The Caption of Photo/Video or Writeup

The Caption of Photo Video or Writeup

Start writing the caption when your photo and video are ready to upload. The following should be the attributes of the writeup.

Short and Concise

Although Instagram allows 2200 words per post, which is approximately equivalent to two A4 size pages, it is not necessary to use the whole quota of the word. Be concise and prepare your punch line to mesmerize the reader. Your starting and ending should be entertaining and capitavative.


It is necessary to explain the features and relevant information about the photo or reel you have uploaded. Do not provide unnecessary information or links unrelated to your uploads or niche.


Your content should be original, legitimate and unplagiarized. Try to read articles and blogs related to niche, but do not copy-paste them, as web crawlers can easily detect them and report your page. Cite all the sources of your information and give them due credit. Your citation will make your paper more credible and trustworthy.

Check the Grammar

Your blog must be grammatically correct, as a writeup full of mistakes and typos gives a bad feeling to its readers. It is okay to use abbreviations that might not be grammatically correct but are often used in social media; typical examples are OMG and BTW, which means oh my god and by the way, respectively.


Hashtagging is often used in social media platforms to describe the niche of your post. It also passes the information about the relevancy of your post. Whenever a person searches for that hashtag, your post or story will appear in the search.

Instagram allows 30 hashtags in a post and ten hashtags in a story. Your comment or post will not be published if you use more than the allowable limit.  

The picture below shows the hashtagging from this page.



Geotagging is the information of the location of that photo taken or the location of the shoot of the reels. It gives your followers information about your location or the place you have visited. It is also easy for someone to know about the place by geotagging.
