Whether it’s posting followup comments or reaching out to fans that have asked valuable questions or have even posted criticism, it’s important that you build the best relationship with your fans.

Ask Questions
Facebook Pages present an amazing opportunity to learn about your existing Fans or customers. People love to talk about themselves so ask them questions that are also related to your company.

Do you have fans that always write comments and interact with you? Take the time to recognize them and continue to build a relationship with them. Your biggest fans is extremely valuable. These fans will take the time to promote your business for you. They’ll reply to other fan comments and do a lot of your work for you. Building relationships with these individuals is extremely important. Give a quick shout out to the person as a comment and they’ll typically be happy and grateful.

Post Videos, Photos and Notes
One of the great opportunities Facebook provide that you can post different types of updates. If you want to connect with your fans you need to use as many forms of updates as possible. While written status and photos are extremely effective tools for connecting with your fans , video happens to be one of the most popular forms of communication on the internet. So here you come to decide the best type for your communication but don’t stick with one form because that will make your fans bored. In addition, you can also write notes.

Use Your Discussions Application
Forums are one of the best places on the internet to generate knowledge about something and to drive traffic. In addition, you also have forums on your Facebook Page which are installed by default. Fortunately, Facebook has given us the ability to remove it, if we do like to have it, so If you think that you don’t really need it simply remove it, because sometimes users will go to your forums if you’ve left it. If there is a content or not, many users will go ahead and post their own threads and then check back later for replies. So you need to check back regularly to see if any content has been posted and be sure to reply to any new posts.

Post Thread Topics To Your Page
If you are looking to create a new dialogue and drive more users to the forums, post links to the new or the best discussion threads to your Facebook Page wall. Also, If you think that your fans should know about that thread. Furthermore, what you need to do is to copy the link of the thread and post it to your Page wall so that all the fans can be engaging with that topic.

Be connected with your discussions forum
You can also take the advantage of your forum to using it as support. You can write in your website to your visitors of customers that they can use the forum for faster respond or better help. sometimes you’ll find that other fans will answer a fan’s question without needing to answer it yourself. Other times you can engage users directly and answer whatever questions they may have.

Play Games
If you seriously want your fans to interact with you, you should play games with them. You don’t need to develop or install an application for this, Games here isn't a contest. In addition, you only should be able to come up with plenty of games and determine the best incentives.
