As a company with a Facebook page you probably have a number of followers, but everything that you post gets ignored. It is probably because the statuses and content that you share are not interesting to your followers, and they may even unlike your page. Here are some Facebook Status ideas to activate your followers and even attract more followers.

Get the Conversation Started

It is always a nice idea to show your followers that you like to hear their opinions. So, fill in the blanks status updates will certainly show them that you appreciate their opinion. But, remember that your questions should require short answers. Here are several examples of this type of updates:
