Ask and Answer
Engagement on Facebook does well when you encourage your audience to discuss and debate on your page. By creating content that asks questions, it entices your audience to offer their opinions.

By thoroughly answering any questions posed by users it establishes you as a resource for future queries and adds to the overall discussion.
Similar to ask and answer, creating content that gives audiences a chance to select an answer or be involved can increase the engagement of your posts. Ideas for interactive content could be anything like polls or quizzes. Anything that’ll spark interaction.
