Instagram’s direct message polls can be handy for all kinds of questionnaires and if you want to keep the answers to yourself, you can.
Gather info quietly
Now users don’t have to broadcast the info collected from Instagram Direct Message surveys, thanks to new poll sticker options.
The feature was rolled out a few weeks ago and many users are happy with the potential to keep their fact finding private.
Being able to pose questions within a close-knit community is the heart of Instagram’s drive to provide more intimate experiences, so a bit of discretion is smart.
To gain access to the new stealthier polling options, simply download the most recent version of Instagram.
The new poll works like any other, allowing users to choose between an enormous group of followers or just a few close friends.
More confidential polling could open up a world of possibility for marketers as well as regular users depending on their reaction to the feature’s popularity. Perhaps we may be looking at an online survey renaissance?
