Facebook engagement effectiveness all depends on what type of approach you take to communicate with your fans.

- Fill in the blanks
- Photo captions

Photos are extremely important when it comes to Facebook marketing. Depending on what type of business it is the better the image the better the click through rate if that image is connected with some sort of destination on the other end. It could also be a funny photo that connects emotionally with your audience.
Fill in the Blanks
Who doesn’t like to engage in a fun game that might give them a chuckle? This effort works especially well if you have loyal fans on your website. Set up a fill in the blank contest to get your Facebook fans engaged and thinking.
If the image you place on your Facebook wall is good enough people will leave comments. You have to find an image that will have some sort of connection with your Facebook fans. Entice them in some sort of way to get those comments filling up.
