New Instagram Poll Options

New Instagram Poll options offer marketers and influencers alike more flexibility when using the Poll sticker.

If you spend as much time as I do on social media, you get used to noticing things that seem a little … off, and that’s why I was pretty quick to see a new update to Instagram’s Poll sticker a few days ago.

Social Media Today picked up what I was putting down before diving a little bit deeper into the new update from the team over at Instagram. Quickly becoming a hot topic on Twitter, Matt Navarra was quick to hit that retweet button, too.

While the Poll sticker has always been a handy tool for market research, engagement, and even just a little bit of fun, this new update offers so much more freedom and flexibility. Finally, we can add more than three options.

Previously being limited to two responses always felt limited, making it difficult to nail down that ambiguous grey area between two previously limited options.

While the ability to add more options to Polls may seem like a relatively minor update in the vast world of Instagram, any fresh updates are always a welcome sight in my eyes. Is this minor update a sign of bigger things to come from Instagram? We will have to wait and see what the social media giant has in store. However, I’ll certainly be keeping an eye out for any changes over the next few weeks to see if anything else exciting drops on the platform.

Has the new update rolled out for you yet? Let me know in the comments below. Australia always seems to be a bit of a testing ground for new social media features, so I’d love to hear if this is the case once again.
