

Stories are great for day to day videos and photos that you don’t want to clutter up your profile. They also have higher visibility in some instances.


Now you can make your stories even more engaging by adding a Poll.

Create your story in the usual way.

Click the icon at the top of the screen (shown circled in blue)

Then click “Poll” from the options and customise your question and answer options. You only have 22 characters but you can add text to the image if you need more.

Centre the poll, then click “Done” and +YourStory circle.

Here’s one that I created using a slightly better background image.

Click on your story to see which option is winning. Don’t forget they only last 24 hours unless you save them.
