Follow these steps to create Facebook Polls

Facebook polls can’t be created or posted directly on your timeline and news feed. For it, a poll creator needs to use a Facebook story.

It enables poll creators to ask questions, customise the suggested answers, and then engage others in the friend list to vote for their preferred option. Follow these steps if you want to create a poll on Facebook.

How to create a Facebook poll 

  • Open Facebook on your phone and go to your profile page
  • Click on the “Add to the story”
  • Swipe left and find the “poll” button.
  • On clicking the “Poll” button, you will be asked to “Ask a question…” with Yes/No answers.
  • Tap on each to customise your question and answers.
  • Check everything and hit “Done.”

You will receive instant reactions on your poll whenever anyone from the friend list votes for that.
