I have niche social network and need the right software to allow members to create polls/surveys. I'm looking for the best option specifically for a social network.
If your site runs on Wordpress, check out the WP-Polls plugin. If you are looking for forms that you can integrate onto your site as well as other social media sites like Facebook, either Survey Monkey or Mailchimp will work well.
Survey Monkey - Free account offers limited features, but the poll can be open to a wide audience.
Mailchimp - Comes with a ton of features, however you can only poll your mailing list members. http://kb.mailchimp.com/article/can-i-send-surveys-with-mailchimp/
We have had good luck with both Survey Monkey and the survey tool built into Constant Contact
Survey Monkey or Polldaddy are a couple good options.
Survey Monkey is what I use. And a gazillion other companies use it. You don't have to reinvent the wheel on this one.
Don't stop taking massive action.
Best of Luck,

There are a few different options worth checking out, including SurveyMonkey, SurveyGizmo, Typeform, Fieldboom and AskNicely.
Fieldbloom makes it easy to design beautiful surveys and online forms in less than 5 minutes.
You can analyze responses one-by-one and also tag them with labels, star them and mark them as read or unread (just like Gmail). You can also use the simple but powerful reports to understand trends in the feedback you’re receiving.
Here's the full list of survey options you can check out with pros and cons for each: http://www.fieldboom.com/blog/surveymonkey-competitors-alternatives/.
