Introduction To Threads App

What is the Threads app? How does it work?

Threads is a new app, built by the Instagram team, for sharing text updates and joining public conversations. The app is a companion to Instagram, and it allows users to share photos, videos, messages, and other content with a select group of people. Like on Instagram, with Threads you can follow and connect with friends and creators who share your interests – including those you follow on Instagram and beyond. And you can use our existing suite of safety and user controls.

How does it work?

to get started with Threads: simply use your Instagram account Download the Threads app into your phone once you download it will automatically connect to your Instagram account. then it gives you the prompt to create your own name and bio etc… you can fill that out or you can select import from Instagram button and it will copy every information from your Instagram Account.

Next, you will get the option to select whether you have a private account or public account. If you choose to have a public profile anyone on or off Threads can see, share and interact with your content. And then on the private account, only your approved followers can see and interact with your content. After that Threads gives you an option if you want to follow the same accounts you follow on Instagram. You can follow all and you can simply choose and follow some. After completing these steps, you have your Threads account.

Since Threads is powered by Instagram, in order to delete your Threads profile, you will also have to delete your Instagram account.
