If you don't have captions on your Facebook videos, you are losing a ton of views. Most people will swipe past if their attention isn't caught or if they are in a situation where they can't listen to the audio. If you have a YouTube account, this solution works really well and will save you a ton of time!
Videos with captions have the highest completion rate. It's worth the time it takes to generate them, and now you have easy options that anyone can do. It's best to know all of your options! Watch the video tutorial above that takes you through YouTube's features, or explore how to create them in Facebook below.
NEW FEATURE: Don't have a YouTube account? That's okay. Facebook now allows you to generate video captions easily without a SRT file. Go to your video library, choose a video and select 'Edit Video,' then choose the 'Captions' tab and click 'generate,' and finally edit your captions as needed. All you need is a little time and effort.
