Questions are a great way to encourage your audience to comment and to get to know them better. You should always use open questions to get them involved and stay way of questions that only require a yes or no answer.
8. Don’t promote only your content
Don’t try to aggressively sell on Facebook, whether we’re talking about your content or services. It’s a good idea to occasionally share content from other people, as long as you consider it relevant for your audience. Your fans will appreciate the fact that you keep their best interest in mind.
