Make your own Facebook quiz with an app

You can make your own using the Facebook quizzes with a simple app.

Addicted to Facebook quizzes? There's an app for that. In fact, there are several apps that can help you create quizzes on Facebook. Quizzes for Facebook is one of the better apps for building quizzes because it's simple and doesn't post unwanted updates to your feed.
