Why to use voting by comments instead of reactions in Facebook live polls

Facebook live comments polls can be considered as most fast growing ones due to several reasons. The main is that Facebook recently updated their Guidelines. Thus one of the rules in Terms of Use postulates: "Don't use Reactions for polls in video where the whole stream consists of static or looping graphics or images.". But as you could notice, everyone is still actively using it. In LiveReacting we tend to encourage transparency, that's why this statement can be also found as a note while creating voting by reactions polls through our service. We encourage you to give a preference to voting by comments polls. They are same easy in creation and can give you same (or even higher) coverage of your posts and page in Facebook.
