Polling Mefi for a Facebook Poll App
January 19, 2012 9:03 AM   Subscribe

What is the best way for a local business to post a promotional poll/survey on their Facebook profile page?

We are in Minnesota USA and run the Facebook profile page for a local business. We wish to post a poll/survey to the business's Facebook page to attract attention and customer feedback, but don't really know where to start in making this happen. I see there are several apps readily available when I search, but don't know how trustworthy they are. Can anyone provide guidance or point to a resource for this task?

Facebook Questions is probably what you're looking for. It's baked into FB, and not a separate app.

"What is Facebook Questions? How do I use it?
Facebook Questions lets you get recommendations, conduct polls and learn from your friends and other people on Facebook."

Yes, just use Facebook Questions

As to your FB EdgeRank, which determines how visible your content becomes, you're better off slowly doing a bunch of FB Questions than a big survey.

Oh, and if you really need to do a bunch of questions in one go, Wufoo forms is pretty plug and play and it will allow you to have the survey both inside and outside FB.
