Facebook Input is a product feature that is designed to encourage thoughtful engagement between connections.

It is a single-question poll aimed to deviate users from the standard “Like” button, which oftentimes serves as just a means of acknowledgement. Friends are presented with a unique set of responses and must make a choice based on their subjective considerations.


Facebook “Input” is accessed under the umbrella of sharing tools.


Simply type in a question and provide 2-4 options to choose from.


Offer a little or a lot depending on how you view your situation.


Add photos/videos for helpful visual reference and increased engagement.


Your friends will be able to view tabulated results after making a selection.


Friends are encouraged to provide supporting comments or entirely new inputs.
