Facebook Polling

With Switcher Studio's Facebook Polling feature, you can create a poll during your livestream and get real-time feedback from your audience. You can monitor the results inside Switcher and show them on the live video player in Facebook. Currently, the results do not display in Switcher Studio, the graphic only appears in the video player on Facebook.
