Well, we’re happy to announce that “questions” are back!

Facebook seems to be entering a period of nostalgia, looking back at the good stuff it used to do and bringing back better versions of some cool features it had removed in the past.

Yesterday it was a revamped version of Notes, today Facebook is reintroducing “questions”, except that they are now called “Polls.”

Polls have always been a great way to engage an audience, by asking them to choose between multiple answers to a simple question. They provide rare insight and are rather entertaining for users, essentially because they provide immediate feedback on what others have been answering.

Facebook must have realised that they were a good addition to the whole brand experience on its platform and “Polls” are now back!

UPDATE: Facebook removed the ‘Polls’ feature just days after reintroducing it.

As you can see, Polls are easy to embed on other websites as well, just like regular posts. And they remain fully functional too, as people can choose their answer, like, comment or share on the embedded post.

Note: it seems that “Polls” don’t always appear on mobile.

I personally think this is great news for publishers. Polls are an effective means to get readers more involved in the stories they read, and an even better way to get them to share what they read with their friends.
