It would be helpful for people with social anxiety to know some conversation starters to avoid silence and awkward moments.

Getting to know other person, what they like, their hobby or something like that.

Here are ideas although they may not be helpful.
How are you today?
What kind of things do you like to watch?
Do you enjoy travelling?
Have you read any good books lately?
What is your favourite type of food?

Depends on the situation you're in.

Examples:
Meeting a new date: "so, are you from around this area?"
At work: "have any fun plans this weekend?"
With friends: "What have you been up to lately?"

You sometimes have to read people's body language before you start a conversation to see if they are open to talking or not.
