How to do a survey in a group?

The team working on the social network "Vkontakte" is not sitting idly. Every month the site is increasingly updated and overgrown with many new features. One of them is not only for entertainment purposes, but also useful. These are polls, thanks to which you can get public opinion on a particular issue. The owners of their groups and communities in Vkontakte especially often use this function. So, how to do a survey in a group?

Suppose you want to know the average age of the participants in your group, or in more detail about their interests. Or you can't decide which is better - the book or its screen version. The options are actually a lot.

First of all, decide on the topic of the survey and come up with all the answers for which the users will directly vote. Then there are 2 possible options, depending on the goal you need:

  • Go to the group you need and click "Attach". Then click "More ..." and select "Poll". Enter the chosen topic and the necessary answers in the lines.You can add lines as needed by clicking on the words "Add line". Voting can be made anomic by ticking the corresponding line. Then users will not be able to see who voted for what - only the number of voters will be visible. Click "Send", after which the survey will be placed on the wall of your group.
  • Use the "Create topic" button in the discussion menu. Further - exactly the same algorithm. "Attach" - "Poll" - fill in the fields - "Create a topic." In the topic that appears above there is a button "Poll Settings", where you can close it or delete it altogether.
