If you weren’t aware that LinkedIn even had a poll feature, you aren’t alone. But with the latest improvements, this tool could assist you in your business and networking campaign. LinkedIn Polls is more basic than other polling sites, such as GoDaddy.com.
It may not be the most sophisticated polling option out there, but what makes it so useful is the analytics support that goes along with it: you can break down your results by age, seniority, gender, time, etc. You can now see what questions men select vs women, or what demographic answers a certain question the most.
You also have visual representations at your disposal: your results can be displayed as graphs or pie charts, and labeled according to your instructions.
