Instagram Stories getting more interactive with new ‘Question Sticker’ conversation starters

"Along with the polling sticker and emoji slider, the questions sticker gives you another easy way to get closer with all of your friends on Instagram", the firm said.

Beware, however, before you confess to your crush on the platform that the users can see who asks what question.

The new feature is a strong step towards increasing engagement in Instagram stories, and lets users add a question to their stories, to which their followers can respond directly through the sticker itself. Decorate the story however you like then hit "share". With the questions sticker, launched on Tuesday, users can prompt story-watchers to ask them questions, which can be answered publicly in a subsequent post.

Instagram added a new "questions" sticker feature to the app. Users can ask their followers questions and followers can reply with any answer. You'll be able to tap a response from someone to share it and answer the question in your story, but when you do that, keep in mind that their photo and username will not be shown. The "questions" sticker is then available in the first few rows of the stickers.

In October past year Instagram first added the polling feature to Stories to allow your followers to weigh in on your everyday dilemmas. You can find all of their questions by checking out your viewers' list, very similar to how you view results to your IG polls.

Followers will see your poll when they view your story, and can cast their own vote to reveal which choice is in the lead.

Instagram is a free download from the App Store.

For iOS, users will also be shown a blue alignment tool to help you centre your stickers.
