If you shy away from using Instagram in your social media marketing mix because it lacks an edit feature, you can add it back into your list of marketing tools to consider. On the Instagram blog, they wrote, “When you share a moment to Instagram, a typo shouldn’t get in the way.” Editing a caption has been one of the top requests that they’ve heard from the community. So now you can add a caption to a photo or video you’ve already shared or edit the caption you originally included.

To add or edit your caption:

  1. Tap below your photo or video
  2. Tap Edit
  3. Edit or add your caption, then tap Done
  4. The word Edited will appear above captions that have been edited when you tap Comment on a post

Note: You can’t edit comments on photos or videos.
