Facebook Questions for Pages

Facebok questions truncate after 99 characters.

I’m slow to Facebook Questions party. Partly because of the overzealous use of them right after rollout. I like to be early, but I also like to hang back a little to get a sense of how things work first.

We’ve used twitpoll with mixed results for the Texas Tech account. The most successful was measuring where our followers first heard about the news that Osama bin Laden had been assassinated.

July 12 was National #frenchfryday so I decided to try both a twitpoll and a Facebook Question. With the help of a Mashable article, it was a cinch.

Some extra tips:

  • The description of the poll is truncated at around 99 characters.
  • You have no control once you publish (as in you can’t customize a comment).
  • It seems that the fewer choices, the better since more than are hidden in the post stream.

Anyone else have fun stuff to share?
