This is part of my new series on 'How to be a Blogger' - just ignore this one if you're here for the food!
Okay, so we covered why your Facebook page is sucking, and what you can do to fix it, but coming up with engaging statuses can be a pain in the tuchus. Not to worry, I'm gonna go ahead and spoon feed them to you. Because, I love you and I want you to succeed. There's plenty of room on the internet for everyone!
Here's my tried and true list of Facebook status updates that will get people talking. I'm showing them exactly as they appeared on my page, but feel free to add your own flair! Also I've linked each one to my actual use of it, so you can check for yourself how well it worked! (For the purposes of perspective, as of this writing, my Facebook page has about 2,500 followers):
