Captions are short phrases that summarize a photo or video. They can be used to describe mood, tell viewers what is going on in the scene and provide other information about subjects in the image. They can also include keywords describing an event, location, or activity to help with online visibility.
Captions don’t always have to be informational or witty, but they work especially well when they are short, to the point, interesting to viewers and entertaining.
