Increase Facebook Engagement by Posting the First Comment

Did you know you can double the engagement on your Facebook Page posts simply by posting the first comment?

We recently analyzed our data from thousands of Facebook Page posts and came to the realization that posts published by FPTraffic with a First Comment scheduled as well received twice the engagement.


Here is an example of a First Comment:
