What are interactive posts? 

Interactive posts are social media posts that incorporate engaging content elements like quizzes, polls, games, and surveys, allowing users to actively participate and interact with the social media content rather than passively scrolling over it. These posts go beyond static images or text, creating a more immersive and personalized experience for the audience.

Social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram, and LinkedIn do have limitations in creating highly interactive posts. While features like polls and user actions through likes, comments, and shares are available, the interaction scope within the platforms is often limited. To overcome this, interactive posts extend beyond social media boundaries. They aim to drive viewers to dedicated landing pages for more extensive and interactive content, including games, personality tests, and quizzes, providing a richer experience. By directing users to these engaging landing pages, brands maximize the potential of Playable marketing and foster meaningful interactions with their audience.
