50 Facebook Group Prompts to Stir Up Conversation and Engagement

50 Facebook Group Prompts to Stir Up Conversation and Engagement

(and how to know the best days to post)

Have a growing Facebook group? Need more engagement?

Well, if you leave it to its own devices and don’t show up and post consistently, it will quickly fall flat.

And you definitely don’t want your Facebook group to be a dead zone.

You want it to be lively - conversation stirring, where people are engaged with each other, and benefitting from the content you post.

But figuring out what to say everyday and how to spark that conversation can be a struggle.

Not only do YOU want to be the leader as the admin, but you want to educate, inspire and present your audience with conversational topics that will keep them interested in your content.

To do that you must first know the purpose of your group.

Why did you start it?

What do you hope to achieve?

What do you want your group members to take away from it everyday?

How do you want them to feel after engaging?

Take a moment and decide this, as you don’t want to simply "throw spaghetti on the wall" (posting empty, irrelevant content) hoping it sticks.

Your ultimate goal when looking to increase your engagement on social media should be to:

  1. Inspire
  2. Educate
  3. Captivate

These are the 3 pillars to writing engaging captions and content, and in this case, to having group members that don’t leave; but instead they constantly want to comment and get value from your posts.

Once you know the goal of your group and how you want your audience to benefit you'll need to come up with daily content.

That's right, daily. Jumping into your group daily, showing up for your audience and being the one to start the conversation, puts your brand in a position to be remembered.

Having your audience dominate the conversations and galvanize your community for you will leave you as an afterthought, even if you are the host.

Facebook groups thrive on engagement, so you’ll need prompts that spark interest and conversation.

This can vary from niche to niche and topic to topic, but here are 50 prompts in question form, you can post that are worth the answer.

When people typically post Facebook group prompt lists, they often give very generic prompts that may or may not apply to your business.

The key to making Facebook group prompts relevant lies in how well YOU as the group host relate these back to your goal, topic or niche for the group.

So be sure to tailor these prompts to your niche or industry. Tweak them so they relate to something you typically teach, or create content around.

For instance, for the prompt, “Where in the world are you?”

Instead, you could ask your audience "Where are you? Tell us where we can go to get the best meal.” to bring it back on topic (say, for a travel or foodie group).

Alternatively, if your group has gone cold for a while and you need activity, you could leave a prompt question like this open-ended just to get the engagement back so the FB algorithm is triggered.

So here we go:

50 Facebook Group Prompts to ask your audience and Stir Conversation:

Now that you have some creative ideas on what to post to your Facebook group, let’s talk about when to post.

When to Post to Your Facebook Group To get the Most Engagement

To know when to post to your Facebook group, you’ll want to study your Facebook Group Insights.

Step 1: Inside the FB app, click on the shield icon at the top right corner settings menu to access your group settings.

Step 2: Click then on “Posts, Comments and Reactions” at the top.

These are your engagement analytics.

Step 3: Scroll down to see your group's “Popular days” and “ Popular times.”

Bingo: This is when you want to post your best content.

If you’re just starting your group and do not have a lot of engagement, post at least once a day or twice a day - one in the morning and one in the late afternoon, to start getting some traction.

As time goes on and your group numbers increase, you’ll begin to see the best and most popular days and times for engaging with your audience.

Consistency is key, so be sure to post daily and you’ll start to see your engagement numbers rise. Take note of these prompts and let me know in the comments which ones you’ll use!
