Making polls on Facebook from a computer

Do you want to find out how to make polls on Facebook from your computer? So, to start with, start the web browser you usually use to surf the net, type www.facebook.com in the address bar, press the key Submit on the keyboard and log in to your account on the social network by filling in the fields with your data Email or phone e Password and then clicking on the button Log in.



Once logged in, type the name of the group you belong to and for which you intend to create the survey in the search bar located at the top and select the corresponding result from the relevant ones that are proposed to you. Alternatively, click on the item Groups in the left sidebar of the social network, select the tab Groups which is placed at the top and then click on the name of the group in relation to which you intend to go to act.

Once the main page of the group is displayed, locate the box with it written on it Write something… (the one you usually use to write your posts) and click on the entry Create survey present at the top.

Fill in the section now Ask something ... typing the question you intend to ask the other members of the group then click on the link Add response options present at the bottom and type in all the answer options you wish to make available, one for each line written Add an option ....

To finish, click Survey options and, based on your preferences and needs, leave or remove the check mark from the options Allow anyone to add options (to allow group members wishing to participate in the survey to provide more than one answer) and / or Let people choose more options (to allow users who are members of the group to add additional response options to the survey) then click on the button Public.



Once this is done, your survey will be published on the group and other users will be able to participate in it simply by clicking on the answer they consider most suitable. For each user who participated in the survey, you will see theirs appear profile picture in correspondence with the answer he provided.

You have completed all the procedure just seen together through which to do surveys on Facebook but now you have second thoughts and would like to know how to delete your post? I'll explain it to you right away, it's very easy. To begin with, locate the post related to the survey and then click on freccia rivolta verse il basso that you find on its right and then click on the item Delete post attached to the menu that is shown to you. In the box that will now open on the screen, click on the button Delete and the game is done.

Take polls on Facebook from smartphones and tablets

Do you prefer to act as a smartphone and tablet and would you therefore like to understand how to conduct surveys on Facebook from mobile? First of all, access the screen of your device where all the apps are grouped, press the Facebook icon and wait for the main application screen to be visible.

Now, type the name of the group on which you intend to create a survey in the search bar located at the top and tap on the corresponding result among those that are shown to you. Alternatively, press the icon with the three lines horizontally that you find on the right, tap on Groups and then presses on the name of the group attached to the menu that is shown to you.


Once the group screen is displayed, locate the box with it written on it Write something… (the one you generally use to write your posts), presses the button with the three dots side place and choose the item Create a survey (your iOS) or Create group survey (on Android) from the menu you see.


Now fill in the section Ask something ... by typing the question you intend to ask the other members of the group then tap on Add an option to the survey ... below and type the first answer option you want to make available. Repeat this step for each answer option you intend to add.

Finally, tap on gear wheel and, based on your preferences and needs, leave or remove the check mark from the options Allow anyone to add options (to allow group members wishing to participate in the survey to provide more than one answer) and / or Let people choose more options (to allow group members to add additional survey response options) then click on the link Public located at the top right.

After carrying out these steps, your survey will be published on the group and other users will be able to participate by clicking on the box corresponding to the answer they consider most appropriate. For each user who participated in the survey, you will see theirs appear profile picture in correspondence with the answer he provided.


Have you thought about it and want to delete the survey previously created? Then locate the relevant post, press on freccia rivolta verse il basso that you find on its right, tap on the item Delete attached to the menu that is shown to you and, finally, choose the option Delete post.

Please note: If you are using an iPad, to do surveys on Facebook as just seen you will have to resort to the use of the official app Facebook Groups. The option, in fact, has not yet been implemented in the iPad variant of the social network's basic app.

Other solutions for making surveys on Facebook

What I have explained to you in the previous lines is the official system made available by the social network itself to carry out surveys on Facebook. It is a fairly comfortable and effective system and able to satisfy the most disparate needs. However, if you are looking for a different solution or if you want to do surveys on Facebook not only through the groups you are a member of but also through your profile or your fanpage, you can contact SurveyMonkey.


This is an online service that has a free plan, but with a limit of 100 responses per survey. If this is not enough, there are also several paid plans available to users that can meet the most diverse needs.

Alternatively, read my guide on how to create online surveys through which I have explained to you how to create surveys using Google Docs and the online service 99Pools. Of course, the function for taking surveys is undoubtedly much more convenient when attached directly to the social network, but the solutions in question can certainly come in handy. Please, give it at least a look.
