How to Create a Poll on Facebook

-

|

This Itechguide teaches you how to create a poll on Facebook. You can create a poll on Facebook from a Facebook page or a Group – but not from your personal profile.

This guide offers steps to create a poll on Facebook from a PC or the mobile Apps. However, there is no option to create poll for a Page from the mobile Apps.

Finally, before we dive into it, because of the considerable difference between the steps to create a poll from the Android and the iPhone Apps, I have a different section for each.

1
How to Create a Poll on Facebook Page from a PC or Mac

This section has two sub-sections – 1. steps to create a poll for a Page – 2. steps to create a poll for a Group.

How to Create a Poll on Facebook Page

  • Open Facebook.com from your PC and login with your Facebook account.
  • Then, on the top right of your Facebook News Feed, click the drop-down arrow and select Manage Pages.
When you click the arrow you could also select the Facebook Page from the Your Pages list.

  • When the page opens, scroll down to Write a post. Then, beneath Write a post box, click the 3 dots and select Poll.
  • When Facebook poll opens, type a question. Then add your answers.
Facebook Page poll only supports 2 answers. As you would see later in this Itechguide, Facebook Group poll allows you to add more answers.

  • By default your poll will expire in 1 Week but you can modify this. To change when your poll expires, click the 1 week drop-down. Then select one of the options. If you do not want the poll to expire, select Never. You may also add your own expiry time by clicking Custom.

  • If you want to post the poll immediately click Share Now. Alternatively, you may schedule it to go live on a later date, backdate it or even save as draft. To do any of these, click Share Now drop-down. Then make your selection and complete the steps based on the selection you made.

How to Create a Poll on Facebook Group

  • Open Facebook.com from your PC and login with your Facebook account.
  • Then, on the top right of your Facebook News Feed, click the drop-down arrow and select Manage Groups.

  • Finally, when the group opens, beneath Write something…click the 3 dots. Then select Poll.
You may need to scroll down a bit before you locate the Write something box.

  • When the Poll options opens, click on the Ask something… field.
  • The Poll will now be displayed as a pop up. On the pop up, type the question you want to ask, then include your options.
By default, the Poll on Facebook group includes 3 options. Unlike creating a Poll on a Facebook Page, you can add more options.
  • When you finish adding the details of your Poll, you could either post it straightaway or schedule it for another date. To schedule the Poll, click the clock icon beside the group name.
  • Finally, select a date and time you want the Poll to go live. Then click Schedule.

  • Finally, when the Poll details opens, on the Ask a question form, enter the question you want to ask in the poll. Then add the options for your poll respondents. To add more options, click Add Options. You could also tap the gear beside Add Options to modify the options available to the respondents.
  • When you finish, on the top right of the app, click POST. If you want to post on a different date, tap the Schedule drop-down and select the time and date to post.

  • When the poll details opens, add a question. Then add your options. To add an option, tap Add a poll option…To add additional option, tap Done.
  • You could modify the options available to the respondents by tapping the gear beside Add a poll option.
