Social media questions has always been a good way of starting conversations on social media.

When asked correctly, however, questions generate many comments and likes. It is, therefore, imperative to be creative and vary the nature of questions often though this may not be easy if you are starting out and your audience is small. 

However, if you have a large audience, their comments can help you determine the next question to ask.
