What kinds of polls and surveys can I use on Facebook?

Use polls and surveys on Facebook just for fun, or employ them for business or research. Here are a few ways you can use the SurveyMonkey app:

  • Online Polls. Create an online poll to obtain instant feedback from your professional and social networks about anything.
  • Facebook Use. Find out how your customers, clients or other audiences use Facebook. Are they actively engaged, frequent visitors? Or are they occasional drop-ins? Do they use Facebook mainly to connect with friends and family, or are they members of other interest groups too?
  • Fun Surveys. Use fun surveys as a conversation starter with friends and family, or to drive engagement in your community or interest groups. People love to take quizzes that give them insight about themselves; use polls and quizzes to build community engagement and interest and leave members more receptive to your next idea, promotion or request.
  • Event Planning. Send a survey on Facebook to plan events, including date, time and location, as well as who’s bringing the guacamole and margaritas.
  • Market Research. Use your social and professional networks on Facebook to ask clients and customers for their opinions as you evaluate the market for potential new products and services.
  • Customer Satisfaction. Find out how your customers and clients feel about your products and services, or their experiences with your customer service representatives. Ask for their feedback using a link on your Facebook fan page.
  • Mobile Surveys. Reach your audience wherever they are by deploying a survey that can be accessed on a mobile device. Learn about your fans' and customers' mobile habits.
  • Academic Surveys. Conduct research for university research projects on Facebook, and ask your social network to share your survey with their networks so you can get answers faster.
  • Technology Surveys. Discover the technology needs and affinities of your customer and fan base. Are they PC or Mac users? Android or iPhone users? Solicit bug reports and product feedback directly from Facebook.
  • Travel and Hospitality Surveys. Is your business in the travel or hospitality industry? If so, you are probably already engaging with your clients on Facebook, so why not ask them for actionable feedback that might improve your customer retention?
