Instagram Increases Response Options in Stories Polls, Facilitating Expanded Engagement

Have you noticed this alert in your Instagram Stories sticker tray yet?

As shared by social media advisor Meg Coffey, Instagram has quietly updated its Poll sticker for Instagram Stories, which now enables you to add up to four response options for your poll, doubling your response choices.

That could great for social media managers who are looking to generate more engagement with their Stories, with the simple, one-tap response process of polls providing a great lure for interaction, which can then help to maximize both response and reach.

But it can be hard to narrow polls down to just two responses. There’s always the gray area in between, the ‘both’ responses, and with four reply panels, that makes it much easier to get more in-depth, integrated replies on each topic, which again could be valuable as both a research and engagement option.

In addition to this, user Hammod Oh has also reported that users can now change the color of the poll sticker question text.

Both are small updates within the broader scheme, but each could provide value and utility in different ways.

If you don’t see the new alert in your Stories sticker tray just yet, update to the latest version of the app – and hope that it gets rolled out to you sometime soon.

YouTube Adds New Guided Support Process for Community Guidelines Violations

YouTube’s looking to provide more guidance for creators who’ve been hit with guideline violations via a new, more detailed reporting process that will take them through the specifics of the issue with their content, and what they can do to resolve it.

As you can see in this example, the updated process will provide more information on the specifics of each violation, and what it means for the visibility and monetization of your content, before taking you through the next steps of how you can resolve the issue.

The review process specifies the element in question, and then enables creators to update the clip to address the noted concern/s.

The last element provides an easy way for creators to ask for a second review, if they feel the report was incorrect, while they can also add additional contextual info for YouTube in relation to the violation reported.

It’s a good update, with many YouTube creators expressing frustration at the platform’s current reporting process, which has seen a lot of videos penalized incorrectly. Violations are also reported via a general email template that offers little insight on specifics.

YouTube’s automated detection systems are always improving, and are helping it to clean up its platform in various ways, and this new, guided system will cater to the opposite side of that push, by giving creators a more direct line to understanding each violation, and what they can do about it.

The guided policy process will be available to all creators on the desktop version of YouTube Studio, and will be accessible for all strikes, video removals and age restriction violations to begin with.

YouTube says that the option is being rolled out from this week, and will be available to all by the end of the month. Which is pretty much the end of the week.

Pinterest Tests New Idea Pin Highlights to Showcase Specific Content

This seems like a logical and obvious update for Pinterest’s new Idea Pins.

As shown in this image, posted by blogger Yasser Massod, Pinterest is testing out a new ‘Highlights’ element for Idea Pins, which would enable creators to showcase their best Idea Pins at the top of their profile display.

Idea Pins are currently displayed in posted order on the ‘Created’ tab on your profile page, where they remain in perpetuity, enabling creators to get more value out of the platform’s Stories-like offering (as opposed to disappearing after 24 hours).

The new ‘Highlights’ element would appear above the existing content tabs, and below your bio info, which is prime real estate for showcasing your best Idea Pins, and ideally generating more engagement.

Idea Pins link into the rising popularity of short-form video, and the full-screen presentation of Stories, with users able to add up to 20 frames per sequence – either still images or video – to create a more comprehensive overview or narrative.

The capacity to present your best Idea Pins could be a big step in getting optimal value out of the option, and guiding profile visitors to the exact Idea Pins that you want to drive interest and traffic.

If it gets released. We’ve asked Pinterest for more info on the test of Idea Pin highlights, and we’ll update this post if/when we hear back, but given that similar highlights options are already available on Instagram, it makes sense for Pinterest to lean into the same, and give creators more options for presenting their content
