How to Update a Timeline Post with a New Image

Have you ever posted content on your Facebook Page only to realize that you made a typo and hit the "Publish" button a little too fast? It's happened to the best of us and fortunately Facebook will let you edit a post after it's been published. However updating an attachment like your poll's picture and description can be a little bit tricky. But no worries, we'll guide you through this!

Track Your Ads Performance With The Facebook Pixel

Timeline

Boosting your poll with a promoted post is a great practice to increase its visibility. This lets you target a specific audience and reach people outside your immediate circle of fans and friends. But how can you track your campaign performance and know how many people actually answered your poll as a result of seeing your ad? How can you re-engage with participants in order to promote your business?

The answer to both these questions lies in the Facebook Pixel. The pixel allows you to track participants so you can assess the effectiveness of your ad campaigns and then target these same participants as a Custom Audience in your next campaigns.

Bulk Import Options for Multiple-Choice Questions

When adding a multiple-choice question to a poll, it can be tedious to create each option and type in the different choices. Today we are introducing a new feature to make it easier to import many options at once. When creating a question, look for the "+ Bulk Import" link. When you click that link, a popup opens with a text box where you can type in or paste many options at once.
