Just for Fun: Surveys, Polls, & Quizzes

Get answers to those burning questions

Create a Survey Today

Sometimes you just need to satisfy your curiosity.

We can help with that. Send out an online survey to get quick answers to the ‘burning’ questions that make the world go round.

1. Stay up to date on current events. What’s your news IQ? Does your social circle know what’s going on in their town/city, county and around the globe? Find out what your friends think about contentious topics and the week’s current events. Send out a quiz or a fun political survey to gauge political leanings or to find out where your friends stand with regard to the hottest issues.

2. Present-day pop culture. Who’s the “It Girl” or breakout film star of the year? Which famous celebrity just got arrested? Got married? Had a baby? Re-married? Was elected? Which reality show star is now earning a fortune as a television host extraordinaire? Pop surveys to the rescue! Poll your colleagues, family and friends to find out who reigns supreme in terms of pop culture knowledge.

3. Game night. Use an online poll or survey to collect trivia questions for game night. If trivia is not your thing, you can also ask your survey respondents to submit game ideas, sporting activities and other competitive events. Sort out venues, attendees, car-sharing, food, drinks and more.

4. ‘Just because’ event planning. Use surveys to plan that lunar eclipse party, whisky Wednesday, game show night, Friday night movie marathon and loads of ‘just because’ fun events. Get your party started and send out an event planning survey today.

5. Love surveys. (S)he loves me, (s)he loves me not. Give your friends a break from the spreadsheets and the inbox by getting them to take your love survey. From love at first sight or unique first dates to the first kiss or a current crush, quiz them to uncover interesting titbits.

6. About me surveys. Think back to every meet-and-greet you’ve attended where you’re asked to share ‘one interesting thing about yourself’. Collect fun facts from attendees the next time you decide to plan a party or conference and use these factoids as icebreakers or as a creative place setting for a dinner party.

7. The make-over: home edition. Get ideas from friends and family about a renovation or redecoration project you’ve been thinking about. Maybe you’d like to give your front garden a make-over. Get landscaping ideas, hints and tips. Get feedback and recommendations about contractors, materials, checklists and everything you need to make your projects a success.

8. Holiday destination survey. Destination: Italy? Thailand? Bora Bora? When you’re not quite sure where you want to go for your next holiday, try polling your friends to get suggestions. They could offer an insight into where to stay, where to eat, what to do and the top must-see attractions. Publish your survey to Facebook and let the ideas flow in.

9. Draws. Whether it’s football, rugby or any other competitive sport for that matter, you can use a survey to build your own draw. Round up the family, colleagues and friends, then support, cheer on and track teams. You can even organise your match-day celebrations with an event-planning survey. Go, fight, win!

All work and no play makes for a very dull day. Get the fun answers you need with SurveyMonkey survey templates. Online polls, surveys and online questionnaires make it easy to get the party started.
