Many Facebook users have questions on how to socially interact on this social media platform.
Facebook Scientific Data
Here is some data that will help you in your interaction.

Asking questions also increases your comment rate.
Longer status updates, rather than shorter one, increase your interaction rate, as well. Many people have incorporated posting their content to more than one social media network at a time.
Since companies like Twitter only allow up to 140 characters, many people try to stay within that limit when posting to make sure they stay within the limit allowed.
Nonetheless, by providing longer messages or stories in your status updates you stand out from the crowd and provide a chance for your fans to connect.
