People are Realizing Instagram Polls Aren’t Anonymous and They’re Freaking Out


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.

Instagram just wants to watch the world burn…
