LinkedIn members can now add polls to their posts and choose to ask the opinion of their connections, groups, or the whole network.
Polls have finally arrived on LinkedIn. On Tuesday, Howie Fung, Senior product manager, announced the new polling feature in a blog post:
“Your professional network can be a great asset when it comes to gleaning insights or getting a second opinion. Whether you’re debating which business tool you should invest in, curious about which LinkedIn Learning course professionals in your field find useful, or deciding which interview question to ask a prospective team member, getting input from your network can give you the confidence to pull the trigger or pursue another direction.”

Polls are a great addition to the platform as they highlight the possibility to tap the insights and opinions of your professional connections and communities across LinkedIn.
Creating a poll on LinkedIn is very easy. We’ve included instructions in this post.
“By targeting specific groups with your poll, you can get even more relevant insights,” Fung explained. “For example, if you are in a group for marketers, you could ask about the group member’s favorite tool for email marketing management.”
You can track your poll’s activity to see how many members have responded, what are the results for each option and how much time is left before your poll is closed.
