What tense(s) is it acceptable to use in titles?

For example: In the the newspaper, or if I post on Facebook a video of someone that talked about me very nice in the video. Would I need to write in the title:

This woman talks nice about me.


This man is talking to me very nicely.


This man talked to me very nicely.

I would not use talk in reference to what someone says about you. Use say

This man is saying very nice things about me.
This man says very nice things about me.

Present tense is fine. I would not use past tense since when someone views the video it will be in the present time.
