How to Create Engaging Facebook Posts

Posted on 28 December 2012 by Toby Gonzales

Many businesses find it hard to create engaging Facebook posts for their Facebook community .  One technique that we find useful is asking questions.  Questions are a great way to increase engagement on Facebook.

If you don’t offer thought provoking opportunities  to engage with your fans on facebook, it makes it easier for readers to just skim, read, and move on without responding to your posts.

But when you include a question in your post, it is more likely for users to pause and think before moving on. It will also greatly increase the likelihood of your fans sharing their thoughts and then their friends clicking the like button.

Here is a list of “question types” that could help you when trying to create a more engaging Facebook post strategy.

Direct When you stay on the Outer Banks, would you prefer a hotel or a rental home?
Edgy What do you think of Instagram’s new Terms of Service in regards to your photos?
Events Who is going to the Duck Jazz Festival?
Experience What is your favorite OBX Restaurant?
Fun If you could be “CEO for the day” of any company, what would it be?
Humanistic Have you ever sat next to anyone famous on an airplane, subway, etc?
Mad Lib If I could interview (name who you would interview), I would not sleep for three days.
Photo Where is this photo taken?
Preference Do you like staying in Corolla or Kill Devil Hills, when you are vacationing on the Outer Banks of North Carolina?
Specific What is your favorite FBiframes app?
Timely Today is Valentine’s Day, Who is your valentine?
Tips What is the best rental company on the OBX?
True or False True or False:  Did the Wright Brothers first fly in Kitty Hawk?
Yes or No Is the Lost Colony the longest running outdoor Drama?

Updating Your Facebook News Feed

Posted on 21 December 2012 by FBiframes

Sometimes you forget when having writer’s block that you can really write about things in normal day life or even taking an interesting and important piece of information from a discussion with a client.

This is my eternal gratitude to “The Client”!!!

So today, in conversation, “the client” mentioned, they wished they would not have to read everyone’s political views in their Facebook news feed and the conversations that followed during this last Presidential campaigning period.  ”The client” explicitly talked about how it had gotten so bad, that they wanted to unfriend one person, but it was hard because it was his boss.

Uh oh, quite the dilemma!!!

This brought up a couple of questions and one remedy that everyone should follow when they are faced with this dilemma.

So first, I will cover the remedy to save you from this kind of situation that Facebook actually allows you to cure as you being able to manage your own profile.

On the top of the page of the person (your boss) that you have friended in the past, click on the Friends button.

In the drop down you will see at the top of the drop down box:

  • Get Notifications
  • Show in News Feed

Uncheck both Now you want to make sure that both are unchecked.  Once you have done that you will not see any posts, links or shares from that person anymore.

However, those of you —- where absence makes the heart grow fonder, so say in 3 months you can actually go back to the Friend button on that person’s profile and place a check mark next to both of them, and low and behold you will be able to grudgingly see their ridiculous posts again in your Facebook new feed!!

Hopefully this helps you from seeing those retarded posts from your boss, without him knowing that you don’t appreciate his politics!!!!

I always thought that you dont discuss politics at a bar, or even on Facebook the new bar stool!!  What are your thoughts, Let us know if you have some other do’s and dont’s on your social media interactions…
