It's just another day on Earth, and there's yet another app making waves on the Internet. This time, it's going VIRAL. Hold on to your hats because Meta, the tech giant that owns Instagram and Facebook, led by our very own Mark Zuckerberg anna, has just announced another mind-blowing app for all of us. And guess what? It's happening right when people are already going bonkers over social media.
I'm sure you're aware of Elon Musk's famous challenge to Mark Zuckerberg for a "cage match." Unless you've been living under a rock, you must have caught wind of the latest frenzy: Mr. Zuckerberg's attempt to outsmart Mr. Musk by announcing this new app by Instagram called “Threads”, which some are calling a potential "Twitter killer."
I’m here to explain what threads; the app is about and how it can benefit your content creation journey.
Meta “Threads” - A Twitter Clone?
Get ready for the launch of Threads, an app by Instagram, coming on July 6th. But have you wondered why it's being seen as a threat to Twitter? Well, ever since Elon Musk imposed some crazy limitations on Twitter, people are hesitant to accept it the way it was before. As a result, many Twitter-like apps have been popping up. However, Instagram has taken a significant step by creating an independent app that has the potential to become Twitter's biggest RIVAL.
Oh, I'm sure Elon Musk is absolutely regretting and rethinking his decision about the cage fight challenge. 😬
Jokes apart I have some insider tips on what the Threads app might actually be. Want to hear the scoop?
Guess what? The upcoming Threads app, connected to Instagram, made an unexpected appearance in the Apple App Store on Tuesday, a couple of days before its official launch on Thursday. And that's not all—Meta has even set up a cool countdown website to build up the excitement.
A preview of the threads app says Threads will be a place,
"where communities come together to discuss everything from the topics you care about today to what’ll be trending tomorrow”.
Is Threads Creator-friendly?
Meta describes Threads as a "Text-based conversation app".
So, here's the deal with Threads: it's a standalone app that you can download on your phone. Once you've got it installed, it'll automatically connect to your Instagram account if you're already logged in. No fuss, no extra steps—just a seamless connection between Threads and your Instagram world.
It taps into your Instagram friends list to start communication. If you don’t use this list, then the app will suggest the users you are most in contact with on Instagram. And here's the cool part — any list you create within the Threads app will also be added to your close friends' list on Instagram. It's all about keeping your connections seamless and making sure you're in touch with the people who matter most to you.
“Whatever it is you’re interested in, you can follow and connect directly with your favorite creators and others who love the same things – or build a loyal following of your own to share your ideas, opinions, and creativity with the world,” the promotional text says.
Since Threads is connected to your phone’s camera, you can send videos and photos through it very quickly. You can also share automatic statuses, stories, and messages with selected friends.
Threads is billed as a place where you can,
"follow and connect directly with your favorite creators and others who love the same things."
So, creators! Threads, an app by Instagram, provides you with a private haven where you can directly connect with your audience and stay true to your niche. It's all about fostering genuine connections and sharing your authentic self and creativity.
But that's not all—Threads opens up a world of opportunities for you to express yourself in various ways. Whether it's through status, stories, or messages, you have a wide range of options to showcase your talent and engage with your audience like never before through personalized texts.
So get ready to explore, create, and make your mark in this exciting space!
