Set Up an Icebreaker Question

Break the ice by setting up a question that new members will see immediately after joining your Mighty Network.

To create a new Icebreaker Question, you need to first upgrade to the Community Builder or Business Plan so that your Mighty Network has Polls and Questions enabled. Then, go to Host Management > Premium Features > Icebreaker Question to create your question.

Once your question is saved, you can see how it looks to other members by tapping on View Answers


Your question can be drop dead simple, to the point, and totally obvious. The magic is that an Icebreaker Question gets your members contributing as soon as they join. With their new answers, new notifications go out, which in turn brings people back for a second visit. It's pretty cool.

Here are a few of our favorite icebreakers we've spotted in the wild:

  • What do you want to get from a community of peers?
  • What is your #1 goal for this year?
  • Where do you want to be in five years?
  • What's one new thing you tried today? How'd it go?

You can change the Icebreaker Question anytime by clicking on the button that says "Ask a Different Question." Or, you can remove it altogether by turning off this feature.

This new question will now be visible to new members as part of the onboarding process when they first join, and they will be prompted to answer the question after they've selected the Topics they want to follow.

This question is also open for existing members to answer if they see it in their feed, or if they find it via search.
