When you create a poll on Facebook, we give you tools to invite your friends and publish the poll on a page you manage. But sometimes that’s not enough and you need to reach a larger audience with a Facebook promoted post.
Would you like to know how men aged from 30 to 39 answered your poll? Export only the completed forms to Excel? Or draw a prize amongst participants who got all the right answers to your quiz? It's now possible with Search Filters.
Up until now, you could export participants data to Excel but there was no easy way to export results and statistics. We are happy to announce it is now possible to print or do a PDF export of your results and stats for any poll.
We added a new question type for ranking options. Participants can either use the dropdowns or drag and drop the options to order them. Here's an embedded example of it:
One of Polls for Facebook most important feature is the ability to export all answers and participants data to Excel. With Excel, you have the freedom to analyze and crunch polls data the way you like. We improved the export in a few different ways:

In May we launched Timeline Polls, a tool to make quick polls directly from a Page post where participants vote using hashtags. You sent us a lot of feedback and some told us their audience was not tech-savvy enough to understand hashtags.
We are pleased to announce you can now make polls directly from your Facebook Page Timeline. You simply ask a question using hashtags to enumerate the different options. Followers vote by commenting the post with one of the suggested hashtag. The application parses the post comments once every hour and compiles all the answers. You can view the charted results, pick a random winner and export it all to Excel like in a regular form poll.
We are hard at work to launch features you requested and you might have notice two new advanced options in the Configuration section of your polls.
By default, participants answering your polls on Facebook are asked to authorize the application. It can be problematic since around 20% of partcipants drop the poll without granting the authorization. Even though the application only asks access to users public infos (name and gender), we live in a era where we value our privacy and sometimes are reluctant to give access to personal data to applications we don't trust.
