Caption Starters

What if you have a caption in mind but you’re not too sure what to say at the beginning to get people’s attention? Would they even read until the end?

If you’re ever in doubt or need some inspiration to start your caption: check the “Starters” captions.

Think of “Starters” as “hooks”. They hook people to read the rest of your captions,

For example, one of the Starters is:

  • “First of all, let’s address the elephant in the room: ______” 

As you can see there is a blank. All you have to do is fill in the blank with your story.

Tip: New captions come out before each season starts. So keep an eye out for them.

Love quotes

Feeling romantic today? Why not write a beautiful love quote for your selfie?

You’ll find super romantic quotes, and also very cheesy ones.

So feel free to choose whatever your mood of the day is.

Questions to ask your followers

You’ll also see that there are a lot of “Questions” categories in Preview.

For example:

  • “Travel Questions”, or
  • “Food Questions”

Every time you see the word “Question”, it means there are question ideas you can ask your followers about a certain topic.

Asking questions in your caption is just a natural way to start conversations with people – and therefore get more comments naturally. 

So scroll through the caption categories and look out for the “Questions” captions.
