How to Create a Selfie Question


You guessed it right! The ‘Selfie’ question is about letting users take a selfie as an answer to a survey question. Respondents also get the freedom to either take a selfie or upload a previously taken selfie image.


There can be many use cases, but this question type is helpful, especially in scenarios like a company is surveying its employees for job satisfaction, seeking feedback about an event using an internal employee survey, asking its customers for testimonials along with their pictures, and so on.


Benefits of the Selfie question in a survey:

  • Add a personal touch to the survey
  • Increase user engagement
