Ask Engaging Questions on Facebook
January 6, 2014 by
Engaging your current Facebook followers means your page will appear in newsfeeds, which could prompt your fans’ friends to check out your page.
This Social Media Examiner post offers a variety of ways to connect with your Facebook audience.
One method is using closed-ended questions, fill in the blank statements or “true or false” statements to elicit response.
Need some ideas? Here are just a few to get you started:
• The best gift I ever received was ______________.
• Would you rather be (or date?) Thor or Iron Man?
• True or false: Chocolate is better than vanilla
• If you could fly or be invisible, which would you choose?
You can also use “This or This” or “This, This or This” posts to encourage responses. For example, “Beach or Mountains?” and “Sushi, Italian or Mexican?” are simple yet highly effective.
When you use a conversation starter such as one of these, make sure you follow up consistently. Comment on replies and keep the conversation going with more questions or your own input.
