    Hello i think that the meaning in english could be that one:

    Sobre: About

    Acerca de: Regarding, concerning, (about)

    But you have to keep in mind that Sobre also is "on" for example

    El libro esta sobre la mesa. = The book is on the table.

    Anyway when they means about it's almost the same meaning you can use whatever you want :)
