FAQ

What does the name Peepoc mean?

We get asked this a lot! We believe that social media has an important role to play in democracy. The people need to be able to voice their opinions. We combined the words people & democracy to create Peepoc.

 

What is Peepoc?

Peepoc is a Social Polling Network. Essentially we are an online community of people who post polls rather than status updates or blogs. Within Peepoc there are different communities of people who have come together around one topic or interest. You can post polls about anything you fancy – it’s your network, you ask the questions.

 

Does Peepoc have an app?

We have both an IOS and an Android app. You can download them for free in the Apple Store and Google Play store.

 

What is an Activity Feed?

Once you are logged in to Peepoc.com, you will be directed to your Activity Feed. This will display the polls from people you follow and communities you are a member of.

 

Why haven’t I had many votes on my poll(s)?

Let’s start with the basics. You need to have followers otherwise no one will see your poll(s). The simplest way to get more votes is to invite your friends to join Peepoc!

An easy way to do this is to share your polls on Facebook & Twitter. You can also copy the URL of the poll and send it to your friends on email or anywhere you would like.

Use the search feature to find people to follow, then hopefully they will follow you back. Make sure you have updated your profile so they can read some information about you. The more you put, the more follows you will receive!

You can also use the search feature to find communities. You can post polls in that community around a specific topic and your poll will be seen by all members, whether they are following you or not.

 

Why don’t I have many followers?

Make sure you have updated your profile so people can read some information about you. The more you put, the more follows you will receive!

Join some communities to get your name out there in the world of Peepoc. To do this, use the search function to find a community of things you are interested in.

Follow people and they will hopefully return the favour and follow you. If you vote on a poll, be sure to follow the poll poster too.

Posting polls is another way to get followers, if your poll comes up in their search result they might vote and follow you.

Share your polls on Facebook & Twitter for more votes and follows. You can also copy the URL of the poll and send it to your friends on email or anywhere you would like.

 

What is a Community?

A Peepoc community is a group of people who are interested in the same thing. Here are some of our communities for example:

Film Fanatics
Morals, ethics and manners!
Politics Pollsters
Parents of babies and toddlers

If you don’t see a community that takes your fancy, create your own!

What is a Founder?

The person who set up/owns a community.

 

How do I get more Community Members?

Much the same as promoting polls and getting more followers.

Firstly you need to make sure your community description is inviting and tells people what the group is about.

Secondly, share, share and share some more! Copy the link from the URL bar and paste into anywhere you want to. Some examples:

Facebook
Twitter
LinkedIn
Your blog
Email
Intranet

 

I made a spelling mistake! What can I do?

If you make a spelling mistake whilst posting a poll you need to delete the poll and start again. We can’t allow editing of polls because poll posters would be able to completely rewrite the poll without the permission of the voters.

If you make a mistake whilst making a comment you also need to delete it and start again. Soon you will be able to edit.

Tip! Copy and paste your poll/comment into Word/Notepad, correct it, then paste back into Peepoc.

 

Why can’t I edit a poll?

We can’t allow editing of polls because poll posters would be able to completely rewrite the poll without the permission of the voters.

 

Will the polls I post into Communities be seen by my followers?

Only if you check the tick-box saying “also post to activity feed” when posting the poll. You cannot edit this later on, you will need to delete the poll and start again.

 

Can I post into a Community and my Activity Feed?

Yes, when you are in the ‘create a poll’ form, select the community you wish to post into. Once you have selected this, a tick-box will display that allows you to post into your activity feed as well as the community. You cannot edit this later on, you will need to delete the poll and start again.
