What is an Instagram Caption?
This is the text you publish below your photo.
This can be short, funny, everything you want. This section, the caption, has a limit of more than 1000 words – that is a lot of space to add some stuff.
Besides the catchy text that we will give you a hand for, you can also tag your friends with “@”. When typing @, instagram shows a drop-down list of potential people you can tag. Start typing your buddies name and it will pop up. Tag him or her by clicking on the name.
After the cool caption and tagging, you can include as well so-called hashtags.
For instance: #instagramcaption #funnytext.
Use popular hashtags that describe the photo you are about to share. Why?
This way you will increase your likes.
The more people can find your photos, the more likely it is someone likes it.
Simple as that.
