  1. The Question app is no longer available since Facebook decided to pull the plug on it : http://techcrunch.com/2012/10/19/facebook-questions-shut-down/

    As a Facebook developer, I made a similar application that lets you create polls with multiple questions and images. You can use the basic version for free here : http://bit.ly/fbook-poll

      Thanks pomartel,

      The question app is no longer available for personal accounts. However, you can still post a poll or question on “Groups” and “Pages”. You can find it under “Event, Milestone +” in the status update section.

      Thanks for the link. You app offers a lot of options the standard poll doesn’t and give people the opportunity to post on personal timelines. I’ll add a link in the post.

      • Thanks for linking my app in your article! You are right about the tool still being available for Pages and Groups. But since they are burying it under the + sign and stopping further developments, I’m guessing it’s only a matter of time before they remove it completely. Facebook is changing so fast, it’s hard to keep up to date!
