To Do … Write Clever Captions

Girls are obsessed with writing clever captions for their Instagram pics. (That’s what gets them half the “likes” right?) The upside of this particular social media obsession is that it creates a really fun community amongst them and their friends, because obviously they’re gonna send their Instagrammable photos to their pals before posting to see what awesome caption they should use. Their girlfriends then respond with the most creative, witty, poetic ideas that they can think of, and they’re always sending rave reviews and compliments to the owner of the pic! All of this friendly feedback comes via group text or their Finsta account before the photo is truly made public for all to see. These captions often contain movie references, or even nods to popular literature or poetry. Sometimes they’re a play on words or alliteration. (Who said social media teaches you nothing?!) And if all else fails, Buzzfeed has compiled a list of Drake lyrics suitable for any occasion. No, I’m not joking.

 

Spark the Conversation: Talk with your girl about how she comes up with clever captions for her posts, whether it’s an inspiring quote, song lyrics, or a funny pun. Practice creating your own captions together by playing a game where you show her a photo (preferably a hilarious one of you) to see who can come up with the best one-liner. I bet she’s better at it…
