Facebook launched "Questions" feature

Facebook released a new version of its Questions feature on Thursday, the result of nearly a year of beta testing.
I tried it out since it launched a few days back.  I hope to get a lot of feedback from you guys.  So now you can have more control of what the next video tutorial will be by voting.

You can now go vote on what I should draw on my next video on Facebook.
Below are the poll questions from idrawgirls Facebook page
Both via Facebook questions.  I think this will help us understand you more and possibly will make us grow together as a community.

The new version of Questions takes the focus off public inquiries (a service already dominated by Q&A sites like Quora, idrawgirls.com is also on Qoura.) and instead focuses on soliciting recommendations from friends.

"There are a lot of places you can go on the internet to ask questions of people who you don't know, but there are very few places you can go to get responses from your friends," said Adrian Graham on his facebook blog post "The wisdom from friends." He is a project manager for Questions. "We thought that this is where we should focus."
The updated version will be rolled out to current testers first. When they start asking questions, the feature will automatically be pushed to their friends.

One really cool feature that I really like is that Answers to questions are not free-form; users are limited to multiple-choice responses. Also any user can make an additional choice to the question itself.

I wish they would be a function that I could just embed the poll on my blog so that you don't have to click the link to go to the actual page.  That would be a killer function!
