In a feature straight out of Black Mirror, Instagram has recently added interactive poll stickers to Instagram Stories, so you can see how your followers, oh, I’m sorry, friends, control your life in real time.
Say, you wanted to pick out an outfit to wear on a date, because you can’t make a decision for your fucking self. Just take a picture of your choices and add a poll sticker to the image. Simple as that.
But, because we live in a world where we’re so used to hiding behind a computer or mobile phone screen, people haven’t realized that the polls weren’t anonymous, and users can see exactly who voted for each choice.
One EXTREMELY CRUCIAL thing to know about Instagram's new poll feature.
Votes are NOT ANONYMOUS. pic.twitter.com/f8u9kQOb9w

P.S.A, if you answer a poll on Instagram the user can see what you voted for.
