We’ve just launched a whole new type of app; unlike any of our other available tools, while also drawing from features of both our Posts tool and our Polls offer app. The Poll Post app allows you to create a live poll that will be entirely hosted and run on your Facebook Business Page’s Timeline. This blog post aims to help you understand how to get started creating your very first Poll Post.
You know how Facebook used to allow you to post polls directly to your Business Page’s Timeline? Ever wonder what happened to that feature? We did; so we created our own tool for it, which we’re calling Poll Posts. This new tool allows you to run a poll via an image posted on your Timeline, where votes will be counted based on comments posted with specified hashtags. It’s simple to set up, provides an easy way for users to interact with your Page(s) in a fun and informative way.
Facebook has changed their policy on incentivizing people to like your page. In the past, you were allowed to require that people must Like your page in order to receive some incentive such as entering a promotion, obtaining a coupon, or viewing content. Beginning November 5th, 2014 Facebook policy now prohibits incentivizing for people Liking you page.
