Default Fun FB Poll Ideas?

I'm trying to get some more friendly conversation between customers on our FB site. However, you can't tag people in posts or send direct messages. So I'm trying to come up with ideas to post fun questions or polls to try and draw in peoples attention. Any ideas?

In my experience personally and for clients, you have to build rapport with the fans first. Depending on your subject matter, post a funny photo and ask a probing questing that requires more than a like. You can see how much people are interacting by viewing the insights -- even if they don't respond. It may take a while before they want to talk but keep talking, they're listening 😊

I have severely slacked on my own page but have seen great success with clients' pages growing and click thrus with contests and coupon codes, etc.

Good luck!

Creating a Poll is a very brilliant idea if you've a lot of users attached to your Facebook account. I myself get numerous responses from users I've not added from a poll. It would be nice if someone share their ideas about creating a responsive poll.

I think you guys are talking about Ask A Question option in Facebook. I find this one great, most specially in the day it was released. All of the people really tries to do their poll.

Quite possibly. I've only ever used facebook for personal until this year. I never really explored all of it's potential options and am still a little lost about what all it has to offer. So assuming that yes, we are talking abour the Ask A Question, what would be some ideas of engaging questions to ask?

This is really great idea. Creating question pools, trivia, fun trivia brings you closer to the people who require your website, products, and line of business the most.

The idea of Facebook: Ask a Question is like a survey.. You will ask Question, and you can provide answers for them to choose from, and the respondent can contribute other poll answers to choose from as well. It find it so interactive most specially if the poll is about Hot Topic News that happens or will happened soon. It will be popular as soon as your friend answer the question and the friend of friend had also answer the poll, it will soon shared around the world in that case.

By the way for those marketers: If it will be shared to everyone, You can surely easily able them to like your page or add you as a friend as time goes by.

Many facebook users love contests that showcase their photos or anything personal to them. A competition of the wackiest photo would be fun.

I noticed that more and more facebook users are using the site less. They also participate in less conversations and would probably ignore any pool or request to join and like.

The volume of requests is becoming quite high and discouraging. Let's also not forget that most people use these sites as a novelty, after a while the get less interested.

How about starting a poll about some current news - not too controversial and ideally something related to your business field.
