Let's all panic together in 3...2...1...
If you use Instagram, you'll have undoubtedly seen the latest addition to Stories - Instagram Polls.
Yes, people can now ask us all questions and we can respond witihing Instagram stories. However many people thought that their answers were anonymous, but sadly we're here to tell you that that's not the case.
Many people are now beginning to realise that the joke answers they tapped on their friend's poll can now be seen by that friend and they could come across as pretty savage.
People took to Twitter to share their shock that their answers aren't secret and it sounds like there is a lot of regret out there!
So instagram added a new poll feature but u can literally see who votes what answer. I CAN NOW SEE ALL MY H8ERS.— austin (@awstennn) October 4, 2017

pouring one out for everyone who hadn't realised that your answers in an Instagram story poll aren't anonymous— Hannah Louise (@hannahlouisef) October 5, 2017

When one of your followers votes in your poll, you get a notification which tells you exactly how they've voted, so if you've given a joke answer because you thought the person couldn't see it...uh oh!
Let's spread the message and make sure there aren't any unceccessary beefs starting accidentally.
