  • The superpower I want most is…
  • The first thing I’d do after winning the lottery is…
  • A guilty pleasure that I’m willing to admit to is…
  • Mondays make me feel like…

So this is the format of the questionnaire. Once the users answer these questions, their answers will be shared with their Facebook friends. The answers will go live in form of a colorful status update. So Facebook wants its user to be more active and share their personal details with their friends.
