How to Use Poll in Instagram Stories

Most of you probably know how to add a poll to an Instagram story; if so, ignore this part and jump right to the example section. To add a poll to a story, using the Sticker tab in the higher right part of the screen, choose Poll. Then add your question and the related choices. As a default setting, a Yes and a No choice is considered for your poll. Please note that there is no limit to the size of the textual content of the question; however, answers must not be more than 22 characters. To see the choices made by the users, you can drag the story upward. After 24 hours, stories will be out of reach. So, if you want to increase this time span, you can add it to the Stories Highlight section. It is better to send the result of the poll as a story when it is all done.
