If you’ve ever wanted to ask your Facebook friends really important questions, like “should I have chicken nuggets, or actually cook adult food for dinner?” now you can in poll form.

Facebook has rolled out a GIF-supported poll feature that allows users to post votable questions as a new status on both the web and iOS and Android apps. You will also be able to add GIFs and photos as responses, too, instead of just plain old boring text.

To create one, just hit compose post, or click on the “what’s on your mind” section. Below the text box will be a button that says “Poll,” as well as other options. Then you can type in your question in the text box with two options for answers. There’s no limit to how long your question can be, but your responses are limited to 25 characters.

Roku streaming may soon be available on many more devices

  Roku streaming may soon be available on many more devices Roku is still synonymous with its media devices, but you may have to shake that notion before long. Variety tipsters claim that Roku is planning a first move into streaming video on third-party hardware.

The move follows Instagram which added polling stickers to its Stories feature just last month. Twitter also has a polling feature, but allows for up to four response options, instead of Facebook’s two.

Facebook has experimented with polls in the past: the feature perviously existed as far back as 2007 for advertisers and marketers, and was available in Groups and Events for polling members / attendees. Like the latter version of the poll feature, today’s GIF-supported polls are not anonymous; your answers will be recorded and displayed for the poster to see, just like on Instagram.
