How to Add Line Breaks to Instagram Captions - - Instsagram Hacks, Instagram Tips and Tricks, Social Media Marketing

Have you ever opened up your Instagram and seen something that made you outraged? Not something classically offensive, but rather a beautiful, perfectly formatted caption with clean line breaks? We're talking zero periods, no emojis breaking up the spaces... just gorgeous white space in between each chunk of text? To be honest, this used to drive me insane. I would see these beautiful captions without the little period in between lines and wonder, "How the heck are they doing this?" Now, I know the answer and I'm going to share with you today.


Why do we want a nicely spaced caption anyway?

A caption that looks easier to read is more appealing to the eye. When paragraphs are broken into small, easy-to-digest nuggets, the number of people who interact and read that caption skyrockets. What that means for you is more comments, more genuine engagement, more of all that good stuff you're looking for on Instagram.

The funny part is it's actually super, super freaking easy and will take you literally zero extra time.

But, there is a secret weapon. Here's the step-by-step guide to creating one of those beautiful, perfectly formatted post captions that you used to drool over:
