Instagram is famous for its great features. Not only it already has a lot of cool features to jazz up your posts but also it keeps updating them. A while ago the app introduced its new feature and now it’s out for everyone to enjoy. Instagram question sticker is the newest option available on this platform which provides the opportunity of asking and answering questions right on your story section.
The main idea behind updating these options and stickers is to make the posts and as a result the app more interactive. Instagram question sticker allows you to ask a question from your followers so they can write the answer to you. It also enables them to ask something from you so you can answer the questions in your following stories. The interesting point is that it will not reveal the identity of the sender.
How to use Instagram question sticker
Using it is super easy and fun. You can go to your story section by tapping the camera icon on the top left corner. Now you should take a photo or record a video to upload as your new story. (Click here to find out what a story is and how you can use it.) . Next just choose the sticker part to find Instagram question sticker- as you find other stickers . Tap on it. Now you can see the sticker on your screen, and by default it says ” Ask me something”. You can just keep it that way and post it so people will ask you some questions. In your following stories you can respond to the questions for everyone to see without revealing the sender’s identity.
You could also change it and type a question so people can answer that for you. Again yo0 can respond to the answers. It’s possible to change the background color by tapping on the sticker and choosing the color you like.
Instagram poll was already available which enabled people to choose one option between two. But this new feature, Instagram question sticker, has made it more interactive allowing them to give a longer response freely.
How to respond to the questions
To respond to the questions you can open your story and swipe up. Here you can see both the viewers and their questions/ responses to your Instagram question sticker. By clicking on their response you can answer them and send it as a new story.
Why Instagram question sticker?
Instagram question sticker which the app had bee testing for the past month is now available on both Android and iOS devices. While the primary use of this seems to be doing Q&As with followers, it also works as an great way to get recommendations on local landmarks or businesses. You could combine it with geofilters, to make it function the same way as Facebook’s requests for recommendations does.
In fact, I can think of just about any number of uses for Questions when combined with Instagram’s other features. Playing music in your Story? Ask your followers if they know of any similar bands. Going to see a movie? Ask for quick, one-word reviews of current releases. Post a Story about what you’re wearing a get your followers to recommend similar-looking brands by tagging them.
