A post on reelseo gives the basics on how to add closed captions to your Facebook videos with an .srt file.

Go to their instructions, but in a nutshell:  create a text file that follows SubRip closed caption style with numbered text blocks with timing codes in the format 00:00:10,000 –> 00:00:15,000  (which is down to the millisecond), save it with filenaming style (for US english,) then upload it along with the video file under ‘edit video’ menu in Facebook.

Whew that’s a lot of work.
