Shortstack polls and questions

Are you looking for more ways to interact and engage with your fans?

This allowed page owners to set which answers fans could select from.

When Facebook removed the questions feature, Facebook Pages lost a valuable tool to engage with their fans.

Pages had to resort to posting a status update and let fans add their own answers through Facebook comments.

This meant you could end up with a variety of different answers. to your question.

If you were looking for a specific one, this would skew your results.

Today we are going to teach you how to add back the ability to ask questions and run polls on your Facebook Page with the help of Shortstack.
