Instagram captions add more context to the story you’ll be telling using a picture. These words help explain why a picture was taken, the story behind it, or if that person wants to add something funny or insightful.
The best captions are normally short and easy to read. Most one-liners achieve this effect by being direct – no beating around the bush. Short captions also make it more likely for people to talk or share your post, or buy whatever product or service the post is about.
