It's always helpful to review job interview questions. Review questions you might be asked on an interview and add the questions you have been asked during your job interviews to the list of top interview questions.

What is a stretch for you the job req?

You should be honest. If you don't have experience in the industry, then say so, but that you're willing to learn. I had experience in the field, but not in the specific industry. Be honest because you don't want to lie and you also don't want them to think you're more experience than you really are.

What is your social media experience?

I didn't have professional social media experience, so I based it off of personal experience.

The new strengths and weakness question

Instead of asking what is your strength and what is your weakness? I have been getting the question, what excites you most about the position and what do you think is a stretch for you? This is different because it does not require a BS response as such strengths and weaknesses because it pertains to the job. Everyone BSes the strengths and weaknesses, the weakness actually, because you are supposed to come up with something as neutral as possible.
