How to Add Line Breaks on Instagram

How many times have you done and redone a post on Instagram because the spaces between paragraphs didn’t look right?

If you write a post on this social network and all the text is shown together and messy, the quality of the content will be reduced and the caption of the Instagram photo won’t be legible. 

As a great social media professional, the objective is the same for all:

↪️ Easily reach any type of audience

↪️ Ensure that the experience on your Instagram profile is enjoyable and encouraging for your followers so they come back. 

So, how do you insert line breaks and easily split paragraphs in both your captions and your bio?

How to Add Line Breaks in Instagram Captions

Before, Instagram did not allow users to add line breaks to their captions. Captions used to be grouped together making the information hard to read. Having a line break between the description of the post and the call to action makes it easier to tell what the post is all about.

Now all you have to do to create a line break on Instagram is simply click ‘return’ when you want to break up your caption.
