What is an Instagram caption?

An Instagram caption is a text that appears under your photo on Instagram and may include hashtags, emojis, and links. It is limited to 2,200 characters (310-550 words with spaces). In short, we use Instagram captions to describe our photos.

Remember, an Instagram post’s most engaging caption length is no more than 50 words.

How to write an engaging Instagram caption?

A great caption can make a photo much more engaging and fun. Here are some tips for writing excellent Instagram captions:

  • Use emojis, but be careful to place only a few of them.
  • Make it simple. Captions can be brief. You don’t need to write a novel every time you post on Instagram.
  • Be creative, fun, and positive. Combine, change and surprise your audience. It is the chance to show off your personality.
