Any benefit to putting polls in Hubs?

    Any benefit to putting polls in Hubs?

    I have put a poll in most of my 40 Hubs and haven't had one vote yet ... So, unless they are doing something I don't know about it, I think I will start reserving the space for something else.

    Interesting.  My understanding of using Polls in Hubs was to add a dimension by which readers could interact with the hubs they read.

    People feel more involved and are more likely to give feedback and leave a rating if they were able to participate.

    I've only used Polls a few times, but will need to go back and see how many people used them.

    I don't fully understand their value yet either. Yes, it allows people to interact which may be a good thing but I'd rather have them press the feedback buttons or leave a comment. That's a much richer way of interacting with the Hub author and the community.

    I think people only click the poll when they feel like it - which is not very often. Perhaps if the poll has very funny anwers it'll work better.
