Flisti is a relatively new creation on the internet. It was designed to make it easy for users to share information and their thoughts on various topics. Anyone can create a poll simply by entering a question along with potential answers. The tools available are very flexible, yet remain simple enough for anyone to use. Today, Flisti is still focused on helping users create easily accessible online polls that encourage user participation.
There are sites that offer online polls, but these are usually one part of the site’s features. That is not to say that Flisti is lacking. The site has made it extremely easy for users to create a poll and observe the progress and results of that poll. Users can create as many or as few answer options as they like. What makes Flisti more attractive compared to other similar sites is the lack of a registration requirement. Users can create a free poll without creating an account.
The Flisti logo is fun, and helps spice up the sparse homepage. Users are met with a light blue box that includes all the fields necessary to build their first online poll. Below, simple light gray boxes show the user their poll history, both in polls created and voted on. The rest of the site contains primarily white space, which keeps the focus on functionality rather than eye candy.
Flisti has streamlined the online poll creation and management process. Users can visit the homepage and create their own poll on any topic imaginable without registering. The site does allow users to share polls through Facebook, Twitter, Yahoo, and Disqus, which will require an existing account with the social networking resource chosen. However this is not a requirement to use Flisti. Users can create polls, share them however they like, and gather answers or supply their responses to existing polls without spending any time making an account! There are no usernames or passwords to remember to use Flisti.
Flisti wants to encourage users to create and participate in polls. Requiring a membership fee would reduce the likeliness that individuals would do this. The site is great for streamlining the online poll creation process, however it offers little else. There are a few monitoring and sharing tolls, including social networking connectivity and the ability to review existing polls created by other users. However Flisti really doesn’t offer a service that would warrant a membership fee. The site is currently available for free and has given no indication as to whether they plan to change that anytime in the future. In reality, without adding more functionality and appeal to the site, Flisti would not benefit from offering a premium account. It is doubtful most regular users would pay for the service without some sort of improvement.
Those who love to get the opinions of others can enjoy Flisti. As an entertainment resource, users can share fun or humorous polls with friends. Information could be gathered on current events, celebrities, or other relevant topics through user opinion shared on a poll. Users could encourage friends to participate and guess what the results might be. Businesses and professionals could use Flisti to ask customers questions about services and products, although the site is not entirely professional in appearance and may not work well in certain industries.
