Compatibility Goal To be compatible with open, interoperable social networks

 

In a recent announcement, Mark Zuckerberg unveiled the initial version of the app, it is developed by the Instagram team. It is specifically built for sharing text content, offering a separate and dedicated space for real-time updates and public conversations. The team is actively working towards making it compatible with open and interoperable social networks, which they believe will play a crucial role in shaping the future of the internet.

Instagram, a platform where billions of people connect through photos and videos, serves as the foundation for Threads. The vision behind the app is to leverage what Instagram excels at and expand that capability to include text, providing users with a positive and creative environment to express their ideas. Just like Instagram, Threads enables you to expand your network by following and connecting with friends and creators who share your interests, going beyond the accounts you already follow on Instagram.

Threads – Seamlessly Connect and Share with Ease

Threads

Threads, the latest addition to Instagram, offers a straightforward way to get started. Simply log in using your Instagram account, and your username and verification will seamlessly carry over. You also have the option to personalize your profile exclusively for Threads.

Private Profiles for Users Under 16 (or 18 in Certain Countries)

For users under 16 (or 18 in specific regions), Threads automatically defaults to a private profile. This ensures added privacy and protection. You can still choose to follow the same accounts as on Instagram and discover others who share your interests.

Enhanced Accessibility Features

Threads provide the same accessibility features available on Instagram. This includes support for screen readers and AI-generated image descriptions, making it inclusive for everyone.

A Streamlined Feed Experience

Your Threads feed comprises posts from the accounts you follow and recommended content from new creators. With a maximum length of 500 characters, you can craft detailed posts that may include links, photos, and videos up to 5 minutes long. Sharing your Threads posts to your Instagram story or linking them on other platforms is also effortless.

Enjoy a seamless connection and effortless sharing with the app, the latest companion to Instagram!

Threads – Fostering Positive and Safe Conversations

We prioritize meaningful interactions and user safety within the app. Threads empower you with built-in tools that provide control over who can mention or reply to you. Just like Instagram, you can take advantage of hidden word filters to effectively screen out replies that contain specific words. Additionally, managing profiles is easy with options to unfollow, block, restrict, or report by accessing the three-dot menu. Any profiles you’ve already blocked on Instagram will automatically be blocked on Threads as well.

Commitment to User Safety and Community Guidelines

Threads

At Instagram, safety is a paramount concern. We uphold Instagram’s Community Guidelines within the app to ensure a secure environment. Our commitment to user protection is reflected in the substantial investment of over $16 billion since 2016, dedicated to building robust teams and cutting-edge technologies. We continuously enhance our integrity efforts, aiming to be at the forefront of industry-leading safety measures and investments that safeguard our community.

What’s on the Horizon:

We are thrilled to announce the global launch of Threads, now available in over 100 countries for both iOS and Android users. You can download the app from the Apple App Store and Google Play Store in these regions.

We are continuously working on improving Threads and expanding its compatibility. Our upcoming plans include making Threads compatible with the Activity Pub protocol and opening up new possibilities for connectivity. Additionally, we have exciting features in development. These include enhanced recommendations in your feed, allowing you to discover more interesting threads and creators. We are also working on a robust search function that will make it easier to follow topics and trends in real-time.

We value your feedback immensely as we strive to build new features and introduce more enjoyable ways to connect on the app. Your input helps shape the future of it. We are excited to hear your thoughts and ideas.
