Never make your own decisions! A new Instagram feature allows friends to choose for you

Good grief. Who has time for this kind of nonsense? Just pick a donut already!

From Yahoo: You’ll soon be able to poll all of your friends on social media, all thanks to Instagram’s newest interactive feature. As of Oct. 3, Instagram Stories will let you ask a question to your followers and you’ll be able to see the results in real-time as they vote. The possibilities are endless: Should I have pizza or a kale salad for dinner? Which shoes look better with my outfit? Is 8:30 p.m. an acceptable bedtime? Never make your own decisions again!

The new poll stickers allows users to add two-option questions to their stories and people who view the story can choose an answer by tapping one of the options, according to a statement released by Instagram.

After you’ve already taken a photo or video for your story, simply select the “poll” sticker, write out your own question, and customize poll answers. Followers can immediately start voting and you’ll be able to see results in real-time. Like all Instagram Stories, polls and results will disappear after 24 hours.

Included in the newest Instagram update are also two new tools: a “color picker” for text and brushes, and an alignment tool for text and stickers.

  5. Isn’t anyone working and/or studying? In high school I had part-time jobs
    and three hours of homework daily in a rigorous college prep curriculum.
    Many schools now insist NO ONE have a best friend and instead
    should relate a little bit to everyone. Sounds like communism
    behavior control to me. All the better to keep track of the

    • Slowly?? How did Instagram get the Government to relinquish THEIR right to make our decisions for us? They’ve been doing that for years,and Americans have been LETTING them.

    Sounds like a down right liberalish idea. This way you don’t have to always blame the Repub’s – you can blame the fish you caught on the web.

    Why they can even sue the web.



  8. Hmm.

    Where have we seen this before?
