Is it advisable to create a poll question on a Facebook business page?


I would like to ask if it's advisable to use a Facebook business page to create poll questions? And can anyone suggest some engaging poll questions to ask on social media?

Hey Mar, that really depends on what your Facebook page is about! 

That aside, a good question would be "What new <product, thing, or event> do you want?"

Hi Mar,

The best way to ask a poll question is by making it easy for your followers to answer! Give them choices such as A, B, C or D, so they only have to type a letter to respond. If you ask an open ended question you may get less engagement. Hope that helps!

Hi Mar, First off Yes! Always ask your audience what they want; it is your ongoing market research. As far as the type of questions to ask Lynn is correct, you want to make it really easy for them.

Another alternative you may like to consider (depending on the number of followers you have) is PM your top engagers and invite them to be a part of a focus group. Facilitated well you can dig a little deeper around thier responses.

You could set up a group skype call or a google hangout to bring them all together if distance is an issue.

Good Luck!
