Instagram Caption Spaces & Line Breaks

The caption generator here automatically formats spaces and line breaks so you can copy and paste them right into Instagram and won’t lose your formatting.

We hope this guide was helpful and was exactly what you needed to finish that awesome Instagram post. We guarantee at least 100 likes with our captions, jk :). But, we do think you’re amazing and we’re glad you shared this IG moment with us.

Tips For Creating Your Own Great Instagram Caption

These are some pointers that we recommend. They’re all tried and true ways to get more engagement, more likes, and comments and as always, more followers.

  • Be relevant to the time and place. If it’s Christmas or winter, talk about the holiday season or how nice the warm fire is. If it’s New Years, graduation, etc. that is the time to bust out the captions that are relevant to what you’re currently doing
  • People will find it dope if you talk about yourself and open up. Tell people about your love of hiking and nature or snow in the crisp fall. You don’t want to go overboard but it’s important to show people a bit about yourself and your vulnerable side
  • Be witty and funny when appropriate. Bust out your favorite song or lyric.
A great caption begins with you. Be yourself. After all, that’s why people follow you. Because they like YOU.

Come back soon, we’ll miss you.
