Have you been keeping up with the new features Instagram has been adding in the last couple of years? Instagram has new messaging app called Threads which designed to keep you and your close friends connected.
Here’s Instagram’s explanation: "Over the last few years, we’ve introduced several new ways to share visually on Instagram and connect with people you care about – from sharing everyday moments on Stories to visual messages on Direct. But for your smaller circle of friends, we saw the need to stay more connected throughout the day, so you can communicate what you’re doing and how you’re feeling through photos and videos. That’s why we built Threads, a new way to message with close friends in a dedicated, private space."
You can access messages received in Threads in your Instagram direct messages and the Threads app. It gives other people a chance to engage with the features of Threads without having to instantly download the app. Instagram created Threads because Instagram’s data shows that 85% of messages shared on Instagram are distributed to the same three friends. Direct messages will be a more effective tool for broader connections.
You’ll be able to share your everyday movements with close friends because Threads makes it possible to automatically track what you do on a regular basis. You don’t have to use this feature if you prefer more privacy. For more details on Threads, visit this link!
