We are glad to inform you that your Ning Network 3.0 becomes better and better every day. And now, we want to introduce a new feature that can significantly improve the interaction with your network members and encourage their engagement.

The Polls feature can provide you with a great number of opportunities. Do you want to know what your network members want to discuss? Are you going to launch a new option? Do you want to know the opinion of your audience about a certain topic? Now, your communication with your network members becomes much faster and much more effective.
Depending on what you want to discuss, you can either create a survey (Question Polls) or offer your network members to choose one of the variants (Polls) to know their preferences and opinions.

How to set it up?
You can easily set up your Polls on your network admin panel.

Simply add a new page and choose Polls in the pop-down list of the page type.

You can also choose who can edit and see this page. Click Save to save all the changes.

Now, you can find the Polls page on your network Menu panel.
