Add a powerful & easy-to-use online polling solution to your site.
Opinion Stage online polls are social polls which means that social network identities are used for polling the participants. This makes the poll more engaging than the typical online poll, letting users discover who supports what and how each user voted in other polls. You can also follow users and then filter the poll results by the people you follow. Using social polls improves the distribution of the poll in social networks, allows gathering contact, demographic & social statistics from the poll participants. Lastly, social polls also work very well for elections & competitions.
When creating the polls you can determine if a social profile is required, if it is optional or if it is not required at all for voting. Opinion Stage online polls currently support Facebook, Twitter & Google login, and will include additional poll login options in the future.
When using a social profile to participate in the poll, you can hide your vote so that nobody besides yourself knows what you voted in the poll. In addition, the administator can configure that users can vote anonymously in the poll without requiring a social profile.
Users can either share the poll question from the social (e.g. Facebook & Twitter) sharing buttons that are displayed on the top of the poll or by sharing the social sharing dialog that is displayed automatically after they vote in the poll. Opinion Stage never shares anything on the users' behalf without getting explicit permission for it.
Using social polls offer the following main benefits: (1) improves user engagement on the site (2) drives traffic from social networks to the site (3) allow you to discover the the person behind the opinion (4) serves as a great tool for running elections & contests (5) allow you to gather contact, social & demographic information from the poll participants
