No matter what kind of post you have, there should be a decent selection of short captions for you to choose from. There’s a short caption for every occasion, from captions for selfies to Instagram quotes.

Ready for the short captions? Let’s go!

What Make A Good Instagram Caption?

If you use Instagram a lot or not, you probably know that you can say a lot about your pictures with your Instagram captions. But there is a big difference between a good Instagram caption and a bad one.

With the right combination of words, you can get your message across, tell a joke, or share how you feel. This is your online space, and you can share whatever you want.

You can even share lyrics to convey your feelings, engage with your followers by asking questions, or giving them information about yourself.

While there’s nothing wrong with a long caption, there is something to be said for short Instagram captions.

Why Keep An Instagram Caption Short?

While it’s up to you to decide if you want to write a long caption or a short one, not every Instagram post needs to be an essay. As the saying goes, a picture is worth a thousand words, so sometimes short captions are best.

Short captions can be just as fun, creative, inspiring, or motivational as longer ones, and by getting to the point quickly, you can let your audience focus on your photo.

How To Write An Instagram Short Caption

Writing short captions doesn’t need to be complicated. The most straightforward approach is to look at the photo and choose a matching caption.

For example, if you’re posting a photo with your bestie, a quote about being kindred spirits would be perfect. Or, if you’re at the beach, a lyric about the ocean might work.

Of course, you don’t need to use quotes or lyrics. You could also get creative and think of something yourself. Struggling for ideas? Check out our sample short Instagram captions below for inspiration.
