40 (More) Creative Facebook Status Ideas To Electrify Your Community

By Adam Dukes | Small Business

Having trouble coming up with Facebook status ideas?

Your Facebook business page is not generating the engagement you had
hoped for?

A few months ago I wrote a blog post – 61 Creative Facebook Status Ideas To Set Your Engagement On Fire.

It is the one of the most popular posts on this site with 150+ social shares and 1,061 page views since being published just over 4 months ago. In fact, it is the 2nd most popular page this month, so it is still generating traffic after 4 months.

Are you seeing the power in content marketing?

It also drives a lot of organic traffic letting me know that a lot of people search Google for Facebook status ideas or something similar to that.

Obviously, with Google’s recent changes, I do not know how people are finding the site now, but know it was a popular search term before.

With that being said, I HAD to do a follow up post, right?

Get the Conversation Started…

Fill in the blank status updates are great as people always like to “voice” their opinions. You can’t ask them a question that requires a long answer a that is not as effective. For Facebook question posts, the shorter, the better.

  1. My favorite way to relax after a long hard day is __________________
  2. Time for a fun game. If you had to pick a movie title for your life story, what would it be? And who would play you in the movie?
  3. What is your least favorite feature on Facebook?
  4. Fill in the blank: ________________ always makes me feel inspired.
  5. Time for a fun game. Who are your five best friends, and why? Tag them if they’re on FB.
  6. What was your #1 mode of keeping in touch before Facebook?
  7. Time for a fun game. Which TV family is most like your own?
  8. What’s the best compliment you’ve ever received?
  9. Birthday reminders rock. What’s YOUR favorite feature on FB?

  11. What do you love most about Facebook?
  12. Fill in the blank: ________________ always makes me feel flattered.
  13. Time for a fun game. If you had 3 wishes, what would they be? (You can’t wish for another wish, or money.)
  14. Fill in the blank: ________________ always makes me feel captivated.
  15. Fill in the blank: I find ________________ hilarious!

  18. Fill in the blank: ________________ always makes me feel amazed.
  19. Time for a fun game. What’s one thing you can do today, to make someone else laugh? Did you do it yet? How about now?
  20. Fill in the blank: ________________ always makes me feel appreciated.

Hangman

This is a lot of fun to play, but make sure you have someone there to monitor the responses. Depending on the size of your community, this game can go by pretty fast, but it does take time for you to reply to each guess.

This is an excellent way to increase the engagement on any Facebook page.
