The differences between Polls, Contests and Quizzes

Polls for Pages, Contests for Pages and Quizzes for Pages are the three apps we offer to help you interact with your fans and grow your business on Facebook. In this blog post, we look at the main differences between these apps so you can decide which one you need.

Polls for Pages

The polling app was the first we introduced back in 2010. This exact same app is also offered under the name Surveys for Pages. Here are a few things you can do exclusively with polls:

  • You can design paginated polls where each question is displayed on a separate page. This can be useful for long questionnaires.

  • You can add an opt-in for your newsletter.

Contests for Pages

Form contests are very similar to polls. You build a questionnaire that participants fill-in for a chance to win a prize. Here are a few exclusive features offered with the contest app:

  • A "Fill-in with Facebook" button lets participants pre-fill their name and email with their Facebook profile info.
  • You can launch comments contests from your page timeline.

Quizzes for Pages

A quiz is similar to a poll but with an added concept of right and wrong answers. Participants get a score after answering all the questions and can share their results with their friends.

A few more things to consider

  • The three apps are also offered in French, Spanish, Portuguese and German.
  • We don't offer bundles unless you subscribe to the Enterprise plan, which includes all three apps.
