50 questions to ask on your parenting Facebook page to boost engagement

Facebook is one of the hardest platforms to gain followers on, and when you do have them, facebook only shows your post to a select few. Hi Mum! So how can we get our posts seen more?

Facebook favours posts that get interaction and engagement, but how do you get that engagement if nobody sees? Asking questions or getting people to discuss a debate is one way. The new algorithm favours not just comments but discussion within the comments, so always reply to any comments you get and encourage discussion and debate. The reason behind this was to stop those ‘Comment yes if you agree!’ and such like.

I’ve come up with a tried and tested bank of questions for parenting pages that get good results each time they’re posted which you can totally steal and use. You can vary them to suit or use them as is.
