‘Everything You Need to Know About Instagram’s NEW Threads App’ Workshop Description
Launched on July 5th, 2023, Meta (Facebook) describes Threads as a “new, separate space for real-time updates and public conversations” – in other words it’s their Twitter copycat! You could describe it as a cleaner, kinder, less toxic version of Twitter – which is good for people who want to have constructive conversations, and of course good for future advertisers. Though Threads is a separate app, you need to have an Instagram account in order to open a Threads account, and they’re connected in several ways. Threads is now available on desktop or on the mobile app! You can check out my Threads account here: www.threads.net/@juhliselby
Threads is open to everyone with an Instagram account in 100 countries (except for the European Union), on both iPhone and Android. And people are flocking to it and using it! They had 30 million sign ups after the first day, 70 million after the first 48 hours, and they passed the 100 million user mark after just 5 days! This set a record as the fastest growing free consumer app of all time – beating out OpenAI’s ChatGPT artificial intelligence chat app – which set a record of getting to 100 million users in just 60 days (end of January 2023).
In less than a week there were more than 95 million posts and 190 million likes shared on the app! With their early success Meta will be investing more people and resources into building and improving it. Mark Zuckerberg said, “The vision for Threads is to create an open and friendly space for public conversation”, and “The goal is to keep it friendly as it expands. I think it’s possible and will ultimately be the key to its success. That’s one reason why Twitter never succeeded as much as I think it should have, and we want to do it differently.” With Instagram’s moderation and privacy features, this could be possible. Many celebrities, brands, journalists, and politicians are already using it. As of September 2023 they have already added several new features – including a ‘Following feed’ with posts from accounts you follow, as well as a desktop computer option, and more!
We’ll briefly discuss the drama of Elon’s Musk’s X (Twitter) missteps, and how Threads could affect its future. We’ll share the benefits and potential opportunities, cover privacy considerations, and show you how to use Threads. Get inspired by early examples of success, learn about accounts to follow, and hear what the buzz is all about! While you might think the LAST thing you need in your life is another social network, this is one to seriously consider. Even with my passion (read: obsession) for social media marketing, I’m not one to jump on every new social app. However this one seems great so far, and with the experience and resources of Meta, I believe it could be here for the long term.
