Reddit debuted a new type of post last week. It is already possible to post with votes, as it already happens on other social platforms, such as Twitter or Facebook. Polls can remain open for a week and include six response options. Note that moderators can close polls before this period.
The company states that the launch of this functionality was a necessity. According to the technology, users have used services outside of Reddit to create votes, so it made perfect sense to integrate a similar system on the site. Last month, he stresses, about 15 thousand votes were being taken based on these services.
The process thus becomes easier, since it is native. To create a vote, just do it as you would to create another type of post. See an example of the final result through this link.
The functionality has been active on the platform since this Tuesday, March 24 and is supported on all subreddits.
