    "I never seem to be able to figure out what to post and how to post on Instagram as I am relatively a new user. Thankfully, I have Pinterest and it is full of amazing ideas on ways that help me to post the best and most accurate captions on my Instagram posts. The best part about using Instagram for this is that I can save posts that I especially like so I can go back later when I am ready to post to Instagram. Great app for captions!! "

    "I am a big instagram fan and am always trying to impress my friends with what I post and how I post. I was needing a new place to find idea's for captions so I checked out Tumblr. I was hoping that since anyone can post anything on Tumblr that I would easily find all sorts of caption ideas but sadly I was mistaken. There are way to many crazy posting to sort through so I had no luck. If you need new caption ideas, Tumblr is not the place for you."

    "I'm not sure if BrainyQuote is a great idea for an Instagream caption idea. Looking at BrainyQuote, it is filled with quotes from many different famous people. However, it may be somewhat possible to get a caption idea since there are a lot of quotes and topics. One could possibly make it work."

    "I love instagram and am always on the app taking pictures and making posts. Unfortunately, it is hard to keep up with all clever captions for all of my pictures. I am always looking for inspiration and ideas for new captions. A friend of mine recommended "We Heart It" a social app that is similar to Pinterest, as an option for caption ideas. I gave it a shot and tried the app, but honestly I was extremely underwhelmed. I thought the app lacked substance and wasn't relevant enough for what I was looking for."

    "I LOVE this app! Whenever I need a good caption for my Instagram, I open up this app and I can usually find a good one in a few seconds. Only issue with it is that there's no search feature, so if I have a keyword in mind (like "love"), I can't just search for every quote with "love" in it."

    "I'm looking to grow my online profile for my small business, and want some innovative caption ideas for use on my IG page. Behance doesn't provide much by way of captions, but it is a good spot for graphic design, photography, and digital design. It's not immediately useful to me, but I've bookmarked the site for later.

    "Gorgeous art? Check. Big community? Check. Great Instagram captions? Not so much. You can find as much art as you want on here, but if your hopes is a good caption for your photograph, you're way off-base. It's best to look somewhere else if you want to add some snap to your Instaposts, even if the art is nice to look at. "
