That’s it! Our definitive list of the best captions for Facebook! We hope you liked our list of the most creative captions for Facebook profile pictures. Do you have any good captions for pictures that we have missed? Let us know in the comments!
More than just a caption for Facebook, we believe that the most important thing to drive engagement is making sure that the picture accompanying the Facebook caption is incredibly compelling. Let’s be honest a picture tells 1000 words! So why settle for substandard pics when your words are on point?
For us, the only way to ensure we have a stand-out, cracking shot is to use Adobe Lightroom Presets. Think of these as your photo editing game-changer; taking a good picture and making it GREAT by just using a solid preset. Check out some of these that we would highly recommend. Continuous use of the presets also helps your Facebook account (or page, or Insta) look consistent and premium.
Facebook Frequently Asked Questions
What should I write in my Facebook bio?
First impressions last! Make sure you write a short but sweet introduction to your Facebook profile.
We suggest including a smart quote or song lyrics, trying to make it a little funny and perhaps even bragging a little.
How do I optimize my Facebook profile?
Understand your own ‘voice’ and make sure you use it: write in your own tone, pick a photograph that represents you as your profile picture. Make sure to upload a corresponding header photo.
Check your privacy settings so that only those who need to see your activity, can see it. Remember to also check your list of trusted applications so that your information is safe.
What should I use for my Facebook cover photo?
Pick something that represents you but also that matches the tones and edit in your profile picture. According to Facebook, your cover photo is 820 pixels wide by 312 pixels tall on computers and 640 pixels wide by 360 pixels tall on mobile. Our advice is to crop it to 820px by 360px in a photo editing tool like Microsoft Picture Editor, but making sure the key information and graphics are in the ‘middle’ of the photograph.
Other essential Instagram growth tools
Want to increase your engagement on Instagram? Other than great content, there are a handful of tools we love that either support your account growth, or just help to increase engagement on existing posts and stories.
Hashtags for Likes
Hashtags are one of the best tools to get views from accounts that don’t follow you. This service finds custom hashtag lists that are worth the investment, and helps personalise them to ensure you get maximum reach (and follows) on each post. You can find out which hashtags are bringing you followers. They have a 14 day moneyback guarantee, which you can try here.
There are lots of scheduling tools and apps out there but we like Tailwind since you can also connect a Pinterest account, and it’s the best one on the market. Tailwind’s Instagram tool lets you schedule photos and videos, gives you 1 click hashtag suggestions and has a SmartSchedule to post when your audience is most engaged. You can get one month free (no credit card required!) here.
If you don’t want to go full automation, this tool is a great choice. With auto like functionalities, it grows your account slowly and can avoid blocks on your account. Kicksta is a cheaper (albeit not as well-rounded) alternative to Ingramer and competitors in that niche. Try it out here.
