Have you noticed more and more videos on Facebook have captions? Are you wondering how to get captions on your Facebook videos to (hopefully) increase engagement and longer video views? Facebook has rolled-out an auto-generated caption feature for Pages.
We recently took a closer look at this feature to see how it works. At first, I thought the captions would not be close to the actual words said in the video. But after walking through the process, the captions are fairly close to the actual script, making the task an easy add-on.
To get to the auto-generated caption feature, click on “edit post” while in the admin setting of your Facebook page.
From there, select “captions” and then “generate."
This takes you to the Review Captions box, where you can click on play and go through the captions as the video plays.
It's as easy as that! If you have an extra five minutes at the end of your day, try it out.
And let us know in the comments how it works for you. Was the captioning generated by Facebook fairly accurate, or did you need to make major edits?
