This topic is for managers of Facebook communities to hang out and bounce around ideas.
Right then, let me start with a question for other Facebook people.
Polls, who does them and how do you do them?
Hey Mark! I haven’t used polls yet in our community (we tend to use survey monkey or Google forms for surveys) but I could see it being handy for some kind of a vote.
Maybe you are thinking of creating some value for the community and you post a poll…what should I make a video or post on tomorrow…this, this or this.
Do you use them?
Not at the moment. If I ask the community a question, it’s usually a simple choice between 2 things. Facebook used to have a built in poll tool, but since that went away I see a lot of posts from other pages using the different reactions to get results. Not sure how effective that is, but open to suggestions.
Nah I don’t really use them, unless it’s just for fun. My people tend to comment instead of vote anyway.
I"m curious to know how you find users on a FB community. What kinds of things do you post? Since I have an online community through telligent, should I create a FB community? Lots of my customers are already there.I’m very curious about this!
As part of our FTUE (First Time User Experience) in our games, we encourage customers to like our page on Facebook for a free gift, that is how we get most of our growth and then we focus on keeping people interested in our page by creating engaging/fun posts in the hope they like the content and their friends see their activity and come an have a look. We have a decent amount of people every day clicking the “use app” button on our page and we have steady growth every day so it must be working.
