Ever wanted to find out quickly what your followers on your Instagram think? Well, now you can get a quick feedback with Instagram’s Polling Sticker – available on Instagram Stories.

Today we’re introducing an interactive poll sticker in Instagram Stories that lets you ask a question and see results from your friends and followers as they vote. The sticker is customizable and lets you create your own question and customize your choices, making sharing stories more fun. Once someone has voted on your poll, they’ll see which choice is in the lead at any given moment. Poll creators can also check the results in real-time – and see exactly who voted for what.

Here’s how you can setup your poll:

  • After you’ve taken a photo or video for your story, select the “poll” sticker and place it anywhere you’d like — you can write out your own question and even customize the poll choices.
  • After you’ve shared your poll, your friends and followers can immediately start voting and see real-time results. Once someone has voted on your poll, they’ll see which choice is in the lead at any given moment.
  • To see your own poll results, swipe up to open the viewers list for that part of your story. Not only will you see how many votes each option received, but you’ll also see who voted and what option they chose.
