First and foremost, be aware of Facebook's guidelines when creating reaction polls. You can find the full contents of their policies regarding reactions right here. https://en.facebookbrand.com/assets/reactions
But of most import is this portion:

"If using Reactions as part of a poll, don't use Reactions in the following ways:

  • Don't associate a Reaction with something that doesn't match its emotional intent (ex: “choose angry if you like the cute kitten”).
  • Don’t make Reactions the most distinctive or prominent feature of your creative.
  • Don't use Reactions for polls in video where the whole stream consists of static or looping graphics or images."

We think reaction polls are a great way to drive engagement with live video content. Driving engagement can help a live video be distributed more widely on Facebook.

Each time a user clicks a reaction, it registers as a 'vote' in a reaction poll on Vidpresso. Users can click as many times as they want, which encourages engagement on Facebook.

Creating a reaction poll

Reaction polls are available inside of streams in Vidpresso. Once you've created a stream, and joined it, click on the "polls" sidebar in Vidpresso.

Once you're in the poll tab, the "Create a new poll" menu will already be open by default. You'll see two options at the top. Select "Reactions". (You can learn more about Keyword polling too.)

Pick a name for your poll, this typically shows up in the poll graphic. You an also pick the specific reactions you'd like to use. You can use as few or as many as you'd like.

When you're done, click "Create poll".

That will add the poll on the left side, which is a list of all your polls. 

The available poll options are across the top. The leftmost target option is "Activate", which puts the poll graphically into your stream. The next one to the right that looks like a TV sends it to "prompt view".

On the right, the checkbox toggles whether the poll is currently gathering results. The next one over resets the count to 0. The clock resets the count from the beginning of the stream, and the trash can deletes the poll from the stream.

All of the built-in graphic packages have poll graphics that look similar to this:

With that you should be good to go! Email us: support@vidpresso.com, or hit the chat bubble in the corner if you have any more questions.
