Instagram's new "emoji slider" is a fresh take on polls

Instagram's new

The new Emoji Sliders are a great way to engage your friends on Instagram by letting them "vote" using a sliding scale instead of a YES/NO type question.

Instagram has added a new way to poll something among your followers.

Emoji sliders can be added to stories just like any other sticker.

The emoji in the slider will change as it moves up and down the scale - such as a blank face emoji to a face with heart eyes. There you'll see everything you need to get the best answer for your question. Place it where you want, add a question, and choose almost any emoji you'd like to use. As a follower, all you have to do is click and drag the emoji to the proper level, and your answer will be locked in when you release. And just like your story, your poll and its results will disappear after 24 hours. And you can view a tally that shows the average location they chose on the slider as well as where each individual friend positioned it.

You'll also see two new tools to help make your stories even more creative: a color picker for text and brushes and an alignment tool for text and stickers.

According to Instagram, the new sticker is rolling out to both iOS and Android users now.
