How to ask questions on Instagram
Instagram allows us two main options when asking questions in our stories. The first is a straight forward question. We can type in a question and when we post it, followers are able to reply with their answer. For a poll, we give two options and ask our followers to choose. It is a great way to find out more about our social media community, solve problems and simply have fun.
We focus on Instagram polls in this article, but we also share some help about Instagram questions at the end. If you still do not know how to create a poll/survey for you Instagram Story, take a look at our step by step guide:
- Open the Instagram app and click on the camera icon in the upper left corner of the screen.
- Take a photo or video of what you want to be the background of your survey.
- Once you have the picture, swipe up. Click on the stickers icon and choose the 'POLL' option.
- Enter the question for your poll using the text tool.
- Edit in your two possible answers.
- To drag the survey, place it or increase/decrease its size, just click on it and drag it over the photo.
