Facebook is today beginning a wide rollout for a new status update polling feature on iOS, Android, and the web (via The Next Web). There is only room for two response options on Facebook (Twitter has four available), but Facebook's new feature also lets you add in GIFs or pictures as options, which you can caption.

my fifth facebook poll
Facebook previously supported polls in brand pages, so the new rollout is the first time a wide group of personal users can poll their friends and family on Facebook. Some brand pages -- including movies -- had the chance to test the GIF-based polls earlier this year.

Twitter first introduced polls to its users back in 2015, and Facebook just added polls to Instagram Stories one month ago. It appears that Facebook's new version is rolling out on the web first, and should be appearing on iOS and Android devices soon.

I find Facebook extremely annoying. Ads, autoplaying videos, "funny pics" and now useless GIF polls. But no news about my friends who are the reason why I joined facebook in the first way.

Reading the word Excited and clicking excited is not enough now. I wonder how we'll vote in USA based elections in 100 years.
