Instagram recently rolled out a new feature which allows users to put a vote button on their Story. Followers can then vote on the poll, which made for a bit of comedy given that some folks thought the votes were anonymous like Twitter.
Several people took to social media panicking when they realized the polls weren’t anonymous, not about the privacy issues but because of the rude or vile way in which they responded to the poll. So we may never get the same candidness again — enjoy a few reactions from folks below and sound off in the comments with your thoughts.
So instagram added a new poll feature but u can literally see who votes what answer. I CAN NOW SEE ALL MY H8ERS.
