Facebook Questions is a feature that lets you conduct quick polls with your audience. You select it by clicking on the "Event +" option at the top of your Facebook Page. Enter your question and then provide several answers for your fans to choose from.

In theory, this feature is a good thing. But it makes sense only if enough of your fans participate. At SiteSell Facebook, questions get much more engagement if we ask them via a normal status update, or in combination with a photo.

Compare the results against questions you ask normally. Then go with the format that works best for you.
