Best Practices for Creating a Facebook Poll:

1)  Focus on your audience – select a poll question that will interest your voters. Think about topics they care about or are curious to discover what other people think about

2) Keep it short – keep the question and answers simple and short. The faster it is to comprehend your poll that more responses you will get

3) Add visuals – Adding images is a great way to engage and attract voters. A good image can dramatically increase participation rates

4) Make the answers distinct – verify that there isn’t an overlap between answers, so that it is easy to answer

5) Answers should cover all options – verify that the user will have an option to select, if you can’t cover all possible answers then add an other option to the poll
